"Beautifully brilliant and somewhat bonkers; Matthew Bourne’s, Edward Scissorhands delivers a superb dance production like no other."
The removal of the dialogue unleashes the imagination to a level that grips and emotionally engages the audience throughout the entire show.
Based on the classic Tim Burton movie is possess all the eccentricity of the film, but somehow even within the confides of a theatre makes it even more surreal.
The musical score is wonderful, simple but very powerful that perfectly fits the fascinating twists and turns of this charming yet, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world.
Armed with a brilliant cast, the show tells the story of Edward’s journey from being created by an eccentric inventor, who sadly dies leaving a lonely Scissorhands to kindly be taken in by a neighbouring loving family.
His presence divides the colourful suburban life he suddenly finds himself in. His bizarre appearance unnerving most, until his maverick cutting skills find appreciation.
The brilliance of the dancing is captivating; the expressionism, depth and emotion is superbly displayed resulting you not only perfectly following Edward’s story but actually feeling it.
The audience loved it, not even an unexpected technical fault and break in the production could prevent the cast receiving a thoroughly deserved standing ovation.
Trust me, when I say, I've never seen anything like it, but make sure you do!
