Review: Sweet Charity by Wyspas
ONCE again Wyspas has offered a lively musical to add to their already successful productions.
It tells of a rather naïve young Charity who always falls for the wrong man and is left feeling let down.
She is a hostess in a nightclub plying her trade along with the other glamorous hostesses but there is a vulnerability which endears her to the audience and elicits their sympathy.
With some gorgeous costumes, superb musicians under their musical director Michelle Howarth a talented cast and some very pleasing harmonies, the show swept along at a lively pace.
The hall was set out with tables seating eight and this added to the general intimacy but made for restricted viewing.
Director Matthew Dye cleverly used the auditorium for a considerable amount of the action which was a very innovative way of involving the audience and inviting them into the story.
The Rhythm of Life was particularly effective and well received and the hostesses in Big Spender made the most of their assets with the addition of excellent lighting and good sound balance.
With such a large cast it would be unfair to mention individual characters many of whom played several roles making the show a great success and the audience responded accordingly. I do hope Wyspas will continue to give us great musicals in the future.
