The Wedding Singer

The Wedding Singer

★★★★☆ Hilariously entertaining:

It’s all big hair and eighties music as The Bohemians take us back to 1985 in their annual trip to the King’s with The Wedding Singer, playing until Saturday.

Popstars The 90s Musical

Popstars The 90s Musical

★★★★☆ Well risen:

Light in substance and heavy on the cheese, Allegro’s production of Popstars the 90s Musical which is at the Church Hill Theatre to Saturday feels more like a soufflé than a 90s jukebox musical.

Footloose

Footloose

★★★☆☆    Nostalgic:

There are some decidedly impressive production numbers in the Bohemians’ production of Footloose at the King’s. Add in some excellent singing and you have a show that will please a lot of people with fond memories of the 1980s.

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

★★★☆☆ Codpiece rock-out:

Big and silly, much like the hair, Allegro’s production of retro Eighties soft-rock musical Rock of Ages at the Church Hill knows how to hit the highs with ease.

From Broadway to Hollywood

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.

Jekyll & Hyde

Jekyll & Hyde

★★★☆☆ Split decision:
Splendidly sung and with some excellent dancing, EUSOG’s Jekyll & Hyde – The Musical is a little deficient in both thrills and laughs.

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.

A Bohemians’ Rhapsody

A Bohemians’ Rhapsody

★★★☆☆ Tunefully diverse:
Tuneful, varied and unfussily melodic, A Bohemians’ Rhapsody is a thoroughly satisfactory evening out.
