Dynamic transfer of the stage show.
I first saw The Car Man on stage at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth.
It was breathtaking. Not a word is spoken yet the story unfolds with crystal clarity. Matthew Bourne has tranferred the story to a small town American garage with it's horny men and flirty women, and the story centres on a drifter looking for a job.
I knew the music of Carmen fairly well before I saw the show, but it came over as fresh and dynamic. The DVD is a faithful transfer of the show, and still generates that theatre-going experience which is quite raunchy in parts. Thoroughly recommended.
I hope it is available on Blu Ray one day.
