ED2012 Musicals Review: CappellaJuice – Beyond The Wardrobe (Fiato Facile)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Musical Reviews

Interwoven with light-hearted sketches, the “clothes-based musical revue”, saw six talented singers harmonise their way through an hour’s worth of pop and traditional classics. The concept was slightly confusing, and didn’t lend itself amazingly well to the selected scenes which led into the series of mash-ups: with an occasional joke and some good character observation, the six worked their way through numbers from Busted to Bond. At times the singing was slightly off key – I suspected first night nerves – and some mash-up choices made the songs slightly disjointed. However, highlights came during the more traditional numbers, including the beautifully sung ‘Bonnie Banks O’ Loch Lomond’ and on the whole, the six-piece sounded fantastic, performing well constructed a cappella numbers.
