West End Men (Vaudeville Theatre)

They were joined in Act 2 by special guest star Kerry Ellis, who was fantastic too, and a choir.
A really enjoyable evening, but it wasn't full which is a pity. But I would recommend it.
(The cast looks a bit fluid though, so check who is on before you book.)

I'm really looking forward to seeing the show again next weekend - I imagine the set-list has changed a bit since Guildford as it seems to reflect, in part, particular songs/musicals that might be associated with the individual cast members. And as Freckles has said, the casting will change somewhat during the run at the Vaudeville, Glenn Carter will finish on 8 June with Stephen Rahman-Hughes taking over as the fourth West End Man from 10 June. Kerry Ellis is with the show until 15 June and Carly Stenson will take over as the female guest for the last week of the run.

The second half was certainly more alive and kicking with music shows I enjoy a lot and a beautiful rendition of "One Day More" with a choir as back-up. Unfortunately I was once more reminded that I'm really not a fan of Kerry Ellis' voice and I thought she was the worst bit about the second half. Still, the guys sang a Josh Groban song, so that made me very happy
There's no doubt that the four leads are incredibly talented (and while I was until Wednesday night unfamiliar with David Thaxton I was particularly taken with his voice and will now certainly seek him out on the West End stage) but the concert as a whole feels suited more as a one-off in a church around Christmas time, than as a West End show that has to fill the theatre night after night.

Highlights included Glenn Carter's performance of 'Gethsemane', David Thaxton's 'Til I Hear You Sing, 'Bring Him Home' and 'One Day More'...as well as 'Out Tonight' and 'Defying Gravity' performed by Ms. Ellis!
Such a good show- go and see it if you can!
