You And I: A New Musical (Colla Voce Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2019

Think ‘Black Mirror’ meets ‘LaLa Land’ and you’ve got ‘You And I: A New Musical’. The show follows the tale of one woman’s adventures with a very intelligent robot that turns up at her door one day. The soft, lullaby vocals of the cast took the audience on a gentle journey; although the songs are not catchy in the traditional musical theatre sense, the melodies and harmonies are beautiful nonetheless. And a special mention must go to performer Laurence Hunt, whose robot voice remained steadfast and realistic throughout. If you like ‘LaLa Land’ you’ll love this music; it truly is a beautiful mix of soulful folk and near-future technology, all brought to life by a talented cast. 

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
