REVIEW: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat starring Keith Jack, Hamilton Town House 6th May 2011

               

This was playing 5 minutes walk from my front door so there wasn’t really any chance I was going to pass up the opportunity to see a musical that convenient!

 It stars Keith Jack, the 22-year-old Scot was a finalist in Any Dream Will Do, the BBC show to find a new star to play Joseph on the West End stage, but lost out to Lee Mead.  Jack has finally got his hands on Joseph’s technicolour dream coat and has said “It is strange, though, to think I will finally be doing Joseph. I look back on Any Dream Will Do now and I don’t think I was ready for it all then. I feel like in the two or three years that have gone by I have really grown up and am more prepared to take on a lead like Joseph now – and I know all the songs.”

 By sheer accident rather than design I’ve got front row seats for this.

 So the (re-) view from the front row is… fabulous. In the confines of a pretty small stage this was just joyous and totally unexpected. Well acted with energy and sparkle from a fantastic cast. The audience’s hands and throats were raw from applauding and singing. If this is touring near you I urge you to go. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

REVIEW: Love Never Dies at the Adelphi Theatre London 13th October 2010

Well he’s back as a Coney Island impresario with a full quota of freaks and sideshows and despite the pundits being less than kind – I must say I loved this. The music was a joy and just like “Phantom” it’s sumptuously staged and full of glorious visual tricks and feasts for the eyes.
