A bit of a Cinderella piece and not without its faults, but this premiere of Lionel Bart's Quasimodo is certainly done with verve by an energetic cast led by the powerhouse of a voice that is Steven Webb.

And a couple of lovely ballads.
If I listed every show I'd seen since 1974 I'd get RSI.

The book is rotten, but the songs and performances are fantastic, especially Steven Webb. Loved the scaffold and ladder spider's web set too. It's only until Saturday, but is a real gem. Also good to hear from artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher beforehand that they pay the performers equity rates, unlike so much of the fringe. 4 stars from me on the blog http://www.frontrowd...e-sunday-7.html
