Great Expectations MUSICAL THEATRE MUSINGS ****

Theatre Lab are renown for their visually striking shows and after seeing Great Expectations I can understand why. The set is dressed beautifully to hint at what is to come whilst still allowing the action to flow throughout the play. The macabre atmosphere is heightened by the lighting design and the chilling choice of music throughout the piece. This production of Great Expectations has succeeded in ensuring that this classic text remains accessible to all and brings the story to life through a visual feast for the senses.
