Magical Mystery Detour

 

Review


Gemma Wilcox plays Sandra, and pretty much everyone and every'thing' else in "Magical Mystery Detour," including her dog, seagulls, her car, and a literal fly on the wall. There was something cinematic about her lovingly-portrayed cast of characters; her movement from character to character was almost always smooth and fully-realized. "Magical Mystery Detour" is an engaging story about a road trip, which functions like a really great road trip: awesome tunes, quirky adventures, funny stories, and colourful characters set against a backdrop of love and loss. The physical journey at play in Wilcox's sweet, heartfelt story about Sandra's trip to honour of her late mother is even more—a metaphorical journey about making it on your own after life's difficult pitfalls.  —Miya Abe

    Gemma Wilcox creates a phantasmagorical live performance seamlessly shifting between characters in an instant – from animals to humans to inanimate objects – creating the illusion of an animated film unfolding inside your mind. If you want a theatrical experience that transcends the confines of a living room drama, come and be swept away by The Magical Mystery Detour.

    Gemma absolutely transforms into her various characters (living and non living) and in doing so sweeps you up into a whole new world on an adventure that you never want to end. She is raw talent. A rare gem (conveniently a pun).

    I know Gemma’s performances and artistry well. This isn’t the only of her wondrous shows I’ve seen, and it won’t be the last. Do yourself a favor—see her at least once. Twice, preferably. Thrice, if you know what’s good for you.

    She’s that excellent.
