Breathtaking BBC London Radio

Susie Lindeman is superb.The full Vivien: the remarkable Susie Lindeman  is physically perfect in the role: birdlike, fragile, a wayward waif, eagerly intense in profile.

Unbearably touching

 Every gesture and line is immaculate, thought-through, elegant and telling, and it becomes mesmerizing.

Vivien Leigh recreated.Wow.  LIBBY PURVES, 4

 

 Lindeman is captivating,

and convincing as Leigh: she navigates the stage brilliantly

 Extremely impressive Lindeman’s performance is brilliant  

Impressive, legitimately Leigh,

There is a glint to the eye of Lindeman's Leigh, a twinkle somewhere between inspiration and impending doom. You can never be quite sure whether the character is basking the glory of her triumphs, or verging on the edge of tears. It's successfully unnerving     

 Cal McCrystal directs – away from his normal comedy beat, but taking pains to keep it moving and surprising, not least with some brilliantly simple but effective video projections by Mic Gruchy :

 It transports you to a lost time, and a lost individual’s rare, sad, starry career                                                         

 Superb

Perfectly cast as Vivien Leigh, Lindeman delivers a stirring performance as the refined actress dealing with her inner demons.   Compelling

Tour de force

Magnificent
