The Curious Case of Benjamin Button @ Southwark Playhouse Elephant…

Last night Darce and I went to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button musical at the Southwark Playhouse in London glitzy Elephant & Castle. 

Set in Cornwall the living-life-backwards show is packed full of shanties, reels, jigs, violins, skiffle boards, foot-taping, and prancing about. 

We quite enjoyed it although it was rather on one note. Full on energy, sure, but there’s only so many jaunty jigs you can stomach in a little under three hours. Like bar after bar of chocolate, it was sweetness overload. 

Well sung and well danced though. Jamie Parker as Benjamin is great. And the second half had a bit more conflict / drama to keep us interested.
