Lumie Zest Combination Light Therapy - Portable SA&hellip by Lumie
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I regularly have to get up for work at about 4:30am and, although I'm pretty good at getting up, in winter months when it is dark it can be a wrench to rise from my bed.

This particular production plays for laughs and the inflections and facial expressions of the actors enhance this.

Jessie Buckley playing Miranda and Colin Morgan as Ariel play off of Prospero well and generate their own laughs.

The whole cast appear as if they are having fun and the audience also enjoy it despite the obvious rain (judging by the… Read more
