Bonny Prince Charlie tale let down by performance
This article is from 2011.
Nabokov Theatre’s Young Pretender starts off in excellent form with witty dialogue and a fast-paced breathless delivery, portraying a naïve Bonny Prince Charlie holding on to idealism while on the cusp of failure. Even with well-written material and a talented cast, the production is unfortunately let down by a performance that fails to engage the audience, and ends up seeming like an exercise in dramatic parrying.
