Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake

The performance was full of character, colour and excitement, which was greatly appreciated by the audience during the evening. As for the scenery it did not distract but enhanced the story. In fact it was a delight to watch. It is well worth seeing.

Hair The Musical 50th anniversary tour at the New Theatre Oxford

As for the show itself, the performances by the actors and actresses were on the whole good. I thought the acting, dancing and singing by Jake Quickenden (Berger), Claude (Paul Wilkins) and Daisy Wood Davis (Sheila), was very impressive.
