Even though the entire cast gave a great performance collectively, some of my most enjoyable moments came from LJ Parkinson, Paul Hunter, Sophie Melville and Lee Braithwaite. Also, a special mention to Lemuel Ariel Ado who did an excellent job of playing ‘Kid’.
My favourite scene in the show was the water-play between the two lead-lovers Miss Lillian and fugitive Jack Cannon. The creative use of lighting paired with amusing position shifts in-between led to a series of comic stills, lit in a humorous fashion, really making a splash! The scene changes throughout were also notably creative and retained the raised energy levels.
It’s fair to say the stunning, dulcet tones of Bridgette Amofah dazzled a delighted audience and Vinnie Heaven also rocked the microphone. I did enjoy the original songs that were scattered through both acts, however they never felt fully complete. We were treated to musical interjections by the talented cast yet I craved longer songs, more structurally sound, built with even more musical colouring.
