ED2012 Theatre Review: Shakespeare For Breakfast (C Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 4 August 2012

C Theatre brings the popular TV genre ‘dramality’ to the stage: Picture the Montagues as the cast of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ and the Capulets as the characters from ‘Made In Chelsea’ and you’ll understand how this production is rife with cringeworthy moments you’ve witnessed a hundred times before; yet the seemingly tireless cast and audience members alike retain the capacity to enjoy. The company swap comfortably in and out of Shakespearean text, creating a balanced fusion of the bard’s well-known lines and continuous pop-culture references. The upbeat soundtrack is doubly brought to life by Romeo and Juliet’s recital of a soppy pop-lyric mash up in place of their traditional wedding vows. Light entertainment providing a well-intentioned way to shed the sleep from your eyes.

C, 2-27 Aug (not 14), 10.00am.
