What fun! I really enjoyed it and, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I can sometimes be hard to please, noticing, without hunting for, little faults all over the place. On this occasion I can only complain that a couple of numbers went on too long so I started to look around at the theatre's lovely ceiling... but even that was a pleasure.
The production is a joy... the stage set, created with pages and pages of gold leaf is gorgeous, and the costumes are wonderful, especially the ladies' bias-cut dresses.
Oh, and the singing and dancing and acting and all that stuff was very good aswell!
I think I liked it a lot. It put a huge smile on my face, so thanks to London Theatre Guide for the tickets.
