Music Show – Wedding! (PMC Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

This explosive non-verbal musical from South Korea is a ballistic masterpiece. A timely nod to the UK’s burgeoning appreciation of K-Pop artists such as Psy, the performance dizzies audiences into multicultural, musical mayhem. Although the entire cast maintained a thrilling energy, particularly impressive was the salmon-jacketted saxophonist who not only captivated the audience, but refreshingly dealt with his character’s change in sexuality with charisma and sensitivity. The disapproving father of the bride – who for the majority of the show titillated the audience with elastic facial expression – delivered a moving solo, adding further to the production’s emotional spectrum. The interlude of K-Pop felt a little irrelevant to the narrative, but its sheer irreverence became hilarious. A charming, heart-fluttering marvel.

C, until 26 Aug, 7.55pm.
