Brian Conley doesn't unbalance the the show, he enhances it. Ticket buyers want and expect Conley to add some influence and would be sorely disappointed if he didn't. Dangerous Brian wasn't there but he wasn't far away either.
Overall I found the sound wanting in places, the orchestra drowned performers on occasions and young master Huttlestone's Dodger needs to slow his speech down just a tad so as to be heard and understood. Still an excellent night's entertainment, well worth seeing. - Bob Derrington
