In August a friend took me to see a modern production of the musical Chicago by the musical society of Canterbury University.
It. Was. Brilliant.
I was so very impressed with the level of professionalism, instantly feeling like I was in a broadway audience, or even in prohibition Chicago amongst the jazz scene. The singing, dancing, costumes, acting, it was all of a very high standard.
I particularly loved the costumes, all in sexy lingerie or suits, the black was all
matching and the ripped stockings gave way to the sinister profession of the murderesses.
I'm not much of a muso, but the band and cast were amazing, from the first number (All That Jazz) I was blown away and instantly trusting their performing skills.
I came home with the Cell Block Tango running through my head, feeling very sexy and powerful.
I will definitely be attending another MUSOC show and can't wait to see what they come up with next!
