'Not to be missed’ The Guardian on Greg Wohead's The Ted Bundy Project
Jam sessions, patter with a Southern drawl, big dance numbers, and a bit of sweat: this is a re-enactment of Elvis Presley's 1968 Comeback Special. Sort of.
It's an experiment in time drag; wearing another time as drag and dragging another time into the present. What happens if the Comeback comes back? Like a half-remembered dream or two mirrors facing each other or repeating a word so much it loses its meaning.
Comeback Special is a double negative. It’s not the original, but it’s not not.
Greg welcomes Elvis fans, theatre fans and anyone who thinks this peculiar re-enactment might be fun. He certainly does.
'By blurring the line between performers and their public, as well as the past and the present, Wohead creates a special bond' ★★★★ The Times
