Well if your reading this I assume you know Chitty, it’s the musical based on the book by Ian Fleming (yea he of Bond James Bond fame). In between the book and the live show came of course the movie.
Featuring songs like: Hushabye Mountain, Me Ol’ Bamboo, Truly Scrumptious and of course Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
I booked to see what is primarily a kids show due to one cast member Carrie Hope Fletcher, playing Truly. She is a blogger and West End star, and someone who’s vlogs I follow. Also in the cast were Lee Meade, Shaun Williamson, Claire Sweeney.
This for me was the show that proved touring productions don’t have to be reduced or “light” versions of their West End parent, in fact I felt the flying effects (come on who shouted SPOILERS … you MUST have known the Car flies!) were more effective in this production than when I saw it at the Palladium in London years ago.
