ED2012 Musicals Review: Facehunters (The Hungry Bitches)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

The drug infested scene of East London provides the perfect backdrop for a twist on ‘The Picture Of Dorian Gray’ and the stories of Sweetie, Juliet and Katherine. Musically, the songs were fantastic in portraying the scene and depicting the darker side of the culture where it is cool to be a mess, but the sometimes booming chorus unfortunately distracted attention from the main actors. Their random interjections punctuated the show and provided transitions from scene to scene, which were hit or miss. Some of the principal actors seemed to awkwardly struggle with their parts and were at times outshone by chorus members, but on the whole did well.

C, 3-27 Aug (not 13), 8.50pm.
