Sheffield. Jamie is bullied on his council estate, just for being different. All
that changes in the spotlight...
Dan Gillespie Sells / Tom MacRae musical, transfers from hit Sheffield Crucible
Not available. Professional reviewers are all in the 4 and 5 star zone, the
songs are considered as strong and sassy as the performances, and the main
complaints seem to be that it takes a little while to get going and that the
story (based on a real documentary) lacks some dramatic strength. A boy wanting
to wear a dress to a school prom isn't sufficient for some, it seems.
McCrea in the title role is praised by all, with his friend Pritti (Lucie
Shorthouse), mother (Josie Walker) and mentor Phil Nichol also garnering much
recognition. Director Jonathan Butterell and choreographer Kate Prince are also
noted for light touch and wit, bringing the emotion in the music to the fore
without swamping the whole affair.
A new British musical to savour, seems to
be the verdict.
