Yesterday, The Boy Child and I attended a matinee perforamnce
of Alan Parker's Bugsy Malone.
Given that the majority of the cast is made up of children
and young adults, I was expecting it to be rather mediocre.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
Ninety minutes flashed by,
watching great acting, laughing at fantastic comedy
and on my feet, dancing and applauding until my hands hurt.
My favourites parts of musical theatre
are the whole-cast ensemble pieces;
singing and dancing as one.
A truly stellar production.
And I now have the show's final lines stuck in my head ...
"you know you're gonna be remembered for
the things you say and do."
How very true.
