“The voice that the world fell in love with” – as did this audience. It is with class, charm and imagination that this stellar all-singing, all-dancing cast leads you on a lively whistle-stop tour of Doris Day’s life. I was certainly the youngest of the bunch in this crowd but I was thoroughly entertained and delighted by this glittering, perfectly nostalgic production. Whilst Hughes’ voice doesn’t quite match up to Doris’ own, her conviction of character and evident passion for the role is touching and admirable. The whole show ran like clockwork and the audience left with a light heart and a skip in their step. ‘A Sentimental Journey’ was musical theatre as it should be.
