Once you get over the sheer improbability of the whole premise (and the copy of the Truman Show) this actually starts to become quite a good show. This is mainly due to the music and the musicians, who are great and play with a commitment to the story and it’s this which held the whole thing together for me. The actual music is very good and really varied, showing off the talents of the cast.

Singing-wise the diction could be greatly improved, particularly in the opening number and the characters need more developing (is this is cut-down version?). There are a couple of genuinely funny and poignant moments but otherwise it’s average fair – good to see something different though.
