RIP IT UP (musical)
Ends 2nd June 2019.
A cast of dancers, singers and musicians celebrate the 1960s. Music ranging
from the Beatles and Burt Bacharach to The Who, plus spectacular screen
footage offer a taste of the decade which transformed the 20th century.
Not available. Professional reviewers are unimpressed. Sure, it's got a
bright set and lights, and a cast that can move - Jill Marie Cooper can also
sing - but that's about all. Reviewers opine that it feels longer than the
decade itself, the mixture of songs, video and interviews losing their grip
around half way through the first half, with more than 90 minutes to go. If all
you want is some songs performed live, and can stand the noise the audience is
required to make, this is fine, but one review points out you'd be better off
using YouTube, while another thinks the Neanderthal sexual politics on display
are either a plus or minus depending on your predilections.
Pretty much what
you'd expect from this kind of devised entertainment, hovering around the 2 or 3
star mark for actual theatregoers who expect more, seems to be the verdict.
