Ends 1st November
Biography of 1940’s Argentinean Dictator’s wife.
She begs the crowd not to cry for her; but when she dies young, they
ignore her - and do!
The Rice / Lloyd Webber musical of 1978 that has been out on tour is brought
in to London for a short season. Marti Pellow is Che, Madalena Alberto
takes the title role.
Previews from 8th November, opens 12th November 2014. Ends 3rd January
Bob and Phil team up with Betty and Judy to put on a show that
will save their old Army General's hotel from financial ruin.
Aled Jones, Tom Chambers, Wendi Peters, Graham Cole, Rachel Stanley
and Louise Bowden head the cast of this movie to stage adaptation.
Not available. Reports all praise the design and fluid direction, but question
some of the central performances. Marti Pellow as Che in particular gets praise
for his grittiness but fails for many due to a lack of technical musical theatre
skill required to carry off the complexity of the part. His Eva, Madalena
Alberto is considered technically excellent, yet left many reviewers cold thanks
to the distance with which she plays the role. Most forgive her as her final
scenes do find the emotional target.
Also noted are Ben Forster's lively
Magaldi and Matthew Cammelle's suitably tough Perón. Sarah McNicholas, the
discarded mistress, makes the most of her lovely number "Another Suitcase in
Another Hall" too.
The show itself proves to be tougher than even the greatest shortcomings, and
most professional reviewers agree that at the very least it's an adequate
evening that leaves audiences satisfied enough.
