Tuxedo Cat’s Rivers Studio, Tue Feb 17
The last woman on earth, on account of a broken heart, will take you on a journey straight to the stars. Dressed in some surprisingly trendy pyjamas, Buzz (Rowena Hutson) and her beloved dog Sputnik give a funny and poignant tribute to every person who has ever dreamt of reaching space. There are no boring moments; Hutson’s show is engaging from start to finish.
Interaction with the audience, or “figments of her imagination” on Earth, is outstanding. She gets people dancing, up on stage with props and even has them throwing “stars” in the air. One of the best parts about this show is the quirky, homemade props, including an admirably built spaceship. They are used effectively throughout and add a great element to her one-woman act.
A Four-Eyed Guide To The Galaxy is filled with heartfelt moments and genuinely hysterical comedy. She finds a great balance between delivering serious parts of the story and making people laugh. Any scientific terminology also is explained to the audience and it is clear a lot of research has also gone into the show.
She is a skilful performer with an awesome talent for descriptive storytelling. This is an imaginative and interesting show with a creative script. Hutson’s infectious joy and enthusiasm (plus some killer final dance moves) will have you walking out with a smile. “Come for the spaceship, stay for the stars.”
A Four-Eyed Guide To The Galaxy continues at Tuxedo Cat’s Rivers Studio until Tue Mar 3.
