H.R. Haitch is a brilliant example of the future of musical theatre in Britain and walks a playful line between politics and humour that provides an important dialogue about the ridiculousness of our current state of world.
Much like Chelsea and Bertie’s romance, H.R. Haitch might not always be particularly elegant, but it’s good fun, and its heart is in the right place. And if nothing else, it gives us a couple of hours’ escape from wondering who’s going to walk Meghan down the aisle.
Two groups are better impersonated on television than by theatre: the Royal Family, and East Enders. In H.R. Haitch they collide awkwardly in a royal wedding spoof musical with all the elegance of a bin lorry ram-raiding Buckingham Palace.
