The Light Princess
It's finally here! After four years and even a postponement a couple of years ago, "the Tori Amos musical" has finally arrived at the National. For a show so long in the making, it has more flaws than you would expect but they cannot dim the magic of The Light Princess.
Now when you tackle a story about a girl who is continually floating, it automatically sounds like a technical nightmare, but in this production it is an utter dream. For the princess, played by Rosalie Craig, they have used the talents of four acrobats and a few wires to create a weightless effect in the most elegant fashion.
