Just had a great rehearsal for a short run of 'Last five years' at LAMDA.
Its a wonderful show with a really interesting storyline and very jazzy music!
Very small cast of two, James and Su, great actors and singers, and just us and the MD in the pit.
It's great to do a musical again, it seems like ages since the last one we did! I had forgotten how much the shows take it out of you though!
Musicals are an interesting thing, there is so much room for flexibility in the music especially with a reduced band and a condensed arrangement. For example the MD has put some chopping in Sarah's part (at request) to jazz it up a bit and it works really well.
Anyway, if you have a free Thursday or Friday next week at the Nursery come along its going to be great.
