Adventures of Gamblegirl
Adventures of Gamblegirl - Another Theatre Review **** Am really liking this theatre going business. Forgot how good they are!!! Date: Wednesday 3 December (22 more days to Chrissie folks!) Production: The Lion King - don't laugh. I lurve the movie and have always wanted to go see the musical. I was rueing that I'd missed it when I saw the advert in New York and sware to myself I'd go see it. Staring: Simba - our lovable cub and a cast of many native African animals The Plot: Seriously, do I need to refresh you on this? Go get the DVD or steal it off your niece or nephew. It's a classic - even if Elton's produced some of his most cheesiest material. Heck hasn't stop Phil Collins from having a career (I see he's back doing the soundtrack to the newest Disney cartoon flick. Good to see his career's kicking along!) For the sake of those that don't have a clue, Simba's father, the King is killed in a plot thought up by the deliciously evil (so Tim Rice, this role is yours) Scar. Simba runs away, Scar destroys the kingdom, Simba returns, confronts his past and fights with Scar for his rightful title (man, I should be a reviewer!!!) Seating: Up in the rafters - with a damn good view. Could see just mighty fine and dandy thank you very much. Verdict: How's this for a big call!!! It's better then Beauty and The Beast and Chicago and they had Hugh Jackman in them!!! Woah - very big call from this girl. (Oh Hugh,how that is a massive hottie how out thou! X Men's not that bloody good!) Seriously, from curtain open to curtain close, it's pure magic. The story hasn't been meddle with (as they sometimes do!), the sets, props and cheography (that word again that I can't spell, C'mon Jules you normally correct my spelling, tell me how to spell it correctly) are AMAZING. Tribal dancing and singing, have you humming in rapture and the characters are the ones you love, the jokes never fail to make you chuckle, the song you know - okay hands up who's already humming to Akuma Ma Tada - yes I know you are. There's no shame in that. It's ... well... brilliant. When it comes to near you, where ever you are, GO SEE IT!!! I know when I get down to my beloved Melbourne, I'l be going back to see it. I can just only hope that they can fit Bert (Newton) in there somewhere. It just wouldn't be the same without him! Cheers Gamblegirl Love and kisses from your neighbourhood freak!!!!
