delivers quick random humour embedded in a punchy and well crafted
self-written script, as she talks to her audience about her personal
experiences of modern dating including the many ‘nutjobs’ she has
A detective develops a fear of heights after a chase across city
rooftops leads to a near fatal fall. It’s this weakness that will
prevent him from saving the wife of a close friend from falling to her
death from a bell tower. Sound familiar?
This is an original and powerful
production that blends history and realism with the fantastic and the romantic.
Musically it is satisfying and uplifting. Dramatically, it grows from an uncertain
opening to a lively and passionate second act.
Blessed with good humour, a magnificent score, and a leading lady to write home to
mother about, the production never really displeases – even when it’s difficult
to hear – and is, more often than not, almost helplessly endearing.
