#245633 Lift: The Musical

Posted Kristian on 16 November 2012 - 01:48 PM

So happy to see the announcment for Craig Adam's musical 'Lift' at the Soho. I saw a version of it at the Soho Theatre a little while ago in the Festival of First's I think it was called. I've been hooked ever since. Julie Atherton and Luke Kempner are amongst the cast. Check out the announcment. Really can't speak highly enough of this show from what I've heard and seen.

I've never seen a decent West Side Story.I saw a wonderful 16 year old Maria in Leeds AmDram once but I've never seen a believable Tony.

Was it LAOS a few years back at WYPH?

Maybe we should all band together!

Because that wouldn't look even weirder. We'd probably find ourselves dragged into some sort of enquiry.

Although I was annoyed a little bit with David for stealing my audition song. :P WHEN I sang it Donna tried to tell me I wasn't a Tenor which confused me seen as how Awaiting You is full of Top A's and C's :P But I'm just jealous and bitter seeing my friends smash it on the telly box.

This is a hard one. AT the moment I'd go with 'Lost in translations' from LIFT but maybe 'How Glory Goes' from Floyd Collins. :)

Was about to book tickets, then I saw Joe was Tommy and now I'm glad I didnt...

EVEN after his wonderful rendition of Una Furtiva Lagrima? :P

Tim Minchin was the weakest of the three, for me. His high note was done nicely (albeit it did sound rather forced, and I think it slightly cracked at the end ... but it was drowned out by Ben starting to sing), but he sounded too nasal. I'm surprised that ALW cast him saying that he has a fabulous rock voice, etc. I never thought he'd have that type of following either, as a lot of his fans like him for his comedy.  I always thought ALW would cast a well known rock star (I don't know any) or someone like Ramin Karimloo to get the fans to come in. But as tickets seem to have sold quite well, I guess it won't be a problem.

Just get his understudy Tim Prottey-Jones on instead. He'll rock it. NO idea how Minchin would survive with the runs in 'Heaven on their Minds'. :/

I've just heard from a friend, that they are having real trouble with the bus and it's thrown a few doubts on whether the tour is even possible with that set.
