Review – Oklahoma!

✭✭✭✭✩ Long but Strong:
It’s seventy years since Oklahoma! first took to the Broadway stage, with its gorgeous, downbeat opening of Oh What a Beautiful Morning, sung by cowboy Curly to the butter-churning Aunt Eller.

Æ Musical Review – Fiddler on the Roof

Æ Musical Review – Fiddler on the Roof

★★★★☆

There is plenty of tradition and lots of great singing in Southern Light Opera’s robust production of Fiddler on the Roof. It is a show which not only hits the marks bang on but which makes room for a big, brave ending.
