Ambition (Froglet Productions Ltd)
By John Sampson | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2016
‘Ambition’ represents a great opportunity to inventively explore how we can resurrect our forgotten childhood dreams, but regrettably it’s an opportunity missed. Instead what we get is a half-baked motivational lecture, akin to something that you’d hear at a mundane business conference. Its anecdotal structure looks at encounters with celebrities such as Myleene Klass and Marco Pierre White to illuminate the path to success, but merely becomes an exercise in name-dropping for performer Rachel Bridge. Bridge’s ten step structure to success all gets rather lost in monotonous melee of samey stories, quips and cliches. Unfortunately, it is a show that fails to approach its subject with any of the ambitious thinking that its title might suggest.
