Presse : "Kaisa Hammerlund is simply stunning as Ludmilla, encompassing perfectly all complexities of this torn woman" Jennifer Reischel, Fringe Review

‎"It is quite astounding to see a small (extremely well conducted) orchestra residing near the ceiling above the action" Jennifer Reischel, Fringe Review

‎"A startlingly honest and wonderfully expressive musical version of a lost art form with a haunting score, where not their conversation but the actors' facial expressions and gesturing become a focal point in understanding their feelings and journey." Jennifer Reischel, Fringe Review

‎"This is the most delightfully unusual musical to see at the Finborough.... It is ingeniously designed with the tiny flat complete and in character while the string musicians perform the music with a sense of delightfully warm tones on the roof of the flat... It is a completely jelled production....a gem that sparkles and brings a wit with compassion. Don't miss it." Blanche Marvin, London Theatre Reviews

‎"as pleasant added bonuses we get the recorded voice of Penelope Keith reading some of the film's ironic between-scenes commentary, and a delightful little toy train." Gerald Berkowitz, London Theatre Guide

‎"Under the direction of Luke Sheppard and the musical direction of Candida Caldicot, Alistair Parker (husband), Kaisa Hammarlund (wife) and Alistair Brookshaw (boarder) sing beautifully and capture all the quiet humour of the story" Gerald Berkowitz, London Theatre Guide

‎"There is a nicely witty edge to a song in which the woman realises that both she and the USSR government have bad luck in choosing their men, and a melodic trio in which the three sing of their separate dreams is lovely and satisfyingly complex in a Sondheimish way, recalling the 'Soon/Now/Later' trio in A Little Night Music while retaining its own individual sound." Gerald Berkowitz, London Theatre Guide

‎"A shower of five stars for all: the performers, the creative team, and especially to Luke Sheppard, who directs with a fine-tuned sensitivity and an excellence that belies his years. Very impressive: if the run doesn't sell out, I'll eat my shapka." Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

‎"It is impossible to take one's eyes off Kaisa Hammarlund - her performance and singing are captivating, commanding." Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

‎"The scene at the movies was so focused I couldn't resist turning my head in case more magic was taking place behind me. But the magic was in front of me." Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

‎"In pale commedia dell'arte faces and stylised movements the performers negotiate the tiny space deftly (credit to movement director Lucy Cullingford)." Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

‎"The set is fabulous in its realism, replicated almost exactly, with its Stalin calendar and her photo on the wall. David Woodhead has squeezed in all the furniture and the Bolshoi pediment... Bulgakov's Professor Woland must have taken over the Finborough, for how else to explain that all fits with room to spare for an audience. Where there's a will..." Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

‎"Her music (for violin, viola, cello, and piano/conductor) has Russian harmonies, his book and libretto gently mock faux Trotsky, Stalin and Marxist texts, delivered by Penelope Keith's voiceover announcer in exquisitely sardonic tones." Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide


‎"whether you are a fan of Soviet satire and Soviet films of the 1920s or not matters not a bit to delight in Polly Pen and Laurence Klavan's faithful but oh so witty rendering of Abram Room's 1927 silent movie" Vera Liber, British Theatre Guide

Commentaires : First presented on the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2008, where the show developed a cult following with its kitsch pastiche and camp pun-filled dialogue. From the very opening with the company in purple and orange uniforms tap-dancing their way through the Safety Procedures, it was clear the reaction would be split – those who would scream along with the camp, and those who would make for the nearest emergency exit. The critics were neatly divided.
Presse : "Director/choreographer Luke Sheppard makes clever use of every inch of the theatre's intimate space and drives the action along at the perfect pace throughout. Everything about his production is slick, smooth and sophisticated."  Broadway World

"Jet Set Go! is one of those rare, unexpected delights that enliven any Fringe... a production that's warm, funny and wonderfully scored... Without a note or step out of place" * * * * The Scotsman

"Director Luke Sheppard and musical director Candida Caldicot have done a superb job... absolutely air- and watertight choreography... Take Note Theatre have an absolute winner on their hands, and if you fancy a good night out and love musicals this one’s a must-see." Extra Extra
