Lorelei Lee is about to embark on the Ile de France for a cruise to Europe where she intends to marry the delightfully rich Gus Esmond, son of America’s button king. With her is her friend, Dorothy, both of them ex-Follies girls, when clouds start to gather in the clear blue sky of the future she has planned. And so we are off into a fast-moving, witty and spectacular show that has some great show-stoppers, including I’m Just a Little Girl from Little Rock, Bye Bye Baby, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and the unforgettable Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.
As far as I am aware this is the first time that this particular show has been performed in this part of the principality. Based on the 1953 film of the same name starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell.
The set was built in house and appeared to be easily moved and reset. The costumes as always were stunning and certainly made the performance very colourful.
A well rehearsed cast played their relevant roles with great enthusiasm, very good diction and movement.
The principal characters of Lorelei and Dorothy were played by mother and daughter Naomi and Terri Harrison. Their musical numbers were well performed . The show`s big number Diamonds are a Girl`s best friend really went down well with the audience.
The supporting players, Ian Sherwood as Gus, Charles Owen as Henry and Karen Barker as Ella performed admirally.. Mavis Hills and Edward Smith as Lord and Lady Beekman brought some great comedy moments.
A well drilled chorus and dance troupe added their support with great harmony.
The orchestra as usual were unobtrusive and moved the musical numbers along nicely.
A good evening`s entertainment.
Thank you all for your hospitality. Me and my Girl your next show, looking forward to it already.
