Review – Caroline O’Connor – The Showgirl Within, Garrick Theatre

Tuesday 28 September 2010

Due to the high pressure demands of a punishing business schedule (he has to go to the Post Office to purchase a Postal Order) we regret that there is only time to transcribe verbatim from Andrew’s notebook on this occasion.

6 piece band + MD!! “I Move On” “And THe Beat Goes ON” Oldham OLD-HAM! Film clips. funny. How lond did those take? Cost? Belter. “Movies Were Movies” GSOH. 4 Dancers – redundant? Bit cheesy? Nice intro. “How Lucky Can You Get” one of my faves. Interval. People in back stalls couldn’t see ANY of film clips!!! Prob best “Zing Went…” on Ldn stage since Rufus Wainwright? “Nature Boy”! Fave. “Roxanne” ugh. Buy toilet paper. Gets a bit out of breath. MD Daniel Edmonds brilliant. “It’s de-Lovely” MERMAN! “Anything Goes” TAP DANCING! “Milord” Piaf. Standing ovation! Are those real tears? “Broadway Baby” Seems like a nice woman. Hope she gets to do Gypsy! one day. 2hrs. Good show. Take that Wonder Woman. Garrick Arms closed for refurb!
