I really enjoyed this show. I wasn't quite sure what to expect as I've only ever
seen the film with Liza Minelli in it. However, although that's a classic, I really
rate the musical version!
The cast in this production did an excellent job. The sound was great, the costumes
at times hilarious yet all fitted into the 1980's period that the director had set
it in. Performances by the experienced cast of local performers really brought this
show to life. The many gags had me regularly in stitches, the more sombre moments
had me truly engrossed in the action and the upbeat song and dance numbers had me
tapping my foot.
The tap dancing was excellent. I overheard another member of the audience saying
that none of the cast had ever tapped before doing this show, yet they all looked
like they'd been doing it for years! The venue 'Shush' is relatively new but suited
the show well. Being able to take alcoholic drinks to enjoy during the performance
was really good.
All in all a fantastic evening, well worth the money. I think I may go again as I
haven't seen such a good local show in a long time.
