Brief Encounter podcast and scenes from opening night in San Francisco

Here's a brief podcast on the show with some additional thoughts.

Kneehigh Theatre’s acclaimed production of Brief Encounter makes use of beautiful film projections: Alec (Milo Twomey) has a vision of Laura (Hannah Yelland). Photograph by Steve Tanner.

It’s official: Brief Encounter at the A.C.T. is a smash hit. In the words of Austin Powers… “yeah, Baby!”

Clint and Loni gave it 5 out of 5 stars (review), and others have been glowing too with their praise for the British production from Kneehigh Theatre. Clint says it was the first time he’s ever been served food (cucumber sandwich) by an actor!

Here’s a brief podcast on the show with some additional thoughts. Plus a few photos from the ACT red carpet on Geary Street, always and electric atmosphere. PS- it turns out our Brief Encounter is somewhat less brief, as the show has been extended by a week. Letting go is hard to do. Podcast, videos, photos after the break.
