Reviews are in for Peter & The Wolf

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

From what we can gather the show was charming, family friendly, a shear delight and an enormous success. It was even filmed by the BBC. Fingers crossed it gets broadcast across the world and gets a good DVD release! The Independent ”Will Kemp is a charming narrator, confiding and energetic.” The Telegraph ”Kemp (as the Grandfather) has a winningly wrongfooting fusion of headmasterly grouchiness and physical dexterity.” musicOMH **** (4 Stars) London Evening Standard **** (4 Stars) The Guardian  ”Equally family-friendly…” The British Theatre Guide    “The dancing is lovely…”   “Actor-Dancer Will Kemp in good voice as the Narrator Grandfather…”    The Daily Express  ”Grandfather/Narrator (Will Kemp) and Wolf (Sergei Polunin) strut their stuff magnificently - Kemp is Jackanory camp…”
