This Saturday the first episode of 'Let It Shine' will air. It's supposed to be another 'I'd Do Anything', 'Any Dream Will Do' kind of musical theatre casting show. This time with Gary Barlow as the ALW figure. I'm very excited about this because I used to love these shows where talented musical theatre performers performed a bunch of theatre songs every week in the hope of getting the lead in a West End musical. Some great talents got their real start through these shows. For example Rachel Tucker and Samantha Barks got their real start through "I'd Do Anything".
I thought it would be great to have a thread where we can discuss everything that happens on this show in the coming weeks.
I'm intrigued by this - I enjoyed I'd Do Anything (and in fact Rachel and Sam were my favourites the whole way through!), but wasn't a huge fan of the Joseph or Maria ones. I'm going to give this one a chance though.
Noting like the ALW ones they used t have. It is trying to be different but is really not that good. It is just every talent show. It is not musical theatre enough for me and the rat singer was a okay. It is too pop music and just ehh.
