REVIEW: Matthew Bourne’s Early Adventures, York Theatre Royal

I first became a fan of Matthew Bourne’s work after being bowled over by his choreography, sense of humour, strong story line and powerful imagery, in what is sure to become a cult ballet Edward Scissorhands. If you think ballet’s not for you, then I urge you to at least try to attend one of his ballets – he’s not afraid to do his own thing, with a clear Bourne Identity.
