Listening to Razzle Dazzle and can just hear Lisa Norman singing away over everybody else…and there were over ten ensemble members singing at the time. I love how powerful her voice is, and it’s just beautiful. I miss watching her perform - bucket loads of stage presence!
While Lisa may have left the cast, and the show temporarily closed, I am SO happy it’s coming back. Have I said that hundreds of times already? Oh well. Actual small tear when I heard. I know that’s ridiculous and my addiction to it has taken me to the show 17 times, but it means a lot to me. It was the first proper show I saw, the first show I took my girlfriend to see…it saw me through two years of my degree, and through shit times in third year when we were both rather depressed with the housemate (I use the word mate lightly, he was anything but…) situation, and just generally makes me happy. It holds the most amazing memories for me. So, the idea it was closing killed me, and the fact that it’s back in November has quite stupidly made my year. But it means that an institution gets to stay open, people get to keep jobs and other people get new jobs, and given the situation we’re all in (the shit-creek situation) that’s what is important.
