A Karaoke Wedding

  "Fantastic Musical Theatre,"  "This was fun fun fun right from the first toe tapping number to the big song finale," "The pleasure is unending; the amusement is laugh-out-loud," "A karaoke wedding is a must see," "The lyrics of Harry Blake were close to brilliant. I defy anyone not to leave the Union Theatre with a big smile on their face, "very funny, satirically perfect," "Don't miss this. If you do, the next chance to see it will probably mean paying big ticket prices in a big theatre."

These were just some of the reviews received for A Karaoke Wedding from august sources such as The Stage newspaper, Time Out, Theatreworld and the Southwark News.

All I can say is that I concur entirely with their sentiments. The show is raucous, colourful and choc full of satire in the most poignant way.

It traverses both the gender and generation gaps with some excellent numbers and biting lyrics from Harry Blake. John Hilton's play is comical, wry, witty and uplifting, but above all it never becomes mawkish and always maintains a high level of fun.

Word obviously got around because the theatre was virtually full for every performance and it is easy to see why. The show could have degenerated into slapstick - it never did. It could have lost its way - it never did.

A tightly knit musical put together on a budget that is first class entertainment all the way. You always know that is the case when the time flies - and it certainly did.
