From Broadway to Hollywood

★★★☆☆  Hearing impaired:
A few minutes into this concert by The Bohemians Lyric Opera Company at St Cuthbert’s Church I wanted to walk out. But I wanted to take the singers and musicians with me.

Legally Blonde – The Musical

Legally Blonde – The Musical

★★★☆☆ Energetic:
Lacking nothing in sheer relentless drive, the Bohemians’ production of Legally Blonde – The Musical at the King’s has little in the way of subtlety or contrast. As a result, it is great fun but fails to convince completely.
