razzmatazz, sequins, 1930’s nostalgia and a tap-dancing extravaganza
Did I enjoy this show?
Did I E N J O Y this show?
The Stars Were Out, the Broadway Lullaby floated from the stage and the dancers enthralled us on a footlight-sparkling staircase – thundering rhythmic tap routines – throughout the performance.
It was brilliant. I want to go again. I must – I must!
The story is told in full here (thanks Wikipedia) and here (current touring company)! But words fail to capture the breath-taking tap dancing and heart-stopping lyrics & melodies that filled me with awe and excitement.
If you want a taste, then click here for a different performance, by a larger company – but at the Mayflower Theatre, in Southampton earlier in the week, the story came to life and I loved every single minute. The 2nd Act was totally amazing – scenery, costumes, songs and dance routines – I’ll remember it for ever.
Were the stars out last night? Well, they are every night, wherever you are, if you go to see this performance!
