Although a little rough around the edges, new fantasy epic Sicarius, which premiered at Maddermarket Theatre, has much promise.
Although a little rough around the edges, Sicarius has much promise.
Michael Stoker as Gavrielle, a 'deadly assassin, ripped from his family as a child', conveyed both heartless killer and sympathetic hero, his struggles as he begins to question everything he's ever known, efficiently communicated.
The music was impressive: time and again I marvelled at the sheer talent involved in composing an entire musical, although sometimes the delivery didn't quite hit the mark.
It also didn't help that the sound system cut out every so often and threatened to throw everyone off. However, this was counterbalanced by the female members of the cast, who were collectively and by far the best thing about the performance - most notably, Chloe Hunter as Estella and Laura Marvell-James who delivered some incredibly powerful vocals.
