REVIEW: Yarico, London Theatre Workshop ✭✭✭

Yarico at the London Theatre Workshop

The tale of Yarico has a potency and universality that makes it almost perfect subject matter for treatment as a musical or opera. What makes the entire experience worth seeing and savouring is the terrific central turn from Liberty Buckland as Yarico. Buckland has a wonderful voice, full of colour and expression, and she knows precisely how to use it to best effect. Alex Spinney has an excellent, assured voice, light and agile, and he certainly has no difficulty playing the attractive leading man.
