Awesome show! Easily the best show I have seen in London so far.... the Girl in the main role is Amazing!!
Odd, weird and with wooden acting as well.
Music & sound was atmospheric, but it was all a bit too 'cartoon vampire' for my liking - did hear a youngish couple next to me attempting 'intellectualise' the show during the intermission... never a positive sign!
ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT FROM START TO FINISH. LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. Best thing I have seen for ages. The music is fantastic.
Just brilliant. Marla Rubin 's production of Let The Right One In is a chilling sunshine on the universal need to be let in...somewhere. In our current world of isolation and loneliness , the play reflects the victim and the victimizer, each with a hidden heart yearning to belong and to be loved. The staging is simple. A forest in the snow. But simplicity is complicated. The forest becomes surprising vignettes of parental isolation and abuse, professional responsibility, teenage testosterony bullying., vampirical blood letting and blood taking, and murder most foul. The humorous, foxy innocence of the main characters, a young boy and girl, gives the viewer a breathless hope that each will find the other.
Through the morass of " I didn't' mean to do it" and "Please forgive me", the word evil becomes synonymous with thirst. Which of us hasn't felt thirsty? I
Rumi told us hundreds of years ago, " I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the entire ocean in a drop. "
I left the theatre feeling lighter, simpler yet disturbingly heavier with the universal need for innocence.
Since I am also a bully, I urge you to find yourself there....quick, as I think it will be sold out for months and months.
