An ace hamster-wheel set but the show itself is run-of-the-mill

The Mill: 'an excellent corporate teamwork video let loose in too large a theatre opportunity'Nik Mackey
Call me old-fashioned, but when a bunch of people have trained in circus and French mime theatre, I’m expecting to be astonished, thoroughly surprised, and occasionally to feel the sweat breaking out on my palms. Can one enjoy circus skills without fear and awe being supplied? The aerialist theatre troupe Ockham’s Razor provide a sensational hamster-wheel set for their new show, The Mill, powered by human hamsters, but don’t serve up physical jinks of matching sensationalism. I grew up before the health and safety age killed off danger, and I like my acrobatics razor-sharp and daredevil.
