Twelfth Night!

800x600.fitdown-2At the end of a good weeks work at the retreat I drove off to the Sheffield Crucible to watch Brian playing Feste in the English Touring Theatre’s production of Twelfth Night. Directed by Jonathan Mumby, who directed the wonderful RSC production of Wendy and Peter Pan, I saw twice last year! This was a stunningly beautiful, exceptionally musical, production of Twelfth Night – I was completely transported. How perfect Brian was for the part of Feste, bringing together his exceptional talent as an actor and musician – the show seemed to emanate from his character, bursting onto the stage like phantoms emerging from his mind.

Fabulous, emotional, rousing music by  composer Grant Olding – acclaimed for his  music for One Man Two Govnors and a raft of shows for the National Theatre.
