Bombastic Rubbish! The Theatres of Frank Matcham

Bombastic Rubbish! The Theatres of Frank Matcham

With no formal training the Victorian architect Frank Matcham designed a staggering number of theatres right across the UK to satisfy the public hunger for the delights of the music hall. Only 24 remain, but these opulent, gilded plaster palaces continue to transport theatregoers of all ages into a hidden world of fantastical glamour, and astonish actors with their unequalled acoustics and perfect sightlines. With contributions from actor Simon Callow and the president of the Frank Matcham Society John Earl, as well as theatre CEOs, technical managers, producers and architects, this colourful, irreverent and playful short film captures the visible and invisible magic of the remarkable spaces designed by Britain's greatest ever theatre architect.

Arguably this should not be a difficult film to review. It is nothing less than brilliant. The story, the direction, the musical score, the casting, the acting, the dialog. Brilliant!!! Just brilliant!
