Craig Revel Horwood to direct the musical - a little gem if you ask me - at the Watermill, Newbury, this summer. Will be fascinating to see how it plays in a small space. I assume it's actor musician?

Saw the matinee today.  I enjoyed this a lot.  Craig Revel Horwood has done his usual trick of scaling down a big show, without making us feel we are missing out on anything.  Having seen the somewhat overblown original TRDL production, the PoW transfer with the cheap set and the tour with a very sweaty Marti Pellow, I think I enjoyed this outing the most.  The book has great clarity and there are some fun touches.  The trio of witches (Tiffany Graves, Poppy Tierney, Joanna Hickman) look & sound fab, Rosemary Ashe reprises her role as Felicia Gabriel, Alex Bourne is a good fit as Darryl Van Horne, and the actor-musician ensemble are as hard-working as ever.  There is a versatile New England style set.  Minor grumbles - Act 2 opens with a weird clay wrestling scene that does nothing to further the plot & makes a right mess of the witches & set; would have liked to have seen "Loose Ends" back in the show (it isn't).  Well worth the trip to Newbury.  I find a matinee visit here on a sunny day is about as good as it gets!

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.
