THE BARRICADE BOYS: Christmas Cabaret – The Other Palace Studio ★★★★★

In Cabaret, Concerts, London theatre, Musicals, Opinion, Reviews by Olivia MitchellLeave a Comment

The set of 23 songs was varied and extremely well put together with a mixture of festive favourites, Les Mis hits and some more unexpected songs. Standout moments included I’ll Be Home For Christmas/Bring Him Home and Man In The Mirror which both featured tight harmonies and wonderful interaction between the boys.

I’m a fan of Jane McDonald, for parlaying the publicity she received as resident singer in BBC docusoap The Cruise into a sizeable showbiz career, with tours, a gig on the Loose Women panel and even a part in Cats. She’s got a pleasingly big voice and an even bigger personality, she’s always ready with a great line or three to show us what an ordinary English Northern lass she is. And I believe it, I believe that Jane McDonald is just like us.
