AM I PRETTY? – Camden People’s Theatre

In London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Daniel PerksLeave a Comment

The start of Am I Pretty? feels like an academic exercise – the premise is to convey a set of situations surrounding cosmetic surgery by utilising the jazz musical form as a framework to structure the performance. The set is fairly scant and black box, the costumes a half-complete set of measuring marks (typically found on mannequins) that the characters can remove fabric pieces from as they undress and shed preconceptions about the topic.
