Cole’s Christmas Show Reviews
Cole is the guest host on my podcast “The Inadequate Life.”
Scroll down to listen to Cole and I discussing “Shrek the Musical” at The Grand Theatre London and “Disney’s The Little Mermaid” at the Dunfield Theatre Cambridge.
Both shows were fantastic family fun!
“Shrek the Musical” stars Steve Ross, from The Stratford Festival, and Troy Adams whose credits include Soulpepper.
Cole’s favourite characters were Donkey and Lord Farquaad. They both keep the laughs coming in this playful, and at times surreal, production.Liam Tobin, who was magnificent in last’s year’s production of “Elf the Musical,” is back playing the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.
Every move Tobin makes brings smiles and wonderment to all.
Over at The Dunfied Theatre Cambridge “Disney’s the Little Mermaid” is a treat for the ears and the eyes.
The set design and choreography is the best I’ve seen at the Dunfield Theatre.
Cole’s favorite characters were the wicked Ursula and Flotsam & Jetsam her moray eel minions.
Audience favorite Jayme Armstrong plays Ariel.
Prince Eric is played by David Cotton, who began his professional career with Drayton Entertainment.
I have to admit Cole, an 8 year old boy going on 14, was a bit reluctant to see “Disney’s the Little Mermaid,” especially after all the fun in “Shrek the Musical,” but as you’ll hear in the podcast there was plenty of laughs to keep him thoroughly enjoying the 2 hour and 30 minute performance.
