Baby Remember My Pain...

With nostalgia of leg warmers in the fore-front of our minds, K, V and myself take three youngsters to see Fame at the Manchester Opera House.

Definitely a performance of two halves, the second half comes to life and starts to (just about) earn it's keep, though with a few notable exceptions the vocals are still less than impressive and the ensemble dance pieces less than polished. The first half however struggled to even reach mediocrity, the plot is weak, the characterisation flimsy and the performance as thin and cheap as the red rah-rah skirt worn by one of the leads.

Save your money and get the Alan Parker film out on DVD.

Plot weak, characterisation flimsy, performance thin and cheap. Ah, so glad to hear they stuck to the original.
