What I liked

From the story, to the acting, to the staging, to the originality… Ladies in Waiting is an enjoyable piece of theatre and one not to be missed this Fringe. Every actor on stage is well cast and skillful. Great patience and grace is exhibited throughout the performance (you’ll have to see the show to understand what I mean). Each woman brought lovely elements to their respective roles. I enjoyed each passing moment, even if Henry didn’t…

What I didn't like

Putting something here, because I think I have to in order for this review to be properly submitted.

My overall impression

This show is an absolutely MUST SEE. Henry VIII is on trial in purgatory, and his jury is comprised of his many wives… Offering a new perspective for each of the women held to the will of the second Tudor, this show is accessible to History buffs and not-so-muchs. Moves quickly, but isn’t rushed.
