Saw half the 'I Can't Sing' show. Did not bother to stay for second half last night as interval was extended to 40 minutes, and the first half of the show, based around one joke - the back-story of contestants, was not so amazing that it was worth the wait. It is okay, but it does not have the X-factor! Better to go for a genius production, such as Billy Elliot as life is too short for mediocre.
Although I've never managed to endure more than 30 seconds of X Factor, i loved every minute of this big hearted musical. The set changes are spectacular and the dance routines dazzling and witty. (Including one in a supermarket check out) Harry Hill's sense of the absurd shines through everywhere. With all three judges, an amusing cross section of wannabe stars - including subo and jedward alikes, plus a talking dog, It must be the musical of the year... go see it asap!
I just wish they'd been a little crueler to Simon Cowell !
I think it is fair to say this musical is totally jinxed before it has even begun. I totally appreciate this is a new musical and perhaps can expect a few teething problems initially, but turned up tonight after buying tickets months ago to be met by incompetant and very insensitive staff who told us it had been cancelled (after we had spend £80 on the train getting there!!). A message had been left on our home phone at 11am the day of the show to say it had been cancelled (by which point we had already travelled to London and so were completely unaware!) So when asked how we could get our theatre vouchers back that we had paid with we were given a number to ring and told we could only have an 'exchange' for another night! I didn't want an exchange as I dont plan to be in London again soon and after phoning 3 different numbers and spoken to yet more staff who couldnt care less about our situation they finally agreed to refund us the cost of the tickets. Spoilt our weekend and have to say I will certainly not be rushing out to buy more tickets for this show now that we have completely lost faith in it and will not be recommending, especially after the way we were treated. A very bitter taste left with this show I must say.
