ED2012 Musicals Review: Beulah (The Flanagan Collective #LittleFest at C nova)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

I’ve discovered a beautiful secret. Somewhere beyond the horizon, beyond measured time and space, lies Beulah, a land between our first wink of sleep at night, and our last in the morning. For one marvellous hour, Beulah was mine (okay, and several other people’s) and I was flying, with boy princes, girl queens, lions… did I mention this is a two-man show? Floating from one delicious moment to the next on a folk-music breeze, players Ed and Jim tripped from harp to banjo, greeting them like old friends, serenading each with otherworldly harmonies, as characters fashioned from folds of silk danced ethereally in the air. For one hour Beulah was mine; reality seemed the dream as the houselights went up.

C nova, 2-27 Aug (not 13), 5.15pm.
