BWW Review: PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, Royal and Derngate, 2 December 2016BWW Review: PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, Royal and Derngate, 2 December 2016
by Verity Wilde - Dec 3, 2016

Making the European premiere of Peter and the Starcatcher the not-panto Christmas show in Northampton's Royal Theatre may well have been an inspired move by the powers-that-be at Royal and Derngate. There are no soap stars, celebrities or Britain's Got Talent competitors here, but it does feel like it has some shared DNA with a pantomime. There's a dame - Michael Matus's Mrs Bumbrake; an evilly over-the-top baddie you can't take your eyes off in Greg Haiste's Lord Flashheart-eque Black Stache; and Evelyn Hoskins' Molly is practically a Principal Boy. And that's before you get to the fact that this is a prequel of sorts to Peter Pan. There's jokes about farts for children, about British colonialism for grown-ups and about Philip Glass for the geeks. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Nov 19, 2016

Astor Piazzolla pays homage to the music of Antonio Vivaldi with his own four movement, tango-inflected 'Four Seasons,' which reflects the life and soul of his native Buenos Aires. This signature work from the 1960s is deeply informed by Piazzolla's multicultural upbringing, which saw him introduce influences of classical, jazz, rock and klezmer into a unique Nuevo Tango style. Originally composed for Piazzolla's own quintet, we feature the new PSU violin professor, Tomas Cotik, in an arrangement for solo violin and string orchestra by the Russian composer Leonid Desyatnikov.
