The Review: This delightfully daft musical is packed with catchy songs and some great visual gags. The set can’t compete with its lavish West End counterpart, but the performances are top-notch.
Cory English gives a masterclass in musical comedy opposite his fellow ‘producer’ played by Jason Manford, who has a fine singing voice. Phill Jupitus is excellent as the writer of the brilliantly tasteless ‘Springtime for Hitler’, which is staged to flop and bag the producers millions. Louie Spence is splendidly over the top and nails his camp role perfectly.
It’s overlong, the ending a bit wishy-washy, but it’s generally great fun.
The Verdict: Terrific performances all round produce hilarity from the audience.
