Long term readers will know I am a fan of theatre company Act/React and their work so it may not come as a surprise to find that I went to see their latest at Wonderland Festival 2019 – Die Hard: The Movie, The Play which followed on from seeing their other work Love/Hate Actually, Kiss of the Vampire Squid, Titanic: The Movie, The Play.
It may also come as no surprise given the strength of the talent involved and the premise of recreating Die Hard as live meta theatre that I enjoyed the show very much following on from taking in the wonderfully quirky and heartfelt Awesome Ocean Party earlier that evening.

I was delighted to review both shows for Scenestr magazine who I was on assignment with for the third time at Wonderland Festival and there were more shows to come.

What great photos. Cool stuff all round. My favourite Christmas movie
Thanks Alex, theres a slight wink to that in the show which i appreciated.
I find it hard to imagine that film done as improvisation on a small scale. But your review made the idea come alive.
Best wishes, Pete.
I remember wondering about that when I saw their Titanic show and I must say they do a great job. They also have one of Speed which I plan to see. I’m glad my review did it’s job. Best wishes Pete.
Nice review, Lloyd on Scenstr. Wow. A play version. I’d be interested! It’s one of my favorite Christmas movies.
Thanks Cindy, mine too and thus show was fun. Remember it’s not Christmas until Hans Gruber falls off the Nakatomi Plaza. 🙂
Nice review as always. Lloyd. Interesting idea. I hope they kept Gene Autry’s song.
Forgive me Don but which song specifically?
Here Comes Santa Clause.
There were some songs playing as we entered the office Christmas party so maybe. 🙂
Yes, an excellent review. Tells it like it is, and gives the reader the facts necessary to decide if they want to see it or not.
Thank you John, I’m glad you liked.
