A reviews round-up for James Phillip’s McQueen at the St James theatre.
McQueen, James Phillips’ much anticipated new play starring Stephen Wight and Diana Argon opened at the St James theatre this week.
Critics praised Stephen Wight’s performance however on whole reviews have been pretty lackluster. What was tipped as a journey into the visionary imagination and dark dream world of Alexander McQueen is, according to the Daily Mail “style over substance.”
McQueen plays a strictly limited season from 12 May 2015 until 27 June 2015 at the St James theatre.
Average rating score for this production:
"An excellent lead performance by Stephen Wight cannot save this woozy, over-reverential reimagining of a creative iconoclast"
"insufferable navel-gazing" "Dianna Agron's stilted performance and snigger-inducing poetic lines make this a fashion faux-pas"
"Strikingly designed if awkwardly executed and insubstantial celebration of the life and work of Alexander McQueen"
"Style over substance. That’s fashion for you"
