This 1983 show has some great numbers, but its frivolity and insubstantial book focusing on a personal journey rather than the larger political landscape is diminutive rather than powerfully sweeping.
Let’s make one thing clear: this show is epically crazy. Jim Steinman’s rock musical is like nothing else currently on any West End stage. It feels like a rollercoaster ride where things are constantly being thrown at you from every direction: the great, the good, the bad and the ugly sides of rock music are all thrown together to create a show like no other.
When I went to the first West End Live Lounge back in March, I didn’t think it could get any better. I was wrong! Every single performance was absolutely outstanding and I was in awe of each and every performer, it was honestly one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen, full of so much incredible talent and just a wonderful night for a wonderful cause.
Rachel Tucker is a superstar of the stage and is currently on a long awaited tour around the UK before heading to New York for a stint at the iconic 54 Below. Now I knew Rachel’s voice was good from the I’d Do Anything days, videos online and of course from seeing her in Wicked but I was completely blown away when I saw her solo performance last night.
Rachel Tucker is basically theatrical royalty, with a an impressive resume, an incredible voice and an extremely dedicated following. Currently touring the UK and about to start her second stint at the Zedel in London, Rachel was lovely enough to discuss what we can expect in her concerts, how she stays motivated, her dream role and much more.
