The production values are still very high, from William Ivey Long’s gorgeous costumes to spookily atmospheric lighting by Ben Cracknell
WHATS ON STAGE
The show is one big highlight from start to finish. Putting on the Ritz turns into an all-out production number with the chorus hoofing in Frankenstein boots, brilliantly lit by Ben Cracknell, bringing Hollywood glamour to his palette of old movie spotlights and colour washes. Beowulf Boritt’s set uses traditional painted backcloths that heighten the theatricality of the piece while hearkening back to the old movie sets. The atmosphere is perfect.
BUM ON A SEAT
From pyrotechnics to secret passageways, there was never a dull moment so a special mention must go to Beowulf Boritt and Ben Cracknell for their set and light respectively.
