Warning: includes bad puns and unnecessary footnotes.
★★★★★ Three Weeks
“Burrows does a fantastic job of navigating both the super-fan and the novice through the story of Pratchett’s life, work and legacy. He also explores the impact of good storytelling, and how Pratchett – as a genius storyteller – used that to good effect. As does Burrows in this show.”
★★★★★ Starburst Magazine
“Funny, clever and profound, The Magic of Terry Pratchett is a strong and intelligent show for fans of fantasy, puns and good stories. Unmissable.”
★★★★★ (4.8) Edinburgh Reviews
“The Magic of Terry Pratchett is a slam dunk must for any reader of Pratchett. Furthermore, you can and should bring your non-Pratchett-savvy friends. The show is surprisingly poignant, with difficult subjects tackled with sensitivity and controversial choices made for, I think, the better.”
★★★★ Broadway Baby
“The Magic of Terry Pratchett is a heartfelt tribute to one of the greatest storytellers in history, that captures the very essence of this literary icon, leaving us in a state of awe and gratitude for his extraordinary contributions to storytelling. Whether a dedicated fan of Terry Pratchett's works or someone newly discovering his brilliance, brace yourself to be enchanted, amused, and inspired by the life and legacy of this remarkable author.”
“We leave the Gilded Balloon, even more determined than ever to continue to speak the name of Terry Pratchett, and do as he did – tell stories [not necessarily 100% true, but GOOD stories], choose how we want to tell our own stories, and keep Terry Pratchett the man and the author alive in our minds and our hearts.”
