By Jeeves, originally Jeeves, is a musical with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and lyrics and book by Alan Ayckbourn. It is based on the series of novels and short stories by P. G. Wodehouse that center around the character of Bertie Wooster and his loyal valet, Jeeves. (via)
It’s available this weekend on The Shows Must Go On!.
Some thoughts, after seeing it?
- It’s a funny show, I enjoyed it.
- I had little emotions, other than fun. There were some, but little others.
- The music is good, enjoyable, but not extraordinary. It’s good-to-great.
- The actors/singers play/sing well.
- The scenery is OK, the costumes fine, the lights OK.
- The script is not extraordinary.
- The show is a bit long, I got bored at times.
- I give it an 8/10. It’s almost a 9, not quite. It’s better than average, but not great.
- Should you watch it? If you like musicals, yes. If you like Andrew Lloyd Webber, yes. Generally? It’s so-and-so, a bit better than the average. You can listen to a playlist, that’s also fine. Two others: Spotify – Unmasked: The Platinum Collection (Deluxe) & Spotify – This Is Andrew Lloyd Webber.
PS, 2020.05.10: I’ve listened these days a lot of times to the Spotify playlist. It grows on you. I’ll give the movie a 9/10, not 8/10.
