THE BOOK CLUB! Reviews (Melbourne Season, July 2016)

Herald Sun

Theatre Press
“Amanda Muggleton
 is completely at ease with the demands of this production which, in her case, is portraying every single character – male and female – and relying on nothing but her spectacular facial expressions, body language and voice for differentiation. Her comedy timing and physicality is spot on and while she plays these characters as “big”, Muggleton still manages to retain an honesty and authenticity to them all.”

Australian Stage
“As Deborah finds herself living out a long-held fantasy, Muggleton throws herself with total abandon – and much hilarity – into the physically explicit storyline, but also offers a masterclass in minimalism, expressing hugely complicated emotions with the most economical and simple of gestures. One can only imagine how much fun Muggleton had working through the story with director Nadia Tass.”

They have taken a script which is little more than a collection of old gags and shtick, worthy of a Ray Cooney play, and turned it into a theatrical piece full of whimsy and poignant moments.”
