Stephanie Levi-John gives a fantastic performance as Tatiana, a Yaga full of heart and sass. She’s a delight to watch and
Samuel Wyer has done a wonderful job of the costume design with several beautiful pieces being featured. The costumes of the ‘dead’ feel simple yet stunning with their intricate details.
The entire cast shine on the stage, each an actor-muso meaning we get to experience the joy of hearing them playing some wonderful instruments.
This is a lovely adaptation of the story that is loved by many the world over. It’s the perfect show to take children to if you’re looking for a non-festive alternative at this time of year.
