Just come in from a wonderful evening, Holly took me to The Old Globe Theater to see Robin and the 7 Hoods. Holly’s sister Jessica got us the tickets 😛 This is the first time I see a musical with professional singers, not that they are bad in Norway but having actress doing musical is not always the same. We had a great and lovely time, only problem it was freezing cold – to much aircondition 😀
Here is a short version summary:
A world premiere, Broadway-bound musical comedy that takes us back to that sexy era in pop culture where «Mad Men» reigned supreme, martinis flowed freely and the songs of Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen («My Kind of Town (Chicago is),» «Ain’t That a Kick in the Head,» and «Call Me Irresponsible and many more) ruled the night. Take the writer of Broadway’s murderously giddy musical Curtains, add the director who intoxicated us with The Drowsy Chaperone and taught Monty Python how to dance in Spamalot, and top it off with a sexy, soaring score of classic Cahn and Van Heusen songs and you get ROBIN AND THE 7 HOODS, a new musical that takes the Robin Hood legend and gives it an early sixties spin. When Robbo, a suave, fast-rising entrepreneur in Chicago’s sophisticated nightclub scene, finds himself wanted by both sides of the law, he and his merry band quickly learn that a few wrongs and a few songs could make things right.
If you get a chance to see it, you will not regret 😛
