It’s frustrating when people don’t subscribe to your point of view, but you’ve just got to deal with it. Love the things you love and support them to the hilt, just draw the line at attacking people for being different.
Ruthless! The Musical has been impressively cast, with a company whose voices and performances are well suited to the style.
The musical will be best savoured with a large gin alongside a generous pinch of salt. Excellently performed, it makes for a fun night at the theatre.
So not necessarily my cup of tea but in the fervour All Or Noting inspired in the majority of the audience, one can see why this show’s journey has been going for a good couple of years now from the fringe, to UK tour, to the heart of the West End.
Ruthless! The Musical is a self-styled camp cult event in which the musical theatre genre, and several popular musicals, are spoofed. That they are ancient camp favourites such as Mame and Gypsy points even more, er, pointedly to the audience for which this is designed.
ALL OR NOTHING – THE MOD MUSICAL, with book by Carol Harrison and music and lyrics by the Small Faces, will transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre in London’s West End following its current five-week sell-out season at the Arts Theatre.
