James, Son of james

A few superb dance sequences padded out with tedium. At times I had that 'get me out of here' thetre feeling - I was not alone. The opening carpentry scene was an appalling mess, and set the tone for the whole work - weak, confused and not at all funny. The attempts at humour were no laughing matter, the plot banal and the acting awful. This is a dance company who have overstreched themselves into theatre - it didn't work. On the bright side, the job interview dance was tight and clever, and the sex scene open and wild - loved them both. OK to take a risk but it clearly didn't work. The previous reviews meant the audience was sparce.
