|London Theatre Workshop Presents Apartment 40C|
Fulham's theatre pulls out all the stops with this new musical, says Penny Flood
With Apartment 40C Ray Rackham has pulled out all the stops, his latest musical production at the little theatre above the Eel Brook pub on New Kings Road is the best yet.
True, everything Ray’s done there has been good, with the first, Ordinary Days up for an "Offie" award, but this is the icing on the cake.
Set somewhere in New York, Apartment 40C has an interesting history which is told in a series of seemingly unrelated but intriguing vignettes.
The protagonists are three couples who move in and out, each with their own story and oblivious to the other two. There’s the very young Katie (Alex Crossley) and Eddie (Alex James) at the start of a relationship; the slightly older married couple, Kate (Lizzie Wofford) and Ed (Drew Weston) facing a life changing event; and the glamorous forty somethings Kathryn (Nova Skipp) and Edward (Peter Gerald), whose relationship has long ago come to an end.
