What could be better for a self-confessed of musical theatre and a strange, if slightly-obsessive Proms fan * but an evening of excerpts from a variety of different stage works sung by UK musical theatre chieftan Michael Ball?
Here’s what could have been better.
A concert performance of one entire stage show (preferrably something by Sondheim – say Into the Woods) with a varied cast and absolutely no anecdotes from Michael Ball.
Last night’s Prom was a frightfully disappointing affair. Enough said. Let’s move on. Let’s not dwell.
* Who obviously only ever listens on the radio or watches on TV.
