I really enjoyed 42nd Street. It is a good old school show but so wonderful to watch. I loved all of the songs and the story line but most of all I enjoyed the tap dancing. The speed and precision was amazing – I was mesmerised. Later in my tap class we started to learn one of the dances, as my tap teacher had been to a master class with the choreographer. How fortunate was I to be learning one of the actual numbers!
School of Rock, the Musical is very similar to the film but you appreciate the talent of the children when you sit so close to them. It was really fascinating to know, and see, all of the children were playing their instruments. There were electric guitars, bass, keyboard and drums not to mention the singing – all such high standard. All actors gave 150% and really got into the ‘rock’ spirit. You left the theatre upbeat and wanting more. As if you had actually been at a concert. It is definitely in my top 5!
