Sorry for the delay in posting, but my mind has been a fog thanks to antihistamine following a few insect bites. (You can read about that here)
Having seen this before when I was still at school it was great to see how they have taken the production into the modern world. One such highlight being the butler being played by one of the younger female members of the company.
Sheridan Smith was amazing and still has her quirky humour which made the production a bit less sterile than the subject matter can be.
Plenty of high energy dance numbers thrown into including a can-can playing on the mishearing of “Canaan”. Still not sure if the end of Act One and “Go Go Joseph” or the “Mega Mix” at the end is my favourite part of the show. Maybe this is my excuse to go again…
A very impressive custom lift / trap door setup is used in the centre of the stage, didn’t notice the sound or lighting much otherwise which to me implies it was all done well. If you’re not tall front row of the Grand Circle is a good place to sit in this theatre and at only £15 a ticket, can’t quite believe my luck.
