Although nervous, la Scala has a delicious voice with the perfect tone and phrasing for the genre. However her justification for including the racist song 'Mr Wu's A Window Cleaner Now' in her set is weak. The juxtaposition of singing and letters is intelligent yet fails to flow as seamlessly as presumably intended. A concluding mini-sermon on war appears as more of an afterthought than a unifying message.
Ultimately a good director is needed to realise the full potential of this thoroughly original show. One to look out for in 2011.
