Both Bill Kenwright and ALW were in attendance on Thursday night for this intelligent yet gritty re-telling of the Lord's under-performed and under-praised musical about love, sectarianism and football. How many shows can you recall that have lost virginity, Protestant marching bands, kneecappings and suicide? Not to mention a score that is improved with the loss of that cheesy tune now grafted onto Love Never Dies. Bill and Andy need to take heed that the reason this works is because it belongs in a small space and it will undoubtedly flop in the West End. Still the performances were competent if not captivating with the exceptions of Niamh Perry who the Peer has an eye for and the breathtaking Freddie Rogers who will go far. Top marks too to the dialogue coach!
