GOTTA SING SOMEWHERE IN THE UK SOON!
What is the matter with the City of Peterborough on a Friday Night? Has the big double dip recession hit us already? Just been to see what has to be one of the most professional song and dance shows, Jordan Productions (in association with Eastbourne Theatres) touring “Gotta Sing Gotta Dance” the choreographer must be the ultimate professional theatrical bastard, for what he/she managed to get out of the seven strong ensemble chorus and cast would grace any West End or Broadway stage, writes Julian Bray.
Strong singing, jazz dance, hitting ALL the notes from high opera to a bass baritone, that was just the female blonde lead! We had frenetic dance, superb Bob Fosse style punishing tap dance routines, rock, comedy, pop, musicals, even a Starlight Express style roller skating sequence, not forgetting an Evita to die for.
A proper live pit orchestra (but located back stage) made up of ‘session’ musicians , a superb lighting plot, over 50 musicals represented in 2 hours and even a dip into Madness. Suggs eat your heart out (that’s a fiver you owe me, I’ll pick it up at the ‘French’ Pub in Soho, London).
I say what is the matter with the City of Peterborough and for that matter the Vivacity quango, that has somehow sat on and decimated the Key Theatre marketing effort and meshed it in with libraries, swimming pools, creches, the Cathedral Square kibbled onion smelling mobile Hamburger van (dead classy, nice touch, but could be wrong on that one..), litter picks, naff free street entertainment and anything else to make the Vivacity quangoette look busy with our money. Oh add in the £6 million fountains (all dug up and fenced off again this week as they leak!) It’s just not working chaps!
Back to the Key Theatre, on Friday night the auditorium was just half full, it should have ‘House Full’ signs and police barriers holding back thousands more who couldn’t get a ticket, resorting to selling babies or Grandmothers and battering the theatre doors down.
Where were the highly paid Vivacity marketing staff? They should have been leafleting the shopping centre crowds, hitting the phones, doing something positive – filling rows of empty seats or do they only work 9 to 5 when there is an ‘R’ in the month?
Well fair City, you have one more day and two performances to redeem yourself. Saturday 11th September, the infamous 9-11, so be at the Key Theatre, Peterborough for the matinee at 2:30 pm, have a pre-theatre dinner at the astonishingly good Riva Restaurant, part of the theatre complex and go again at 7:30pm to see the final evening show if only for the Stomp sequence! You really need to see the show several times to take it all in.
Really amazing, curtain calls, to cap it all, several standing ovations. We all reluctantly left the auditorium exhilarated, exhausted and blissfully happy. You should have been there….oh, even the Phantom put in a fleeting appearance complete with gondola, now that was really cool!
You won’t see the like of this style of show again for a long while. We had in one place, the future of British musical theatre talent and thousands of you missed it…… the show is currently touring the UK so Google in Jordan Productions and catch it somewhere in the UK over the next few months. Peterboroughs’ loss could well be another venues’ financial gain!
