Time Travellers Wife
Apollo Theatre - West End
(Review Complete)

SYNOPSIS:
The Time Traveller’s Wife is a beautiful love story that transcends time itself. Clare, an artist, and her time travelling husband, Henry, try to cope with the difficulties presented by Henry’s disappearances as he is dragged through time on many adventures.
 
Their family life is put under immense pressure but Clare won’t allow Henry’s episodes to tear them apart.

REVIEW:
Having read and enjoyed The Time Traveller’s Wife, I wasn’t sure how it would translate onto the stage. So often adaptations of books end up leaving out bits that are my favourite or some of the more subtle plot hints. But I didn’t need to worry
 
This show was beautiful! And the music, although I didn’t find it overly memorable, worked very well within the context of the show. In this modern era of stage setting, the projected scenery allowed the show to be staged with plenty of magic. Henry disappeared and reappeared without the audience seeing quite how and locations changed seamlessly from one place to another
 
David Hunter played the time travelling Henry and I loved his portrayal! The lack of control he has over the time travelling becomes more testing as his relationship with Clare progresses and Clare, played beautifully by Joanna Woodward, is determined to make the relationship work against all the odds.
 
However, my favourite character in the whole show has to be Gomez, played by the excellent Tim Mahendran. He was funny and stylish and he and Charisse, played by Hibachi Elchikhe, were excellent foils for Henry and Clare.
 
There were many other lovely cameo characters; Alwyne Taylor playing the Librarian, Ross Dawes as Henry’s Dad and Helena Pipe as Dr Kendrick all spring to mind.
 
Altogether this was a most enjoyable evening. The story is beautiful and the end of the show will bring tears to many eyes. If you have a romantic bone in your body, you will really enjoy this classic adaptation of a book that I love.
