Music from Broadway, Hollywood & the London stage
Strictly Ballroom - the musical
Princess of Wales Theatre to June 26th
The North American Premiere of this musical is currently playing at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto to June 25th. The show is based on the Baz Luhrman film “Strictly Ballroom”. The Musical tells the inspiring story of Scott, a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules and follows his heart, not only to find his true calling but also his true love. I saw this show in Toronto and I rate it 5 stars out of 5. If you are a fan of the movie you will not be disappointed. The musical sticks to the original story and the characterizations are true to the original. The new songs and music dovetail effectively with the original film score. This production has a first rate cast with excellent acting and singing. Even if you have never seen the original film you will not be disappointed in this musical. This show has received rave reviews in Australia and the UK, now starting on North America. A musical for the whole family with lots of heart, dancing and a storybook ending.
