ED2012 Musicals Review: A Little Night Music (The Norfolk YMT)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Musical Reviews

Amateur but very well done, this is a fun, light hearted production of Sondheim’s period musical comedy. The sparkling, cynicism and humour were carried over well by the convincing leads, who were sharply subtle, their characters convincingly portrayed. Ironically, one of the main flaws was the singing: while in places it was wonderful – particular mention goes to the rendition of ‘Send in the Clowns’ – other songs, especially those preformed by most of the cast, were often difficult to hear. This may have been more down to sound balancing than the group’s abilities, however; technical problems were also obvious in the occasionally awkward and distracting lighting. Yet, despite these small issues, this production of was very high class for an amateur show.

C too, 6-11 Aug, 6.00pm.
