    Tim Sheader is amazing to get this show on the stage! Fabulous work! Go Regents Park OAT!!

  • Kenneth Griffin says:

    To clarify, this is a special concert staging of the theatrical production.

  • V. Lind says:

    This is actually one show where this sort of thing will work, so well-chosen, someone. I have seen it twice, both times in parks. I was a student for the first one, which was at a huge outdoor space — closest experience to Glastonbury or the likes I have ever had. Masses of people, good sound system, touring cast.

    The second was by a semi-pro group in a smaller park in another town. It was a youth opportunity project or something worthy like that.

    Both were very entertaining. It is not even the best of ALW, but it has its strengths as a show and some jolly songs. don’t remember much about the music, actually, but I can still visualise it and I think it may well work in this context.

    Hope, however, that ALW is not the musical limit of what we can anticipate in “the new normal.”

    The performance will also be presented without taste and fine music, as Webber wrote it.
