The Reviews Are Out!
The past few months I’ve been working on as MD on a pantomime at The Epstein Theatre, Liverpool. Last night was our press launch and the reviews are up from last night, very relieved to get 4 stars and looking forward to another three weeks of shows!
“In fact this year’s show, supported by a live band, is packed with tunes, particularly a medley at the start of the second half which includes Atomic Kitten numbers The Tide is High and Right Now.”
“The three-piece band under the leadership of Matt Lawton were spot on for the wide range of songs – a disco medley especially.”
“Musical Director Matt Lawton heads the 3 piece pit band who pack quite a punch in some clever arrangements.”
“…it is rare in the world of pantomime to find such generosity of spirit for another’s work but in this year’s Aladdin at the Epstein Theatre it is one that is finely tuned and one of positive illumination.”
“Although the humour was a heavy aspect of the show, and a strong one at that, the music was good too. The stand-out musical performance came from Aladdin and the Princess joining to sing Whole Again; of course, with the Princess being Atomic Kitten star Natasha Hamilton, this felt more like a mini-concert than a panto rendition, and therefore was probably the strongest musical moment ever for an Epstein panto.”
