Want some romance? Some comedy? A frizzy perm? The Wedding Singer is showing this week at The Playhouse. This performance will tickle your 80s fancy and tick off all your rom com needs. And you won’t be the one sporting the gigantic perm- unless you want to that is…
We were lucky enough to see the opening night of this laugh a minute performance on Wednesday night. It was everything we hoped! We were dazzled by popping neons, big BIG hair, a variety of incredible 80s costumes- not forgetting an array of merengue wedding dresses!
Hats off –or maybe leg warmers- to the hardworking cast. Each character was 100% believable, even fake Elvis had me wondering if The King had actually returned! It was clear that a great amount of effort, energy, and time had been put into this heart-warming performance. It was very well rehearsed and polished to sparkling, glittering perfection.
The leading couple were the perfect pick for these roles. Both doing musical justice to the many solos they had to perform throughout the show. The professional ability displayed by them, and indeed the whole cast, was really impressive. These guys can really rock out a tune!
Each scene had us hooked, and each song had us tapping our toes. We can’t quite get over some of the amazing choreography in the show: 80s boogying, nanny bopping, awesome gymnastic displays- even a cheeky little pole dance!
The Playhouse and it’s cosy intimate atmosphere makes the perfect setting for this popular romantic comedy. The Wedding Singer is a must see vintage performance that closes on Saturday.
Our final thoughts? A bright, bouncy, and downright brilliant performance from the cast of The Wedding Singer. Well done guys! Go see it. Go see it today!
The Wedding Singer is showing at the Playhouse till Saturday the 1st June.
