There are many moments where the audience explodes with laughter over a story that we can see going horribly wrong, before Beuvink is even finished telling the story. The tensions she builds up to these crucial big reveal moments, which turn out often much worse than we were imagining, has us sitting on the edge of our seats and hanging onto every word.
Using us as perhaps another form of her experimental ‘Airplane Therapy’ treatment, we are treated to a walk down memory lane in the various crises that Beuvink has struck in her life. She entreats us to do the opposite of her father's advice and follow our dreams, giving us her hot tips on life to close the show.
She warns you at the beginning that the show is not about helping us to feel better, it’s about her own personal Quarter-Life Crisis, however the connections made in the room and the camaraderie of everyone who has ‘been there’ made the show a joy to attend. Highly recommend going to see this show, if only to leave it thinking “Well at least I’ve never done that!”.
Louise Beuvink’s show Quarter-Life Crisis is on at Cavern Club from 03 May 2016 to 07 May 2016 at 8.30pm
