My Perfect Mind @youngvictheatre, wonderful, anarchic take on playing King Lear. Edward Petherbridge most elegant man on London stage

Mark Shenton ‏@ShentonStage
Just back from opening of MY PERFECT MIND @YoungVicTheatre, a layered, playful & poignant story of Edward Petherbridge’s stroke & recovery.

@toldbyanidiot93 production of #myperfectmind is brilliant. Touching, theatrical and very,very funny, “if it ain’t broke, break it”.

#myperfectmind is a joy and a delight. Loved its humour, its wild swoops across time and space and its wisdom about life and Lear @youngvic

Jesse Briton ‏@youbigjesse
Do anything to see #MyPerfectMind by @toldbyanidiot93 @youngvictheatre utterly, utterly brilliant. Touching, funny, and life-affirming.

One thought on “4 stars for My Perfect Mind, “an exquisite piece of tomfoolery” – UPDATED

  1. I hated it, fell asleep, would have walked but I was wedged in at end of long line of stage school luvies, who all screeched with laughter at what must have been private jokes. Not accessible to a lowly non luvie, yet theatre loving pleb. I just didnt get it.
