I’ve been to this wonderful musical twice already, and recommend it to you. From the opening car crash, to the middle truck crash, onto the ending hanging crisis, I was alert, amused and entertained. Once again Centerpoint shines and creates musical theater awesomeness. And I don’t know anything about Shortland Street the TV Program. All that’s required to enjoy this show is a sense of humour and the gumption to attend.
My biggest surprise is the cast list, although the cast is a mix of professional and “amateur” actors, it is actually fully professional. Actors trained at NASDA and Toi Whakaari, perform with super experienced music teachers and Abbey regulars; professional at every aspect. I’m biased (She is my daughter). A star is Sarah Judd playing the teen aged Rachel McKenna, she shines, especially in a scene with four other women in “The Five Wives of Doctor Warner”. Another standout performance was Gary Clark as Sir Bruce Warner with “Be a Villain”.
Attend the show and find your favorite. The whole show is a standout.
