Pippin...

For a belated birthday present Stu treated me to the musical Pippin last night at The Menier Chocolate Factory. I'd like to say it was fab. Hey, I'd even like to say it was good. But it wasn't. It was just awful. Such a waste of talent. Brilliant people trying to polish a turd.

 I 100% agreed with the Telegraph review, "The music ranges from soulless rock to sunshine pop with a lot of mawkish ballads thrown in, urging us to discover where our spirit can run free. The exit seemed the best chance of achieving this happy result, but on your behalf I glumly stuck it out. It’s all excruciatingly fey. Give this insufferable show the widest possible berth."
