Hair at the Theatre Royal...
Last night Stuart and I went to see hippy musical Hair at Theatre Royal in glitzy Brighton.
As I have said before, we do travel to some far-flung places to see crap productions of our favourite musical!
Only this Thursday night performance was actually much better than usual. Why? The normal X Factor lead Jake Quickenden was off (indisposed?) so they had shuffled the cast. And it really worked. It was funny, sexy, moving, and was sung so much better too. Yay! We got our favourite show back!
Bradley Judge had stepped up from playing Woof to playing Berger and simply nailed it. Louise Francis was a revelation too - playing Dionne (Aiesha Pease also indisposed?)
And of course the gorgeous Paul Wilkins as Claude was, and is, ever excellent.
Let's hope the changes are permanent and not just the swing / understudy night.
Because, yes, dear reader, we are going again!
