Review: BLUETS at Royal Court

It would be the purest understatement to suggest that theatregoers have been wildly anticipating director Katie Mitchell’s latest live cinema production — the art form which hybridises a live stage performance piece (often relayed through stage mics on stands) which moves at a preordained rhythm and uses back screening and props used by performers who are usually ranged in a straight row facing the audience. When it comes-off and flows seamlessly, it can be simply breathtaking. So how does BLUETS compare with other examples of the genre, for example the extraordinary LITTLE SCRATCH also directed by Mitchell?
