Liza Pulman is a total show stealer.I had not come across her before - she was very funny and her voice - especially in the song Superwoman in Act 2 is to die for.I, and several other people, commented on how not only in looks but vocally she was like Louise Dearman.
Jenny Gayner was also a standout as Chloe.
Sabrina Aloueche and Adam Pettigrew were a great double act - Adam having to play a 16 year old virgin on heat was hilarious.
Our main bug bear was Steven Serlin who plays Hugh.His acting was as wooden as most of the stage and his singing was,at times,painful.
Towards the end he bucked up a bit but whenever he was on stage he was cringey.
I have no idea why they cast him - there must have been better choices.
It was a shame because the rest of the ensemble were strong.

It wasn't a criticism, stevepearman, but simply a statement of fact on my part, i.e. that in advance, I neither know nor care whom I'm seeing when it comes to musical theatre, since as with plays, I choose according to a combination of factors such as subject, author, etc. And I'm choosy, too, what with limited funds and time.
Theatrically's review sounds great, so I'm really looking forward to seeing the show now and maybe you will also be encouraged by it.

The one song I felt was a weakness was falling (or whatever its name is) at the end if the first half. Sabrina us struggling with tonsilitus, but did so well. Tonight we only had 12 in the audience. But its in previews, so hopefully will pick up. If I lived nearer, I would be back.
