The London Revue: What an unexpected and delectable treat. The 20-strong song list benefits from an impressive cast of six, with just the right amount of movement to enhance their vocal stylings. Great directing in terms of pacing and transitions between songs. Pieces range in subject matter from Tube etiquette - or lack thereof - to ripped off tourists, the deranged glee of burglars and fraudsters, a London Marathoner's biography, saucy dates at Kew Gardens, and a run-down of the City's culinary delights by postcode, amongst others. Two very good songs worth mentioning are: The Nearly Mets and The Ballad of Vera & Bob. The score itself is incredibly clever, rife with witty and often touching observations about London's idiosyncracies, which make it so special for both those who live here and those just passing through. James Michalos has accurately captured the zeitgeist of modern-day living in The Big Smoke from just about every angle. Leaves you wondering if telepathy DOES exist...! Perfect for the intimate Canal Cafe Theatre, though would be suited to a larger West End stage with the songs or set list extended. GO SEE THIS SHOW!! It's an absolute fringe gem.
What a wonderful hour well spent! Fantastic little theatre and a truly fantastic show. I would recommend the London Revue to anyone. Brilliant cast and humourous, heartfelt songs. You will laugh out loud, and probably shed a tear too. See this show.
1hr of pure entertainment in a pretty part of town. Too many laugh out loud moments to count, also a few tears! Comic timing was spot on and great voices. I would say a must see for all Londoners. Loved it.
