Critic Reviews for Astrologaster
Astrologaster is an incredibly original and fantastically designed experience that really captures the feel and tone of the Renaissance. From the impeccably researched astrology diagnoses to the infamous postscript of 'coitus after consultation' this is the most accessible way into the world of Simon Forman you could ever hope to find. Whether you mean to or not, you'll certainly learn something about one of the most eccentric characters in Renaissance London – just don't follow any of the medical advice. Trust me, I'm a doctor.
Astrologaster is perhaps the only time you'll ever get to play through a pop-up book version of London's 17th-century medical history. It's an extremely specific pitch, but when it hits, it hits well – and its musical interludes are as delightful and giggle-worthy as any of Shakespeare's best. Sure, it's not going to be to everyone's tastes, but if you're looking for something a little different and you're a fan of the classic British historical sitcom Blackadder, then you could do a lot worse than give this a spin.
