Music Show - Wedding!

It is rather difficult to pinpoint exactly why Music Show, Wedding! is so enjoyable. The musical doesn’t have a catchy title, there’s not much in the way of plot and it’s almost entirely non-verbal. Nevertheless the fact remains, this performance is unbelievably, toe-tappingly, hand-clappingly, mind-bogglingly fun.

Possibly this fun comes from the music selection, which is upbeat and quite frequently calls for audience participation. Possibly it comes from the incredible selection of instruments the cast plays throughout the show, including a trombone, a three-person guitar, an enormous xylophone, water glasses and even a slide whistle. Possibly it stems from the hilarious antics of the cast, or from the incredible and coordinated dance moves they consistently execute throughout the performance. Or maybe it’s even from the multiple outfit changes, which run the gamut from formal wedding gear, to neon and fluorescent attire.

Underneath all this hilarity and enjoyment there lurks a touching and charming story. There’s a bride and groom, thrilled to be getting married, and a father, unable to let go of his little girl. True, the progression of the plot is little more than an excuse for more singing and dancing in the hopes that it will cheer Father up, but in this show at least, that is reason enough for a storyline. And if it’s a massive Party Rock Anthem, Gangnam Style, dance-pop mash-up that finally puts a smile on Father’s face, this is completely believable, because everyone in the audience is smiling too.

While it might be unclear exactly which element makes Music Show, Wedding, so phenomenal, what is clear is that the answer to the question ‘do you want to see this show’ should always be a resounding ‘I do!’

Reviews by Margaret Sessa-Hawkins

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
