I had really high expectations for this musical, as the reviews I read were all fantastic. And… No wonder, it’s a fantastic show!
The famous couple meets, falls in love and escapes from prison together, and starts their robbery spree. All this while performing pop/rock songs (big bravo to the orchestra!).
I absolutely loved how the show balanced the moods and speed of action: my favourite scene happened in the church where the gospel song mixed with a robbery happening at the same time. Such a unusual mix!
My favourite performances of the night came from: Ako Mitchell (the Preacher) – what a voice, he could tremble the walls with his deep tone! , and my second favourite was definitely Natalie Mcqueen as Blanche Barrow – the most comedic role of the show but with lots of emotions as well.
I sat at one of the side benches in the balcony, and due to unusual seat location had a chance to catch a glimpse of behind the scenes setup of props and lights setup at the side of the stage. Its one of the cheapest seats in the theatre but such a great one for theatre freaks like me 🙂
