Vomitorium … Someone Gets it Right!

Kudos accrues to Ian Shuttleworth in the Financial Times!

The Old Market is not as accommodating a theatre space as it appears: playing on three sides like this puts the performers some distance away from the main bank of audience. However, director Jo McInnes counteracts this by smart use of vomitorium aisles for entrances, exits and backing vocals during musical numbers, adding a surround-sound feel to Thor McIntyre-Burnie’s wonderfully discreet ambient sound design.
