High Rise and Camden People's Theatre Presents MERRYVILLE
by BWW News Desk - Oct 10, 2016

It's 2020. Since the UK's withdrawal from the EU, dodgy politics, austerity and civil unrest have left the streets of London in turmoil. A new coalition between the Conservatives and UKIP has driven house prices to an all-time high. Two local rappers (Dr Green Fingers & Dustin Roads) find themselves in the last 'affordable' housing block in London. They have to work two jobs to make ends meet, options are thin, and as they flirt with the idea of leaving their home, sparking revolution or a life of crime, they can't help but dissect the politics that have surrounded them the past 10 years.

BWW Review: THE LAST FIVE YEARS - Great Performances, Underwhelming Show
by Tim Carney - Nov 29, 2016

Vic Theatre Company has had a very auspicious beginning, staging the award winning Loving Repeating, the hilarious 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and now the joint billing of Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years and Jenkins and Hannagan's Australian musical The Gathering. This week The Last Five Years opened with two very strong performances in this two handed musical tracking the five year relationship of Jamie and Cathy. The musical starts at the beginning of the relationship for Jamie and the end for Cathy and crosses over with their wedding in the middle of the 80 minute one act piece. Often seen as a breakout work for Brown and a worthy member of the contemporary musical theatre canon, the piece itself was somewhat flat and underwhelming. That's not to say the performances were in any way, far from it. However, as a whole, Jason Robert Brown's score isn't particularly vibrate or clever within the context of his show. There are of course moments of brilliance, however, these moments are few and too far between. (more...)
