slings and arrows

we thought we’d made magic on opening night but it appears that Alan Brissenden who writes for The Australian may have had a bad prawn (or perhaps consumed a plastic beaker of the Princess Bar’s oxymoronically flat ‘bubbles’); for his review of ‘seven’ was, to say the very least, bitter. Apparently he thought my costumes ‘grubby’, was cantankerous and nasty about the choreography, didn't have his hearing aid in properly so missed the dialogue and completely misinterpreted Dan’s lovely stage design.
other reviewers have been rather kinder. (each highlight there links to a different review).
there are lessons here; not least that one should not be unduly troubled by what others think.
and that we all see the whirled through very different eyes.
