Edward Scissorhands @ Sadler’s Wells…

Last Saturday night Stuart, Debbie, Shelley and I went to see Matthew Bourne’s ballet Edward Scissorhands at the Sadler’s Wells in London glitzy Angel. 
Devised, directed and choreographed by infant terrible Bourne and based on the classic Tim Burton film it’s a witty, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world. The show features the hauntingly beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies. 
In a castle high on a hill lives Edward; a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When his creator dies he is left alone and unfinished with only scissors for hands until a kindly townswoman invites him to live with her suburban family. 
Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?
Short answer. No. 😂
Well, it is Tim Burton!
