Musical Theatre at its very best!,
Jan 06, 2009
reviewer: from London NW8 8HS
What a glorious show. Simply amazing performances by a hugely talented cast. Although, understanably, Lesley Garrat had top billing Jeremiah James simply had me spellbound. Such an enormous talent; playing the role of Billy Bigelow. equally thrilling was the lovely Alexandra Silber as Julie Jordan.I am amazed that I appear to be the first person to write a review of this production as it received a standing ovation from most of a sadly depleted house. It really deserves to be nominated as the Best Musical of 2008.As for Adam Cooper's choreography...... simply breathtaking. Well done to a fabulous cast ..I WILL BE BACK !!!!

Superb Show,

Lesley Garret was appearing the night I saw this excellent production. So were Jeremiah James and Alexandra Sibert. All three - indeed the whole cast - sang their hearts out. This was an emotional performance both in the acting and the spectating. This was a birthday present from my wife. I shan't forget it. The star rating when I viewed it just before making this entry, was 2.8. What a shame noisy audience members and the absence of a star have reduced the rating from its rightful high star rating. I could watch this again.

A brilliant night. Again!,

reviewer: from London
I've seen this show a few times now at the Savoy, and would absolutely recommend it. Jeremiah James is perfect as Billy, and the entire company have been flawless each time I have seen the show. Granted, the venue isn't the nicest theatre in London, but the show more than makes up for this. See it! Enjoy it!

I have seen the show 3 times and it gets better each time,i agree there are a couple of occasions where the dialogue drags plus the seats are uncomfortable.The excellent cast make up for this and bring the songs to life there are some talented people on that stage.

I went with a small group on Friday 13th February. Like the previous reviewers we were looking forward to hearing Lesley Garrett and we too were let down by her non-appearance. No mention was made before the performance started. Billy Bigelow was outstanding, and the rest of the cast, including the understudy for Nettie were all faultless, however I feel that when a star has been brought in to attract audiences and then does not show it will not attract audiences to repeat the experience. This has happened to my daughter 5 times in the last few years: if contracted to perform surely it should only be illness that causes a star to cancel. As these are not times when most of us are inclined to spend money on a chance West End producers would do well to consider when employing a "star".
