Bells Are Ringing features 'terrific songs'

Thursday, 7th Oct 2010

A review of musical Bells Are Ringing has praised its songs and "kooky" heroine.

Writing for the Guardian, Lynn Gardner explained that the show set in a 1950s celebrity telephone answering service in New York has "got some terrific songs".

She also prised the star of the show, in the role of switchboard operator Ella Peterson.

"Anna-Jane Casey creates her own little miracle in the role as Ella goes round creating miracles for others," Ms Gardner wrote.

The setting of the show in London's small Union theatre is also ideal, she explained, as it provides the perfect setting for the show which would not work as well on a larger stage.

Anyone who is still in doubt of the show's appeal were reminded by Ms Gardner that the production ran for 942 performances on Broadway in the 1950s.

The production is scheduled to run at the theatre until October 23rd 2010, with performances every evening except Sunday and Monday.
