The Cast of The Comedy About A Bank Robbery
The whole cast was hugely talented, and it is hard for me to pick my favourites so that's why I'm not going to pick any in this review. The timing is very important in shows like this one and whole cast nailed it. There were a few cheesy songs in this show and the cast showed their impressing vocal skills. Everyone presented their character clearly through their facial expressions, body language and the voice tone. The cast worked together very well, and the audience laughed their heads off.
The set designed by David Farley was breath-taking. I was amazed by how the set worked in the vent escape scene as the whole set was literally turned 90 degrees leaving some actors to play nearly upside down (it's hard to explain but it makes sense when you see it live).
This show gets:
This is a true masterpiece and The funniest play I've eVER SEEN !!!
