“A superbly atmospheric piece of musical theatre” Disability Arts Online, about Irresistible at Decibel
The showing was also attended by Colin Hambrook from Disability Arts Online, read his full review on the
Disability Arts Online website.
We’ll just have one Crew (that’s JoAnne), one of the Hobos (Si), the Sirens, Hamish and Ben who’ll work wind the hand-crank sirens and me of course! We’ve been trying to make a baby performance because it has to last about 20 minutes. We are going to have a Q & A as well – we’ll talk about what’s next for Irresistible.
I’ve chosen to keep all the songs, but for this we’ve taken out the crew doing all their action and performance bits. One or two of the songs have been shortened such as I Travel On. I think even though it’s a bit shorter people will still get a sense of it – it’s the last song in the show and it’s about partying and finishing a journey.
Same as the full show, I’d like people to enjoy themselves, have a good time, let it sink in and come away thinking it’s really cool. There’ll be lots of people from different countries and I hope they’ll want us to come to them.
We’re performing on Thursday and we’ll be at the Royal National College of Music Theatre in Manchester at 2.30pm – if you’re coming to Decibel, enjoy yourself and I hope to see you there!
