For the first time in about 22 years I was back at the Opera House, I think the last show I saw there was “Phantom of the Opera” never been to an opening night for anything!
Apparently ALL new musicals will debut in Manchester first before heading to the West End and possibly Broadway.
It’s quite simply the best musical opening night I’ve ever seen and I will go and see it again!
The production is so slick stunning music that you cannot help but sing along to a cast that can actually sing, the young man playing Meatloaf was absolutely brilliant just close your eyes and listen carefully you’ll think your listening to a young “Meat” he really is that good!
I also loved Raven so sweet and sassy at times a young girl wanting to make her own way in the world against her over protective parents eventually she rebels runs away to be with her lover and his gang learning some tough life lessons along the way……..
The show is for adults only due to a bit of swearing and love making scenes and the show received two standing ovations!
I cannot finish this review without mentioning the disabled access is fantastic no issues at all fabulous seats and an usher who bought drinks to your seat if wanted and made sure about transport home was sorted if needed nothing was too much trouble for the staff bearing in mind it was a full house and the theatre is a Grade II listed building.
All in all a fantastic evening out and I will most certainly be back at the Opera House again soon.
