We have visited this theatre on many occasions, over the last couple of years, and I have also reviewed it on Tripadvisor in the past. It is a great old building with lots of character, the red and gold decor just add to the overall ambiance. Of course the toilet facilities etc could be better, but that's what you get from such an old theatre. For us we thoroughly enjoy this place, it's what theatre is all about.
EVITA - what a show. This is our third time of seeing it. Our first occasion was in London. The cast was the fabulous Elaine Page, David Essex and Joss Ackland - yes it was many years ago, but the memories last. Yesterday's show was superb, it is the second time we have seen it with the current cast. The actor playing Evita is simply tremendous, as is the actor who plays Peron, his facial expressions are excellent. The relationship between them feels strong and true. The rest of the cast do a very good job indeed. The only fly in the ointment is Marti Pellow, I said in my last review that I thought that he was the weakest link, this has not changed, granted he has improved since last time, but I still feel that he is miscast.
This is a truly great show, one not to be missed. Will we see it a fourth time? "You Betcha ".
