[livejournal.com profile] angelofboox went to see a production of The Firework-Maker's Daughter. This is her review.

Last week I went to see the Birmingham Stage Company’s The Firework Maker’s Daughter, at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London. Thinking of going? Read on…

For those who haven’t read the book, the story tells of a girl called Lila, who dreams of becoming a firework-maker like her father. Her hopes are shattered when her father tells her it is no job for a girl. She sets out in secret for Mount Merapi in search of the elusive royal sulphur, facing pirates and supernatural creatures along the way – but must then return to save her imprisoned father with a firework display that must rival the best on earth…

The Birmingham Stage Company’s production delights with a creative set and spectacularly catchy music that you won’t be able to get out of your head. Lila’s magical adventure is brought to life in an explosive and colourful show that will keep you waiting for that final firework display.

Last year, Pullman said about the Birmingham Stage Company’s production:

“What a great cast! What musical talent as well as charm and stage presence! I’m delighted with everything about it.”

The show is on in London at the Bloomsbury Theatre from the 14th of December to the 21st of January. You can get tickets via the Box Office (020 7388 8822) or book online at www.thebloomsbury.com

Live a bit further north and still want to see a production? We’ll have a review of The Firework Maker’s Daughter production on at The Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, Cumbria, (on until the 6th of January) in just a few days…
