Hair at Milton Keynes Theatre...
Last Saturday night Stuart and I went to see - for the final time in this run - hippy musical Hair at Milton Keynes Theatre in, you've guessed it, glitzy Milton Keynes.
As I have said many times before, we do travel to some far-flung places to see crap productions of our favourite musical.
Despite our misgivings, we have grown somewhat fond of this production.
On this occasion it was rather rushed though - the 10pm curfew meant everything had to run 10% faster than usual which was bit weird. There was precious little sign on the voluminous dry-ice we had come to expect either. And the normal X Factor lead Jake Quickenden was back as Berger sadly, Bradley Judge was back playing Woof which was good, and also luckily Louise Francis was still playing Dionne. And of course the gorgeous Paul Wilkins as Claude was, and is, ever excellent.
We shall miss this little show. But fingers crossed the 60th year anniversary production is better.
