The Tiger Lillies perform Hamlet

4 out of 5 stars
(2user reviews)
The world's foremost filthy neo-Brechtian-post-punk-falsetto-squeezebox-gypsy-cabaret-three-piece band take an unexpected turn, presenting a novel take on 'Hamlet' involving a new song cycle by singer Martyn Jacques, who takes on a Yorickish jester-corpse persona, plus circus, puppetry and video projection. A palpable hit?

Exciting in parts, tedious and boring in others. Dragged on a little, relieved when it finished. The Lillies not at their most fabulous best

Its great, fantastic staging, dark and brilliantly narrative lyrics, beautiful music, totally unpretentious full-on perfomances - really glad I saw this.
