From the creative team behind the cult hit The Rocky Horror Show, comes this new musical who dunnit mystery – but what have critics been saying about it?
The Guardian: * Lyn Gardner was extremely disappointed in the show saying: “Not funny and not fun.”
London Theatre.co.uk: ** Dom O’Hanlon commented that: “it’s clear more thought has gone into the overall style of the production than the substance, and despite one incredibly authentic delivery of the title’s promise, the ‘immersive’ aspect didn’t work, making for a fun yet slightly disappointing evening.”
Broadway World: **** “It’s smutty and sexy and there’s plenty of smoking on stage – you could say it’s the Full Monty (groan).”
WhatsOnStage: *** Holly Williams wrote: “The Stripper does what it does with parodic aplomb.”
Musical Theatre Review: **** “The Stripper is tremendous fun.”
Evening Standard: ** Fiona Mountford said: “this musical by Rocky Horror show collaborators Richard Hartley and Richard O’Brien, based on the pulp fiction story by Carter Brown, is liberally and wearyingly misogynistic.”
The Upcoming: ***** “The Stripper’s plot is not entirely predictable from the start and keeps viewers on their toes.”
The Times: * Ann Treneman wrote: “something has gone just a bit wonky here. It’s more film phwoar and frankly it’s so uneven that if it were a pavement, I’d sue.”
The Stripper runs at St James Studio until the 13th August. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://www.stjamestheatre.co.uk/studio/the-stripper/.
