We are greeted by some familiar tunes throughout, including Time After Time, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps (sung in Spanish) and unquestionably the most well-known song synonymous with Strictly Ballroom, Love Is In The Air. This particular song provided a great moment for the audience to jump out of their seats at the end to sing and dance along during the curtain call, which they did in their multitudes, me included!
Safe to say, this show is a crowd pleaser, full of fun, over the top acting (purposely), some very dodgy Australian accents (again purposely!) and first class dance routines. I can’t say that the majority of the songs are memorable, but as a whole the musical is a joy.
This show was reviewed on the 13th February at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre where it runs until the 18th February 2023. Tickets available here: https://www.grandtheatre.co.uk/whats-on/strictly-ballroom-the-musical/
