I saw this a week ago without knowing anything about it. I hadn't seen the film (I didn't even know it was a film), but like Strictly Come Dancing and musicals and had seen the good reviews on here so thought I'd give it a go. I didn't think I was going to get a ticket as it was sold out when I checked, but then a single seat appeared the night before so I snapped it up. I'm glad I did as I enjoyed it. I loved the costumes, and one scene in particular reminded me of Dirty Dancing (but there is a lot more dancing in this show - and the leads sing). I thought it ended quite suddenly though. It was a fun afternoon out, and I do like the venue.
Someday, someone will say, "All the world's a stage". But my world has always been a stage. And fate has left me lonesome tonight, and every night. I need to find true love, or they can bring the curtain down.
Absolutely loved the final performance of this last night, and even got taken up on stage to dance with the ladies. It's beautifully staged, and flows, with a handsome, sexy cast. Very slick, and just the right side of caricature. The ending is distinctly rushed though, and not the climatic moment it should be. But a total joy. Let's hope when the show comes back from Canada that there is room for it in London.
So pleased that this has done well. It wasn't perfect but it was a great night out. I agree about the ending - but with a little tweaking it could be fantastic. Hope theres a life for this show after Canada.
