Ought To Be Clowns barely saw 250 shows this year, quiet by his standards. And as is the way of these things, here’s a rundown of some of the productions that moved me most…
In the space of just three shows, Out of the Forest Theatre has indisputably become a no-questions-asked do-what-you-can must-see company for me and so by extension, for you too. Now it is the turn of Call Me Fury to weave its theatrical magic at the Hope Theatre.
Call Me Fury is a wonderfully poetic disembowelling of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, as told by the women who were accused of “witchcraft” during the Salem witch trials of 17th century.
Jukebox musicals are fine in their place, movie adaptations likewise are ever increasingly the norm, but they need love and inspiration to elevate them.
