The Chiswick Playhouse has opened its first production under its new name. in the studio space above the Tabard pub. I love you, You’re perfect, Now change is running until 30 November.
I went to see it last week and it was great fun. It’s billed as a brand-new version of a hit musical. To me it seemed more like a revue – a selection of songs based on different scenarios on the theme of love, sex and relationships, but with no over-arching story line.
It’s none the less engaging for that. The four actors / singers are very accomplished West End performers and Laura Johnson in particular has a fabulous voice.
You can tell from their very honed and toned muscles that they’re professional dancers and they worked their way through the numbers – sad, poignant, funny, witty – with an ease and confidence which made for a highly entertaining show.
