A trio of cast recording reviews covers musicals Amélie The Musical, Cases and After You – each one a winner in its own way.
Not too much more to say about Amélie the Musical, now in London at The Other Palace, other than book now for un moment merveilleux.
As sweet-sharp as a diabolo grenadine, Amélie the Musical has lost none of its inimitable charm as it gears up for a considerable UK tour.
The Young Visiters (yes, that’s the correct spelling) was written by Daisy Ashford in 1890, when she was just nine years old, then put in a drawer and forgotten about. Years later, it was discovered and published in 1919 – complete with spelling mistakes – with a foreword by J.M. Barrie. The book went on to be so successful that many people suspected Barrie had written it himself, a claim he always denied.
