Hands up who saw the production of Tommy at Nottingham Playhouse? Wasn't it absolutely brilliant! The standing ovation that the cast received was thoroughly deserved!
Having played after show sessions a few times now for different productions, we thought we knew what to expect but this brilliant, crazy cast and crew went one further this time- I can safely say we have never had a limbo competition done to a set of jigs before. It was totally surreal to see Tommy and the Acid Queen battling it out for limbo glory with Uncle Ernie cheering them on!! Fair play, two and a half hours on stage and they still partied with us into the wee small hours armed with drums, shakers, tambourines and I'm sure there was a triangle in there somewhere?
The singing was epic and I wish we'd stopped long enough to get the camera out but the craic was mighty and we weren't stopping for anything. At least Caitlin O'Connell thought to record some of the night on her phone.
Oh, and if you do want to see the show, it's on at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds until 13th May and then they're off to Birmingham.
Take a look at the video page to see the clips from the session!
