Saturday 15th April 2017, and for my second treat on my birthday I’m back at the Millenium Centre in Cardiff Bay for the evening, and 2nd performance of the feel good musical ‘The Commitments’. Having watched it last night, this is yet another show I can’t wait to see again.
The cast for this musical are fabulous, with so many great vocals filing this vast auditorium, it’s a pleasure to sit and listen. Brian Gilligan (last Night) and Ben Morris (tonight) were brilliant as Deco, both of them have excellent voices. The three girls in the band also have tremendous voices, Amy Penston (Natalie), Leah Penston (Imelda) and Christina Tedders (Bernie). Yet another treat for me to listen to today. A special mention to Sam Fordham as Mickah, truly terrifying and brilliant at the same time. A wonderful performance.
Another feel good show full of life and exuberance. The band themselves made up from the cast were again superb, really rocking the foundations of the centre to its core. Thoroughly enjoyed myself tonight, definitely glad I got to see it twice before this week.
So today has been another great birthday. Two excellent shows to add to my growing collection, and still more to come over the next few months.
