Inspired by the music of Madness, this raucous musical comedy is an uplifting tale of life and love, heartbreak and hilarity, good and bad, set in London’s famous Camden Town in the mid-80s.
It’s Joe Casey’s 16th birthday and tonight’s the night he’s treating his girlfriend Sarah to an evening in a brand new luxury apartment – the only problem is he has to break in! When the police turn up Joe has to decide – run away, or face the music – a choice that will set the course of his life, and his love, forever.
Bringing together one of the most successful British writers with one of the best loved British bands, this new actor-musician production will have you laughing, crying and dancing in the aisles.
Using some of the greatest hits from the mighty Madness back catalogue including: Our House, Baggy Trousers, My Girl, Driving in My Car, The Wings of a Dove, Night Boat to Cairo and the all-time classic It Must Be Love – you’d be mad to miss it!
Our House is written by Tim Firth whose work includes the record-breaking Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, Preston Front and Neville’s Island.
Review of Oh What A Lovely War 22nd October 2014 by James McPherson
Briiliant. A superb ensemble show. Not to be missed. This is the only way I can describe The Bradford Players production of Oh What A Lovely War at The New Bradford Playhouse.
I had never seen the show before and wondered if it was right to present a show about war. I am very glad I saw Oh What A Lovely War. It is sensitively presented and an excellent way to remember with respect the people from all parts of the World who died in the First World War.
I laughed, cried,sang along with the songs and learnt a lot I did not know about the First World War . The show is a roller coast of emotions as it tells the story of the First World War and the people involved. Excellently directed, first class choreography and a superb band that does not drown out the singing. The ending is one of the most emotional I have seen in any show.
I had two little concerns which, from comments I heard, were shared by other members of the audience. During the First Act it was hard to read the information that was projected onto a curtain which did spoil the effect. Second, I would have loved to have been able to properly applaud the cast and the band at the end. Perhaps the cast could have returned to the stage after a few moments to take a bow. Having said that this is a show not to be missed.
Oh What A Lovely War runs until Saturday night and is well worth seeing.
