I was happy with it too Trek. I liked that they said JH's script has made Dusty so funny and that the lyrics set the scenes rather than just be inserted as in a Juke Box musical. Knowing that it is going from the beginning of her solo career to when she died, means we are likely due for a cry at the end, especially as it features Goin' Back at that point. I liked how they all spoke so highly of Dusty, and though they will no doubt feature some of the bad times, I'm feeling they will do it sympathetically. I hope so anyway!

I think it has potential too.

At last, my laptop in working order from just before Christmas.
Have booked to travel to Bath to see the show, Bath always being on my bucket list for places to visit as
wanting to see the Roman Baths. Kill two birds with one stone, why not.
There for a couple days, can't wait.
Are there any more dates planned? Had a quick look, can't see any but going to take me ages to catch up anyway.

Welcome back Jennifer.

According to the musical's official site there's still only the four engagements from the last week of June through July. It does seem curious that a major production would be put together for such a scant run: sorry to rag on the 2015 Charing Cross Dusty - all involved in which I'm sure wanted to do right by Dusty - but I suspect that "the new Dusty Springfield musical" (with "new" stressed) is deliberately playing a few "provincial" dates to garner good reviews with which to launch a West End run or at least an expanded tour, those reviews being felt necessary to distinguish this Dusty musical from the Charing Cross production (the upcoming musical's early promo did in fact overtly state its non-connection with the Charing Cross production).

Any way - hopefully those good reviews will indeed begin to get garnered in just a week's time. Of course I trust my board buds lucky enough to be in attendance won't hold back their feelings on the show - you don't have to say you love it but I hope you do!

BTW - if any one's interested in signing up to receive email updates on the musical, click here: http://www.dustyspringfieldmusical.com/ ... letter.php

ImageIn a new interview Katherine Kingsley responds to the concern "that die-hard Springfield fans might take offence at the warts-and-all nature of the show": “I’m prepared for people to be unimpressed. We are not bringing Dusty back to life. What I hope people will take away is an honest account of an inspirational performer and a life worth living."

It's a fair comment for Katherine to say Dusty went through some very difficult times, but I hope they don't completely dominate the show. There has to be a strong balance between the good times and the not so good with the good times dominating.

Living in Sweden, I didn't have the opportunity to see any of the previous musicals about Dusty's life (I did see Son of a Preacher Man, which I quite liked). But I booked a ticket for this one, fingers crossed they found a good work-life balance ;)

Jennifer, I loved Bath! Wonderful city, enjoy! And let us have your review of the musical, please.

Massive 'Good Luck' to the cast of Dusty, The Musical. Sure they will do Dusty proud and introduce many new people to her wonderful voice. Looking forwards to seeing the production at the Lyceum in Sheffield. Really cannot wait!
