Review: Stuart Goldsmith @ Liquid Room

Like I Mean It, this year’s show from Stuart Goldsmith, is fantastically well-crafted and beautifully executed. It’s good, and Goldsmith knows it’s good. One gets the impression that this is the show he’s been trying to write for years. There’s no strong overarching theme, beyond discussion of Goldsmith’s life now that he has a wife and a baby, but the show is no weaker for that. He knows his audience and he’s in complete control. Goldsmith comes out swinging, with an unshakeable confidence that hasn’t always been present in his previous shows. He knows that he can lead the audience wherever he wants them to go, which allows him to have some fun with the pacing and throw in a few gleefully cheeky misleads.
