MASTERCLASS! First Reviews for ‘Masterclass’

Amanda Muggleton outstanding in portrait of a flawed diva, writes William Yeoman. “The passages where Muggleton inhabits the character of Onassis are frightening. And unprintable…”  “it is in Muggleton’s interactions with her fellow cast members that we see the full range of Callas’ character and Muggleton’s acting skills on display…”  “…brilliantly performed.” THE WEST AUSTRALIAN (REVIEW)

“While much of Callas’ banter in comedic and cutting, the play takes turns into darker corners of her life when she recounts different men who have loomed over her. While Muggleton is sensational in her portrayal of Callas, it’s when she morphs into Aristotle Onassis that she really shows off her dramatic skills.” OUT IN PERTH (REVIEW)

“She is truly wonderful to watch. If you have even a smidgeon of interest in opera, Masterclass is unmissable. If you enjoy seeing an actor at the height of her considerable powers, the same applies. ” SEESAW MAGAZINE (REVIEW)

“(She) remains one of our most generous and formidable stage presences. So it’s a sort of double act, Callas and Muggleton, and the actor displays her great gifts, an ability to both capture a character, to show us its height and depth.” FROM THE TURNSTILES (REVIEW)
