Review of UoN Fringe 2019: Paris La Nuit by Nostalgia Theatre Company at Hazelrigg House, Northampton
Jean Clement is our host, happy to entertain, get us inebriated and plays us cool jazz while he does so. It's a masterful performance from Gellard, just becoming the man, cooly leaning smoking his cigarette as we assemble in our chairs and never dropping the role from then on it.
Having said that though, as the story progresses, it does become a little unclear regarding how the story is developing. It's as if the story is becoming as laid back as Clement is at times. Oddly enough this doesn't matter, it involves something about blackmail and Mathieu, and maybe that is all that matters in this case, as it's all done with a style that matters not. Well to me in any case.
