Ben Hur @ The Tricycle Theatre Review

 

Friends, Romans, Countrymen! This winter season Ben Hur is well and truly here to stay!

Who ever thought so many roles could be taken on, adapted and made funny by a meagre four lead actors. The utterly charming John Hopkins leads audiences into the world of the play, making it known that he himself is the ‘one true star of the show’. Unlike the onscreen version of Ben Hur this production incorporates a great deal of comedy throughout and rarely has a dull moment in sight. The acting talent is top notch and the over theatricality of the whole thing is unquestionably attractive to watch.
