Just some unofficial fun photos from backstage. The production’s gone on to Taiwan now, so after just a few days of rehearsals and five shows, the Hong Kong actors have done their bit. It’s been great fun to work on the production, and the whole team has been impressively cohesive and professional.
On top of that I think it’s really a very good show and I’d have definitely wanted to see it if I hadn’t been in it. The live music is particularly special in my opinion, and I think finds a good balance in supporting the action without becoming an excessively cinematic underscoring. I’m not going to review it here because I’m obviously a bit biased, but I would definitely recommend seeing it if it comes to whatever country you’re reading this from.
Scottish Parliament scene from the dress rehearsal photos. I’m sitting front right. I would always credit the photographer, but I can’t find out who it is! (not credited on the government site I took this from).
