Produced by Compagnia della Rancia. A divertissement on filmmaking.

His James Bond switching from black to white tuxedo while he is onstage and we have no idea how it is done. Unfortunately the quick change acts are strung together with an artificial narrative where Bracchetti dressed as his older self switches to his younger persona and sets off on a world tour.

This linking narrative has writer and director Sean Foley's own particular brand of nonsense on it and it is a shame that it detracts from Brachetti's excellent quick change routines. The Federico Fellini section will not make any sense to any but film buffs and children in the audience may be upset at Harry Potter's owl being shot down.

Although Brachetti with his cheekily boyish grin is an excellent clown this show does not have the emotional content which made Slava's Snow Show such an international success.

The recorded music helps keep up the pace with its strong cues for the costume sections so we can instantly recognise the film stars. There is a sequence, a tribute to painters like Monet, Magritte and Van Gogh where Brachetti wears extravagant outfits adorned with sunflowers or waterlilies. The interaction of live stage act with a screened video so that people appear to walk out onstage from the film clip has been seen often now.

The shadow hand action of birds, ducks and rabbits is really old hat and not what you expect to pay West End prices for.


The finale has Brachetti in a will o' the wisp spin and disappearing. Far better to see him in a night club setting where his jaw dropping costume changes will delight and surprise.
