    Attended the Matinee show on Sunday 04.08- The sound was poor, voices out of key and many of the cast members were falling around..Probably the worst I have seen in JNB. I could not wait to leave. Great job considering that none could previously skate and it must no doubt be a very challenging show, physically. That's where it ends. All in all I hated it.. but that's just me. The "kid" had the most annoying voice "Control, Control!"

    Janice Honeyman should be congratulated in pulling this (very challenging) production to realisation. Not only did she contend with the elaborate sets, the fact that every performer needed to be able to roller skate, dance and sing (well) made this production especially challenging. I have a particularly 'soft spot' for this show (and have enjoyed previously abroad), and enjoyed once more. I feel guilty to critique too harshly but Janice, more emphasis (and quality outcome) on individual vocal performances, would take this production from good to great ! Nonetheless, again delighted that we in SA have the ability to stage this wonderful show. Particularly if you have younger children, a MUST SEE opportunity for a world class theatre experience before it's gone !!!
