Night and Turning Tables, or Knights of Round Table


The opening one of Greg King’s spectacular sets, just waiting for the young Arthur and Merlin to appear.

Anyone with fondness for live shows who could, by hook or by crook, have attended a performance of KickstArt’s ‘Camelot’ in Durban and didn’t, deserves a kick-start up their own bottoms delivered by themselves.  It is tragic that the run is so short: tomorrow (3rd June) is the last day. It is outstanding theatre by any standards. Even now, try for a cancellation!

This review says it all.  I was going to do another write-up on it, but the lily in that link needs no gilding. Our minds remain filled with the magic of this show; some scenes play themselves over and over in memory.  This production has made the greatest impact on me of any live performance I have ever seen, and that includes the outstanding ‘Phantom’ in UK. If only it can be taken on tour!

  2. I’ve seen a few Shakespearean plays (one a high school production of Hamlet which was brilliant!), La fille mal gardee ballet, Grease, Torville and Dean’s Let’s Face the Music and Dance show when it visited Poole, but my favourites have to be the Russian Ice Dancers version of Phantom of the Opera (I have the soundtrack) and Cinderella.

      All outstanding shows, but I think you would agree if you were able to see it that this one ranks with all of them.
      I was also impressed when attending the West End London show of ‘Wicked’ partly because of the surprise of the Elphaba turnaround.
