The Review: It’s impossible to recreate the atmosphere of a theatrical show for DVD but this recording succeeds in many other ways. This is my third viewing of the show (twice before on the West End stage) and I still consider it to be a near-perfect musical. It’s funny, moving, gritty (lots of strong language) and very well staged. The cast on this recording are top-notch, Elliott Hanna and Ruthie Henshall shining as Billy and his dance teacher.
If you can, see the stage show. But if not, this recording does a damn good job of bringing theatre to your living room.
The Verdict: Toe-tappingly brilliant
