Audience: Rosalie Gilbert


Gideon and the Blundersnorp

Michael Shapiro once again charms the audience with his songs and scores. I particularly loved Gideon, who was portrayed with the right amount of longing for a character who years for so much more. He brought life to a stable-hand who just wanted to be an assistant of an assistant to an assistant. The songs were catchy and the narrative fun. A colourful romp with colourful characters. And swords. The tale of a stable-hand who yearns to ride to the heady heights of an assistant to an assistant of an assistant of a cavalier. Really, what more do you need?
