Nowhere near enough charm in this Sweet Charity for my liking. Josie Rourke’s farewell to the Donmar Warehouse is grey rather than silver.
The Donmar Warehouse has announced further casting for artistic director Josie Rourke’s farewell production Sweet Charity. Joining previously announced cast members Anne-Marie Duff as Charity and Arthur Darvill as Oscar will be Lizzy Connolly, Lauren Drew, Jo Eaton-Kent, Will Haswell, Charlotte Jaconelli, Stephen Kennedy, Debbie Kurup, Martin Marquez, Ryan Reid, Amy Ellen Richardson, Danielle Steers and Shaq Taylor. The musical will run from 6 April to 8 June 2019 (press night is 17 April).
As Bill Buckhurst’s production of Sweet Charity takes the show squarely back to its 1960s origins with Rebecca Trehearn in the lead, the show delivers an exhilarating if somewhat brutal comment on humanity that proves disarmingly timeless.
Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company has confirmed the full cast for its forthcoming production of Sweet Charity – its first musical production since 2006 (31 August to 22 September 2018, press night is 5 September).
The entire ensemble of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical gives fantastic performances and the show is thoroughly enjoyable. I had high expectations, all of which were met for a fun-filled night out at the theatre.
Carole King rightly occupies a place in the pantheon of great American songwriters and this lively production of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is a fitting tribute to her musical legacy.
Miss Beautiful at your peril, the reason it was such a success in the West End couldn’t be clearer and I for one feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to have caught this show at one of my local theatres.
Whether you think you’re a fan of Carole King or not, you’re sure to recognise many of the hits in Beautiful and leave feeling elated, with a new sense of love and appreciation for the songwriting industry.
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is a masterclass in singer/songwriting skills, showcased through wonderful music that really brightens up a cold winter’s evening.
