René Pollesch- Kill your darlings! Streets of Berladelphia

Posted on September 12, 2012

Most definitely the best show I have seen in a long time, this production from Berlin’s Volksbuhne am Rosa-Luxemburg Platz, was an intelligent, moving, highly crafted original. Fabian Hinrichs, the lead actor, is a superstar and the fifteen gauche gymnast kids who supplied the chorus were the perfect foil. I loved the text, I adored the music, the movement was fantastic, the set was hilarious as were the costumes. It just did everything right and a week later, I am still obsessed by it.
