Delicately balancing themes of love, lust, obsession and disappointment, Bryant has crafted an emotional roller coaster that powers between comedy and intense drama... His music is mature in its emotional honesty without falling into the trap of being unnecessarily glib and gives each of the four cast members a huge amount of character to sink their teeth into.
A hoot. With Jye Bryant's brilliantly written music, this journey into the world of the enigmatic Steven offers a mirror to our many shared foibles, tricks and adventures into love, lust and living it to the full. Efficiently staged, and fast paced, the time flew and was amazing how fluidly the story unfolded using clever stagecraft. Catchy and cheeky.
I found the whole thing extraordinarily well-crafted and beautifully balanced between the four actors. There was great variety in all the tunes, nothing was clichéd an it was easily understood. I must admit to being a bit shell-shocked by the subject matter as it was so true to life. I found it unexpectedly profound."
This was the best show I have seen in a long time. The music was brilliantly written, the lyrics are witty and funny and the cast delivered all of this in an amazing way. A great story that kept all of the audience moved with so many different emotions. If you get the chance to see it, do it. You will love it.
A special thank you to your stellar cast. They entertained me, they made me cry, they made me laugh, they made me think, see and hear. They made me listen and they made me happy.
It was warm, emotional, funny and thought-provoking. A great piece of work.
A stunning piece of musical theatre that was funny, gritty, moving, powerful and real.
So thought-provoking, a bit of a tear jerker, but thankfully the comedy stopped the sad tears and created fun tears. Loved every minute of it!!!
Nice to see a show that you don't stop thinking about two minutes after leaving the theatre.
Funny, clever, moving, outstanding performances and singing and the most beautiful score.
Truly beautiful, original, honest and exciting new work.
Beautiful script and score for this complex and sometimes painfully true look at four people's relationship with Steven.
So much emotion, so much gorgeous music, so much talent - from all involved. Parts were uncomfortably truthful, breathtakingly honest and included some real belly-laugh moments.
The story telling is crisp - a genius mix of engaging, funny and yet such heartrending moments. It's a story you EXPERIENCE.
The story is expertly crafted to make the audience develop a deep connection to Steven despite his absence from the stage.
