ED2012 Musicals Review: The Secrets Hidden In The Beatles Rockband (New Celts Production with Dedwest Productions)

ED2012 2/5 Reviews ED2012 Musical Reviews

With hardly any Beatles, or much playing of the Rockband game, at least there was a semi-interesting plotline to keep this show ticking along; it tells the tale of two childhood friends reunited after two years, who finally air secrets that have been plaguing them since they last spoke. ‘The Secrets Hidden In The Beatles Rockband’ didn’t, overall, paint a particularly impressive picture: the songs were okay, though let down by the rawness of one actor’s voice, and though the choreography could have been worse, it certainly didn’t sparkle. Possibly the best performer in this show was the pianist, but with very simple melodies, even he couldn’t bring much pizazz to the whole thing.

C eca, 2-26 Aug (even dates only), 3.50pm.
