The Band is a unique experience like no other show I have seen. It is a mix of emotions from beginning to end, stirring up personal memories for everyone lucky enough to be in the audience.
Surprisingly The Band – the new musical by Tim Firth interwoven with a plethora of Take That hits – is not a story of how The Band rose to fame, and their ups and downs. Instead the tale is from their fans’ perspective and shows how, despite what life throws at them, they stay lifelong loyal fans.
The Band is not just a musical for Take That groupies – it’s a musical for anybody who grew up with a boyband. This is a musical which celebrates the music of Take That and so much more besides.
A slender scenario in search of a storyline, new musical The Band at least has a solid gold score, utilising the extensive pop catalogue of superstar 1990s boy band Take That.
Actress Emily Joyce spoke to Love London Love Culture about starring in The Band, now playing a limited season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket before heading back off on its UK tour.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Tim Firth’s Take That-inspired musical The Band which has arrived in the West End for a limited season.
Superbly directed by Kim Gavin and Jack Ryder, aided by a strong team of equally imaginative creatives, there is so much more to the success of the intriguing musical The Band than one would imagine.
Whether you’re an avid fan of Take That, or you just know a few of the hit songs, get yourself along to The Band for a show full of friendship, laughs, emotion and nostalgia.
Heart-warming and bursting with pop songs, The Band perfectly captures teenage fandom as Take That’s songs shine in this brand new musical.
I loved every wonderful, heart-stopping, minute of this terrific show. Could It Be Magic? You betcha.
