beauty and the beast

Remember that ghastly show that used to be on in the afternoon with Seldom Toogood – so easily and delightfully lampooned as Bloaty and the Beauts? Jeez, will the horror never end?

This evening we cruised off to take in Beauty and the Beast – the Disneyfied musical. We’d been given free tickets and so I was expecting the back row of the nose bleeds. But no, the second row, in the sweat zone. Well done, that Olivia.

The sound of the singing was a little bit raw for my liking, but the sheer exuberance of the performance more than won us over. image from www.hocusfocus.co.nzA thoroughly enjoyable experience with a real ‘gee-whizz’ factor – some great special effects. Great costumes (well done that Weta). All in all, a great night out – live performance – it’s all good.
