Happy Unhappy

It's the end of the first week of the London run (and World Premier) of Unhappy Birthday and the reviews are in...

'directed by alt-cabaret dynamo Scottee, whose hand seems evident in the simple, effective colour scheme and thoroughgoing embrace of mess: be prepared to leave spattered with cake, gladioli petals, Dax hair wax and Eau de Moz' - Time Out Theatre **** (full review)

'witty, kooky and frequently shocking' - The Stage (full review)

'an edgy, uncomfortable but riotous, messy teenage party' - Londonist (full review)

'a trip inside the head of a performer who knows how to do slapstick' - Broadway World (full review)

and some lovely twitter vox pops 

@abitnotgood Loved @amylame 's #unhappybirthday Morrissey tribute show/party/religious experience tonight. #thereisalight

@OdetteToilette Congrats to @amylame for her fab show of teen angst and party poppers, #unhappybirthday

@Wildeaboutmoz Moz Fans, if you go to just one show this year go and see the fantastic #UnhappyBirthday by the delightful Amy Lame. 

I couldn't be happier, I think this means the National will be phoning really soon asking me to direct Dawn French in a new show about sploshing. Next week we have only 40 tickets left for the whole week after which we will be jumping in a car and heading to Contact to begin the regional tour (full dates & venues). Come, you even get cake.
