Dance 'Till Dawn - Grand Theatre, Leeds

Published by: GRAHAM CLARK on 9th Apr 2014 | View all blogs by GRAHAM CLARK
Strictly Come Dancing favourites Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace return in this brand new production. The show was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. It has tons of humour, glamour, an actual storyline and, most of all, spectacular dancing.

Dance 'til Dawn

The story is set in Hollywood in the 1940's and tells of the romance between Hollywood star Sadie Strauss (Flavai Cacace) and her lover (Simone)  who is cheating on her with sultry nightclub singer Lana Clemenza (Abbie Osman).

The story is narrated by private detective Teddy Kempner (Tommy Dubrowski) who has some of the funniest lines in the musical; for instance "Since my wife left me, I am so miserable, it's like she is still here!"

Abbie Osmon who doubles as a Marilyn Monroe lookalike in the musical is engaging, funny and attractive all at the same time.

The musical score is not all from the past either as well as Moon River and That's Life there is also the Adele hit, Rumour Has It.

Oliver Darley who has sung with the likes of Tom Jones and Jamie Cullum is the main vocalist throughout the show and the producers could not have picked anyone better .

Of course it is the dancing that most people are here for and it is as you would expect: faultless with perfect timing. 

A large piece of the West End was recreated in Leeds tonight with this very enteraining show.  

Runs until Saturday 12 April, 2014.

Tickets are available from: wwwleedsgrandtheatre.com
