The Evening Standard

Fiona Mountford

Catwalk Confidential is something of a misnomer. Catwalk Predictable would be more fitting a title for this nonetheless personable one-woman show... Peterson’s account of her journey from Miami Beach via New York to the catwalks of Paris and 10 heady years at the top boasts dry humour and some pleasing set-piece scenes but not a huge amount of depth.

It’s all rather impressive, as Peterson jumps between different characters... It’s also overmanicured. The director, Tony Abatemarco, allows scarcely a phrase to be uttered without a lighting change, a new posture from Peterson, a puff of dry ice, a photo or film on one the three screens or a stab of music... Catwalk Confidential is neatly done. But I’d trade a lot of its elegance and poise for a few moments of Peterson trusting her audience to let them see her unadorned.

You write down everything that has happened. You learn every word. You come to Edinburgh and deliver it clearly and passionlessly. You tell us nothing surprising or insightful. Somebody decides that after Edinburgh they will transfer your show to the Arts Theatre in London. Your name is Robyn Peterson. You like talking about yourself.
