This is Tom Thum’s first solo show, although touring as part of Australia’s Tom Tom Crew since 2007 has obviously helped him hone his craft to a keen edge. Perhaps a little too sharp in fact, as amidst an orchestra’s worth of instruments and a throng of voices, the one thing that seems to be missing here is the raw energy of a live gig that would make this truly special. There is no denying that Thum has a gift – it is often impossible to believe that one man can produce all the sounds you hear in this show. But although the audience members seem to enjoy themselves, there never feels like a real connection between the crowd and the performer.
