Morning all! And thank you again for the chance to go and see Fame at the Grand Opera House last night. This was indeed a show for which the accolade 'hi-octane' was coined.
Right from the opening number (audition scene) it was obvious that the quality of the dancing was going to be jaw droppingly good. The band were onstage throughout, producing a surprisingly full sound for a six-piece, and augmented throughout by the onstage playing of the music major characters.
The great thing about Fame is that there are a lot of characters who we follow throughout their time at PA, who all have different talents and singing styles, so your interest rarely flags. The individual characters (Carmen, Joe, Tyrone and Mabel in particular) are endearing and well written. Stand out moments for me were the immaculately choreographed routine to Hard Work, the boys' ballet/hip hop routine, The Teachers' Argument and Carmen's final scene. My 12 year old ds, obviously, loved Joe's number I Can't Keep It Down (blush...but hilarious) Of course THAT song is featured three times, but that's what most of the audience have come to hear, and they are not disappointed by a sing & dance-along curtain call.
I came out of the theatre wanting to get dance lessons. grin Go see - it's on until Saturday.
