Met kelper last night for ON THE TOWN. I dunno, I'm not much of a 'musicals' fan, although there are exceptions,(usually darker or loonier stuff like SWEENEY TODD, LES MES, ROCKY HORROR...) If you're into the 'classic' formula, with lots of showbizzy dance numbers,ingratiating grinning, etc. this would probably hit the spot nicely.
The skill and enthusiasm of the huge cast couldn't be faulted, with Rodney Clarke and Andrew Shore particularly good.I agreed with Fiona that the production (Jude Kelly),effects, and choreography (Stephen Mear)were fabulous. It's quite understandable that it was a sellout last time ENO ran it.
I was having a very bad hurtykneee day, as well, and for some reason, I just couldn't get anywhere near comfortable in the squeezy chair. I was owing and wriggling all through it. The woman on my right who kept making cringey comments and 'ahhhh' noises didn't help, either.
I could barely walk to the bus stop afterwards, with my creaky clicking squished up old overburdened bones, and then had to wait about eighty years for the bus, as there was a major traffic jam, apparently caused by a very minor resurfacing event going on in Whitehall. Grumble.
I had a very weird dream about going around singing in churches with Tommy Makem.
