2017 was a great year for touring musicals visiting South Wales. We set reviewer, Rachel Howells, the seemingly impossible task of choosing her five favourites of the year.
Rent, Wales Millennium Centre
My number one in defiantly Rent at the Wales Millennium Centre. There was something really pure about the performances which stole a bit of my heart. I often wish I could go and see it again.
Miss Saigon, Wales Millennium Centre
The production of this musical is immense. From the busy Saigon street to a helicopter landing on the stage it delighted from start to finish.
Grease, Wales Millennium Centre
Loved watching this show as it was produced more like a concert than a show. Still think about Tom Senior’s amazing performance of Greased Lightning.
La Cage Aux Follies, New Theatre, Cardiff
Not knowing much about this musical I was really impressed by the show as well as costumes, music and set.
Legally Blonde, New Theatre, Cardiff
Loved this performance by Lucie Jones and the rest of the cast
