An energetic cast and an understated performance from Pogo the Summer Street dog are not enough to save this problematic show at the Waterloo East Theatre.
Summer Street never pretends to be anything other than what it is: a spoof comedy musical that takes an already over-the-top TV format and takes it up another notch or three.
Everything is a little brighter on Summer Street, or in this case Waterloo East Theatre. Summer Street takes us back to the heyday of the 1990’s to 00’s Australian soap opera or ‘Soapys’ when Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue were making their marks on television and British pantomimes always starred a Soapy star.
Aussie soap opera musical Summer Street proves an amiable if unchallenging watch at the Waterloo East Theatre.
