When ‘La La Land’ was referred to as ‘The movie of the year’ with critics calling it ‘Perfection’ I knew it was a movie I had to see. As a life long fan of musicals both on stage and on screen, my expectations were already high, and the rave reviews and awards that showered La La Land only served to raise my expectations higher, so when the DVD was finally in my possession, would it live up to the standards it had set itself?
It’s been far far too long since I had the pleasure of seeing a bit of musical theatre, so needless to say I was hugely excited to see Sister Act at Bradford’s Alhambra theatre this weekend. Especially with the knowledge that the show had been put together by Craig Revel-Horwood and would star Alexandra Burke, who I have long since said is the greatest talent to come from a British TV talent show in my lifetime – Apologies Leona fans. The question was, would the show live up to my expectations?
