Sorry that the spacing has gone crazy here:

Failing to score
Despite the best intentions of its hosts, Mark Shenton believes Cardiff's International Festival of Musical Theatre could be

in the wrong place at the wrong time. From The Stage


No one doubts that musicals are a cause for celebration – but they also give pause for concern. The first International

Festival of Musical Theatre, currently taking place in Cardiff, covers both these extremes. The event is looking at balancing

revivals of the great musicals of the past with more recent shows from Broadway and Europe unseen here, while showcasing

future musicals as well.

But has Cardiff bitten off more than it can chew? There were certainly ambitious plans – a festival of more than 100 events,

across three weeks, utilising every possible venue in the Welsh capital and a programme that eclectically included a revival

of a 1987 Glyndebourne opera, The Electrification of the Soviet Union and an original Czech musical, Joan of Arc. It is not

making it easy for itself.
