THE GO BETWEEN (musical)
Ends 15th October 2016.
The hot Norfolk summer of 1900 becomes even hotter when schoolboys Leo and
Marcus become go-betweens in the romantic affairs of posh Marian and farmer Ted.
Years later, elderly Leo's memories awake...
Michael Crawford stars in this Taylor and Wood musical based on the L.P. Hartle
Not available. Literally a bit too dark (low lighting levels) and sombre for
some reviewers. The music and lyric are noted for quality, if not lightness, and
the direction elegant. The problem is that the weight of dramatic "approaching
menace" rather bogs down the speed of the whole thing. Almost a drama too deep
to require music, it divides the professionals into those who feel it a brave
and often successful effort, and those feeling the whole concept is sunk by its
storyline and execution.
All are certain, however, that Mr Crawford does
everything Mr Crawford is known for to keep the show moving - and succeeds. His
young co-star also receives mention for a good performance, and the solo pianist
gets a great deal of praise.
A curio for the summer, which should be appreciated by fans of the original
novel and the one and only star alike, seems to be the verdict.
