What did our critic think of FALSETTOS | LIEFDE IN TIJDEN VAN CRISIS at DeLaMar? Falsettos is a combination of two one-act musicals, March of the Falsettos (1981) and Falsettoland (1990), the last two shows in a trio of one-acters (the first one was In Trousers).Music and lyrics by William Finn (Dut...

Toneelgroep Maastricht and Albert Verlinde Producties bring us a new production this season, Dagboek van een Herdersbond, based on the Dutch television series by Willy van Hemert, which aired from the late 70's to early 80's. A huge success with 6 million viewers....

by Chantal Kunst - April 17, 2022

After a successful tour through Dutch theatres, the ultimate venue for this show has proven to be Ahoy. RnB Icons is the ultimate throwback to the 80's, 90's and 00's. FroM Tupac to Boyz II Men, from Madonna to Aaliyah. The crowd is buzzing. The sheer energy in the room is from the get-go!...
BWW Review: DE PASSIE: A HEAVENLY MIX OF THE CLASSICAL MATTHÄUS PASSION WITH JESUS CH Photo BWW Review: DE PASSIE: A HEAVENLY MIX OF THE CLASSICAL MATTHÄUS PASSION WITH JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ at Theater de Flint
by Chantal Kunst - April 15, 2022

The full St. Matthew Passion is 3,5 hours. In general, the Jesus Christ Superstar audience wouldn't be in the MP audience and vice versa. This is a brilliant introduction to both genres, and let's be honest, make the MP more bearable. It's quite a tough musical piece, very Bach, heavy, dramatic, in ...

by Chantal Kunst - April 04, 2022

A black stage. A marble stone, which may or may not be a tombstone. And the oh so familiar barbed wire fences with eerie lampposts. As simple as the decor may be (by Joris van Veldhoven) yet it is very effective.  Lightning design by Coen van der Hoeven contributes to set the scene...

by Chantal Kunst - March 23, 2022

It must be said, Jon is the king of physical comedy. In particular, his will he/won't he pole dance act was a treat. His fellow cast members hold their own though. Joey Schalker plays a lovable dum-dum, and the number two as Harrie's partner and nephew Barrie. Margo Dames transforms easily from crud...

by Chantal Kunst - March 01, 2022

Renée van Wegberg. Singer and actress, and she proves to be one of the extraordinary ones. Her show Hou me Vast takes us on a journey through the Dutch repertoire of male beloved vocalists, most of whom are part of Dutch cultural heritage. Toon Hermans and Maarten van Roozendaal are amongst them, bu...

BWW Review: AMELIE DE MUSICAL ⭐⭐⭐ at Theater De Veste Delft! Photo BWW Review: AMELIE DE MUSICAL ⭐⭐⭐ at Theater De Veste Delft!
by Chantal Kunst - October 22, 2021

Christanne de Bruijn plays a ballsy Amélie. Her calm and quirky presence makes a perfect Amélie. Feisty on the one hand, yet awkward on the other. Her love-interest Nino (David Schwarz) is not a stereotypical leading character, which is refreshing. Not overly present but comes in and out of her life...

Overture and opening scene. The choral of nuns. It’s a beautiful, melodic and gorgeous song to begin with, but this rendition is just angelic. If Sunday mass would be so good in actual church, I would convert immediately and be there front row every week. Lead by Mother Superior (opera singer Franci...
