Glenn Chandler and Charles Miller have transformed the true story of Fanny and Stella into a musical “romp” packed with puns, comedy songs, a cavalcade of flamboyant characters, and optimism at its heart.
We round up the reviews for the first Fringe musical production to open in London since lockdown, Fanny and Stella at The Eagle Garden Theatre.
Fanny & Stella is a funny, bawdy, light-hearted musical that provides a very welcome distraction from the seriousness of the world.
A brand new socially distanced open-air production of Fanny And Stella, a musical with book and lyrics by Glenn Chandler, the creator of Taggart, and music by Charles Miller, is to be staged as the premiere production at The Garden Theatre in the newly refurbished beer garden of The Eagle in Kennington Lane, Vauxhall, London from 3-25 August 2020.
Club Tropicana drinks are free, fun and sunshine there’s enough for everyone… and Club Tropicana The Musical certainly encompasses fun, sunshine and epitomises the feel-good theatre production.
Club Tropicana will bring a big smile to your face, give you the feel-good-factor and make you feel young once again. Its not an award worthy musical but is certainly good fun and like a summer pantomime for adults.
I have seen a variety of incarnations of The Sound of Music, from the ever popular film, to a selection of touring and regional productions and I also completed a hat trick at the London Palladium during Connie Fisher’s reign as Maria.
It wasn’t an official Sound of Music Singalong, but rapturous audience members forming an impromptu ensemble as the overture led into the second half of the show.
