By Alan Menken & Howard Ashman. Redcliffe Musical Theatre (Qld). Redcliffe Entertainment Centre. 19 – 28 July 2013.
This is deliciously gross rock musical entertainment!
It embraces dire poverty, romantic attraction, domestic violence, obsession with new indoor plants, murder, meteoric rise to media success, and redemption. All joyfully, brashly explored in big bold rock numbers, and over-the-top characterisations without a shred of irreverence or guilt. The performance joy is contagious.
