Ushers – The Front Of House Musical (Matthew Cundy Productions and Kouban Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 26 August 2015


This is a highly enjoyable show about a group of ushers working in London’s West End. New girl Lucy (played by Corrine Priest) is thrown in at the deep end on the opening night of a new musical, and her colleagues take her and the audience on a whirlwind journey of love, ambition and trying to sell ice-creams. The cast work very well together as a believable team of discontented dreamers, and their individual musical numbers are all performed with personal flare. This show has everything you want from a musical: heightened characters, toe-tapping numbers, and romance. This show has an essentially whimsical outlook, but you will feel genuinely moved as well as entertained.

Momentum Venues @ St Stephens, until 30 Aug.
