Emma Gersch’s clear, pacey and hugely enjoyable production owes not a little of its success to Matthew Reeves’ original score, so evocative of the 1920s, and the scintillating playing of his talented quartet of musicians, who not only play at least 2 instruments each, but also dance, act and occasionally sing. The play ends with a joyous rendition of Feste’s final song by the whole company, to which the audience cannot help but clap along. A fitting ending to an ebullient, effervescent and extremely intelligent production.
