Podcast: NarniaWeb Reviews “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” Stage Production

A stage production of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” by the Stratford Festival is currently running in Ontario, Canada, and a group of NarniaWeb forum moderators caught a performance.  Listen to a few of them (Pattertwigs Pal, Meltintalle, and Ryadian) share their thoughts with an envious Glumpuddle.

The production debuted in May and will continue until November. View the official trailer:

    Thanks for the great discussion and review of the play.
    I had seen this in London, England, 15 years ago, and it had things I didn't like. It was great to see a fresh local production which improved on lots of things.
    This production benefitted from being later than the stage shows of Lion King and War Horse, giving wonderful puppets of small characters and exciting superpuppets of large ones. It also played to its audience, while keeping suitable English accents for most people.
    I agree with pretty much everything the podcasters said.

    Is this the same one that they did in London in 2012? The trailer looks very similar, though not entirely the same. If so, I really enjoyed that show – a lot of interesting design production choices.

    I finally had a chance to listen to this podcast! This was a fun episode. It was nice hearing from Meltintalle, Pattertwigs Pal, and Ryadian — it's cool to be able to put a voice to the username! The play sounds like it's a pretty good adaptation. Going by the scenes in the trailer, the visuals are pretty awesome as well. (The Aslan puppet is impressive!) Shame that it's so far away… I'll have to be on the lookout for theater productions closer to home. I've never seen LWW on stage before and it's definitely on my bucket list now.
