This vibrant, classy production breathes new life and energy into this infamous MGM musical. The extraordinary company engage the audience from the opening bars and continue to hold them close until the final breathtaking routine comes to an end.
Directed and choreographed with great heart and humour by Patti Colombo, there is a contemporary edge which allows the routines to explode with life. Even the more traditional moments of the brothers waiting for winter to pass turn into a hotbed of fun.
Helena Blackman is a fine voiced, feisty Millie, more than capable of dealing with the Pontipee pin-up brothers. Sam Attwater is a charming and winning Adam, and this central dynamic drives a great company, some of whom are also actor musicians.
