The Footloose musical review by Katey Thompson, New Victoria Theatre, Woking. July 2016.
Footloose musical review
Footloose The Musical is an evening of foot tapping fun from start to end. Footloose was created by Dean Pitchford and is the tale of coming of age in an American Bible belt town. The songs of Footloose are known by us all who have heard songs from the 80’s and the show does not disappoint with a brilliant live performance.
Luke Baker is brilliant as Ren, a teenager who has been dragged away from his home in Chicago to a small backwater southern town of Bomont. Here we meet the rest of the cast in a church service over seen by the bigoted Reverend (Nigel Lister) who has the final say about everything in Bomont.
