The synergy of all design elements enhances the storytelling. The costumes, predominantly in a green colour palette, beautifully complement the overall aesthetic. The realistic set design, as described earlier, immerses the audience in the world of the play. Finally, the lighting design dances gracefully through the performance, enhancing every scene with precision and artistry. I feel I should add here that even the programme is beautifully designed, informative and in keeping with the design concept.
Prior to attending the show, concerns arose regarding the portrayal of the reverse aging process on stage. However, these fears were quickly dispelled as Jamie Parker, in the role of Benjamin Button, delivered an extraordinary performance. Through the skilful use of costumes, props, and remarkable acting, Parker masterfully sheds the years before the audience's eyes, leaving a lasting impression.
