Review

Queen's We Will Rock You apart, this  is arguably the best show to see if  you want 'face melting' rock anthems.  The wafer thin plot sees Hollywood hopeful Sherrie Christian and struggling singer/songwriter Drew Boley crossing paths in a Sunset Boulevard night club.

Their on/off relationship forms the main thread of the show and leads Natalie Baker and Sam Gregory at convincingly and sing most impressively, justifying their casting by director Mark Barton Leigh.

Paul Rogers, in particular, and Dave Smith form a fine comedic double-act as narrator Lonny Barnett and club owner Dennis Dupree.  The arrival of fadino Jax-star Stacee Jaxx (Jim Smith) turns Sheree's head but all ends well.

Energetic choreography and a rocking band led by Chris Ball on keys sent the audience home happy and singing.
