Day 14: Electric Hotel

Only the headphones stopped my head from freezing and my mind numbing with boredom for the first 30 mins of this show. A dull sequence of dances is repeated, doubling the boredom. No doubt some smart ass choreographer will say that the audience have to place their own meaning on events, but I hardly cared. Ambiguity is often an excuse for the banal. Then, literally out of the blue light, it exploded into action. It was a bit like 'Noises Off' at times (I hate farce) but the scene with the white-suited singer on the top floor and fighting dancers was worth the wait. This show simply needed some serious editing.
