The Pitch (2 stars)

One-man show

comments

This article is from 2007.

As audiences desert the theatre in favour of cinema, could this one-man show provide the answer? A screenwriter has an hour to rewrite his script and plan a pitch before presenting to studio executives. Taking on all the roles, from Catherine Zeta-Jones to Anthony Hopkins, Peter Houghton acts out the Bond-style film, complete with sound effects and bouts of manic fitting. His skill lies in the impressions, but bar his Dustin Hoffman impersonation, even those weren’t that impressive. (Nicola Husband)
