Extrav review

Extrav review

While agreeing with most of Dave Smith's review of "Extrav", I feel he has done leu than justice to three members of the cast.

Firstly, Helene Wong, whose vitality and enthusiasm infected the audience (but not unfortunately the rest of the chorus). It was a pity that the producer neglected her undoubted acting ability.

Scondly, Peter Graham, who gav us several nice movements, but whose Muldoon Fuehrer transformation was one of the show's highlights.

And finally John Clarke, whom Mr Smith gives barely a mention. His highly individual stage presence bordered on comic genius. The dead pan Hamlet, the rolling George Beverly Shea, the snow-flecked maniac, Mr Paisley, and particularly Pete Kelly; Mr Smith dismisses them too lightly; they were performances to savour.

Roger Hall.
