"Heart & Music" Lloyd Webber Show
"Heart & Music" is a musical theatre cabaret showcasing
the talents of Tony Appleby, Alinta Burnell, Elise Dickinson and
Toby Truscott and is musically directed by Tim Smith. The first
act of the show is a tribute to the offerings of Andrew Lloyd Webber
including songs from such shows as "Evita", "Phantom
of the Opera", "Jesus Christ Superstar", and "Song
and Dance". It also includes songs from such well known musicals
as "42nd Street", "Les Miserables", "Chess"
and "Boy From Oz", plus some other offerings for the true
music theatre buffs. The performance borrows it's title from the
song of the same name, a song that tells us that "you've got
to have heart and music to make a song". Here the performers
of Tony Bones Entertainment share their heart and their music.
The second act explores a lyric from the title song "Heart
and Music" that states there are "stories of passion,
stories of friendship, and tales of how romance survives".
The second act delves into all three of these stories. The gents
start off the second act with all the confrontation, madness and
vigour that is "City of Angels", then bring the audience
more of their favourite Lloyd Webber numbers from "Cats"
and "Phantom of the Opera". It also includes some well
known delights from popular shows like "Les Miserables"
and "A Chorus Line", and some of the new wave of musicals
from the last ten years or so that perhaps are some day destined
for our shores, including "Jekyll and Hyde" and "Sideshow".
This show truly does have something for everyone.
