This is totally off topic in that it is not about Alston, but it is once again about me having my prejudices shattered!!! Seems to happen a lot!! Anyway, during the summer I attended a Musical Theatre course at Mountview, a drama school in London. As part of the course we had a masterclass session, and it was with one of the cast members of Bombay Dreams. I was very scathing of Bombay Dreams, as were we all, as all I had seen/heard of it was Shakalaka Baby, which is not really the sort of song which would attract me to a show. Anyway, we weren't really looking forward to this masterclass but we had to do it, and in the end we really enjoyed it, it was just so mcuh fun. We had a short technique class and then learnt one of the dances in the show. By the end of it everyones opinions had done a 180, and we all wanted to go and see the show!!! I never got to see the show, and I am afraid that I have once more become slightly scathing of it, as I have read more reviews and heard more peoples opinions, although I haven't forgotten how much fun that masterclass was. And this post has made me think about how bad it is of me to be this prejudiced, and has made me think maybe I should make the effort and go to see it!! And another thing I have ben even worse about it the new musical of Romeo and Juliet, it has just recieved such bad reviews it is hard to take it seriosuly, and I do want to go to see that but I wanted to go for a laugh, not becuase I was expecting quality musical theatre. So thankyou for making me think, I need to do it more often!!!
