There’s a charming treatment of Ahrens and Flaherty’s Lucky Stiff, currently playing at the Union Theatre. The musical is a short slight piece, set in a minimalist stage design, but with an imaginative and energetic choreography from Jamie Neale that efficiently uses the Union’s compact space.
This show is scripted and designed with a young appreciated audience in mind and I believe it does its job brilliantly. It left me feeling enchanted, heart-warmed and charmed when I left the theatre. It really is delightful and I encourage anyone with children to go and see it.
