Reviewers and audiences alike are being moved and entertained by Angela’s Kitchen. Jason Blake in the SMH describes it as ‘…a deeply felt tribute to Angela’s fortitude in particular – and by extension, to all those who take special care of us as children and profoundly affect the people we become.’
The central character is of course, Angela, and Paul brings her to life in an ‘ode to a woman he loved very much; it is the performer opening the door to his past and inviting all of us in’, so says Laura Parker at Time Out.
Rather fantastically, Lloyd Bradford Skye from Curtain Call, thinks ‘Paul Capsis should wear a cape, to forewarn of his superhuman talents’.
Make sure you bring a packet of tissues with you, as ‘at the end he shares his most precious memories with the audience, many of whom were holding back tears. Deeply affecting theatre’, says Elissa Blake from the Sun-Herald.
Stage Whispers sums it up by saying ‘delightful evenings like Angela’s Kitchen are a reminder of just how powerful, engaging and charming theatre at its simplest storytelling levels can be.’
