Scene of the Titans

2 stars

**

If it wasn’t actually based on a true story, you could easily think the plot of this show was completely improbable and verging on farcical. However given that the premise is true, this could have been a gritty piece of theatre… unfortunately it’s not. Some of the acting and singing is okay but the production values are poor. For example there are a couple of really poignant moments at the end but the rest of the show doesn’t build up with any sort of respect to this conclusion.

The choreography is dreadful and the monotonous music (literally) is basically pointless. This story would work better as a serious piece of theatre, not the fluffy musical it seemed to end up as.
