2020 The Musical (Fit The Mould Productions)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2023

Just like 2020, this show certainly won’t be forgettable. A look back at the disaster that was 2020 sees our two theatre protagonists flung into the unknown in a show that was constantly amusing and varied with many memorable moments including dancing elderly, humorous Boris Johnson and songs about Lidl. Natasha Mould has written a simplistic storyline but has directed these sensational musical moments while showing the bizarreness of the year in a funny, yet at times moving, way. The full cast is excellent with Natasha Mould and Tom Watson being spotlight-worthy protagonists, Samantha Richards was brilliant as the busker, showcasing the most vivid vocals. A musical for all, with superb music, direction, acting and story.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 27 Aug.
