Grease in The word
How utterly satisfying. A terrific fun evening re-living those classic tunes that never fail to get us up on our feet.
If you are after an evening of sheer fun then this is “ the one that you want”.
Tom parker plays the classic character of Danny Zuko, and whilst some of the acting seemed a stretch, he nails the majority of songs with ease. Danielle Hope soared as a great Sandy. Her reprise of “Sandra dee” was enough to make some of the audience stand. I have to say though , (whilst mentioning Sandra dee) Louisa Lytton was not the all empowering Rizzo that I think we expect. Some notes in both her big solos seemed out of reach. I suppose there are worse things she could do!!
Lovely to see and indeed hear Mr Darren day.( The very lovely teen angel.) After hearing him you can’t help but think that he has been missed from the Stage.
There was very little to fault within this production and so much-perhaps too much to praise.
I have to give a nod to a performer I think we will hear a lot more from in the coming years. His name is George Olney (jimmy). Some of the ensemble gave 100% whilst this gentleman gave 1000% and whilst not pulling focus (apart from one devine shower scene) was totally punching his way through every dance and every moment on the stage. Every character he undertook was perfectly played.
All in all if you have the chance to see this production whilst it is here in Manchester, then do not hesitate.
