I’ve seen this 3 times before, unfortunately this was one of the weakest versions, with the notable exception of Che, who was astounding and couldn’t have been better cast. Eva’s character was not at all in keeping with the fiercely ruthlessly ambitious, yet charming and likeable young woman of the people that the original casting intended, but instead came across as simply cold hearted and generally unpleasant from the start. To the point that when she died, it seemed no great emotional loss. It is a fine line indeed when playing this character which unfortunately fell very short with this version. Vocal were also sketchy in the first half, but redeemed in the second somewhat. There was also far too much recycling of Magaldi’s actor to other parts throughout the show, which only goes to break down some of the realism. He is too much of a major part in the show to be reused like this, despite being an excellent performer. I think the size of this theatre also clearly dictated the limitations on the orchestra, which despite some excellent all round performance, seemed to lack the oomph of previous shows. There were also a lot of timing issues, due in part I think to the cuductor seemingly at times, taking his cue and timings from the drummers via video link. I could see this clearly from the front row. Despite this, the show is always a pleasure to see. I just felt leaving a little underwhelmed on this occasion.

Very efficient in every respect. Pleasant staff in bar and an ideal seat in the stalls. We loved the show and the singing of all the major characters was faultless. This is a nice intimate theatre and in a great position in Charing cross Road. We reserved on line and tickets were ready on time.
