Bananaman The Musical @ Southwark Playhouse #Bananaman #ManOfPeel

***** Deliciously ridiculous, outstanding nonsense with musical genius! So much fun to be had! 

The Southwark Playhouse is a small venue and they made good use of the limited space they had to provide a varied and interesting number of set changes.

As for the show itself. It was brilliant. The script music and lyrics are all very witty and Leon Parris has written some brilliant songs. The cast were all fantastic and I found myself smiling and laughing throughout the whole production. The band were on good form and Sam and I were delighted to see Ben Carr and Sam Pegg were performing (they had both been working on The Toxic Avenger Musical) so we had a brief catch up with them.

The whole feel of the show captured the Beano comic and animated series feel of the original Bananaman source material perfectly and it certainly hit the spot.

Here's the video that gave me the heads up on this musical masterpiece:

Grab your tickets while you can!!!! We’ll be back!!!
