Tom Holland wows crowds more than critics in Romeo and Juliet

Elsewhere, the Independent’s Tim Bano, external went further and said Holland’s performance “falls flat”.

“On comes Holland, a camera following him from backstage. He’s tearful, morose, muttering. He’s a very sad boy in a tight white vest,” Bano wrote.

Footage shot by on-stage cameras, shown on a big screen, has become a hallmark Lloyd’s productions, as has what Bano described as “industrial chic”.

“Or it was chic the first time Lloyd did it, but now it just looks like a fetish for ventilation ducts.”

He added: “If it had ended at the interval, it would have been brilliant. Instead, it becomes a thing of diminishing returns…

“As for the ending, well, it’s a bit of a letdown. They die, but theatrically: earpieces out, eyes closed, sitting on the front of the stage like bouncers having a nap after a long shift at a warehouse rave.”
