Hmm, there is really no way this static, constantly smoked filled staging could be classed as an excellent production. The cast gamely make the best of what material they have, but for my money, the smaller roles of Miss Pross and Madame Defarge were the best. Defarge's final raging was the only point of the evening I could believe in any of it - the rest was pantomime.

It is not at all the fault of the cast that this musical doesn't really get off the ground. The songs are trite and shallow in their emotional content, and bear unfavorable comparison with the towering colossus of the genre,. . . Les Miserables.

I was impressed with the actor playing Sydney Carton on the night I saw this production (14th April), and vocally the cast was good, . . (with what they had to work with).

What on earth made anyone think that this was worth reviving?. Well done, cast ,for sticking with this Lame Duck !
