It has been over 50 years since the wholesome, handsome brothers from Utah, The Osmonds, began their career.
In the first musical to be staged at Park 90, the Park Theatre’s smaller space, The Burnt Part Boys proves to be one of the finest examples of Off West End musical theatre.
The stage is set beautifully. A gathering of men, singing to the sky, tell of the distant depths they travel to for their work, and their hopes of returning to the surface to see the sun once again. After this powerful opening, the next few scenes didn’t quite live up to what was promised at the outset. There were a few hurried lines, a song where the characters were drunk, some overwrought emotions that seemed out-of-place at the outset of a show.
