Avenue Q NODA review.
Not everything that comes off the London stages and offered up for amateurs is always a success, but without exception you can rest assured this was a triumph. The unification of man and beast was as one. To have seen the brilliance in which this show was directed, musically, artistically, and performed was incredible. To have mastered the art of puppetry in such a short space of time and worked them in a way reserved for professionals is credit indeed, but not only that, the way in which the cast dressed reflected the puppets they were operating ( A compliment). Comedy is all about timing which was in abundance and had the audience reeling with laughter, adult in content but we are in the twenty first century, deal with it, Not the original set but one I liked and worked really well incorporating the orchestra with an amazing score which flowed throughout the whole show well done Michael J Scott. The cast moved danced and acted with infectious vigour in every number. I’ve purposely not singled out any one individual for accreditation (Not a cop out) as this would have been derogatory to a perfect piece as you were all absolutely brilliant. An evening of wonderful professional theatre.
