Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown Javeenbah Theatre Company, Nerang, Gold Coast. Director: Trevor Love. Sept 16 – Oct 1, 2016
This production has been stripped down to the bare essentials which, in a way, has taken the gloss off what could be a great experience.
I could not understand what it was all about until I got home and had time to read the comment on each song. Had these preceded each item as surtitles or commentary, with perhaps the use of a hat, scarf or prop it would have enhanced the experience of the production.
With the Musical Direction in the capable hands of Javeenbah Stalwart, Rachel Love, the show had pace but that alone was not sufficient to entertain.
