Reviews & Awards

George Allen - The Chronicle

October 1999

There are few shows which capture the 60’s like A Slice of Saturday Night. The lively show, performed by BROS Theatre Company, is packed with music and dancing but a more serious undercurrent flows through it. When a group of 17-year olds begin to discover some terrifying emotions related to growing up, the show becomes much more of an excuse for a nostalgic wallow.

BROS’s two directors Melanie Edwards and Wesley Henderson-Roe delivered a very rounded portrayal of the adolescent world. The cast rose to every challenge whether musical, dramatic, funny, wry or tragic.

Derek Ruby led the ensemble as Eric de Vene, owner of Club A Go-Go giving a tremendous performance cloaking his sense of responsibility for the kids beneath a cynical veneer, fooling them but not us.
