Well worth buying
on 28 May 2017
Most people will purchase this for Elite Syncopations and it is worth the entrance fee for this alone. Colourful, full of humour, sensational dancing with a jazz band on stage.
The Judas Tree is and always has been more controversial. Mainly because of the described subject matter, rather than influence of the dancing. Preconditioned by the story line, it can be a daunting first watch, but in time the performance overcomes the subject matter. Faced with some trepidation, I told visitors that it was about a group of young street dancers rehearsing and that was accepted without challenge.
Concerto by contrast is 'comfortable', but a pleasant enough watch.
