Theatre photographer Alistair Muir has kindly uploaded a number of hi-res production stills for Mr Foote's Other Leg, currently running at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London. Catch the show if you can, it finishes in January! Mr Foote's Other Leg was listed in London Theatre's Top ten shows of 2015.
New comedies are extremely difficult to write, and Ian Kelly's adaptation of his own carefully researched and fascinating history of Samuel Foote and his relationship with the Theatre Royal Haymarket was a breath of fresh air in the West End. Genuinely funny, the carefully controlled performances led by a magnificent Simon Russell Beale provided moments of pathos that I've not seen in the West End for quite some time. As someone who rarely finds themselves laughing out loud, I couldn't stop myself from enjoying the expertly executed visual humour and witty one liners. One of the most enjoyable evenings of the year.
