    The Wedding Singer at the Theatre Royal.
    The film is one of the few Adam Sandler films I really enjoy. Part of the charm is the 80s influence, particularly the music. Which makes the decision to write this play with original music a little confusing, and the play certainly suffers for it. It also seems to be a play that while it got a lot of praise when it originally started over ten years ago, doesn't seem to be a big one, so the theatre was quite empty.

    Having said all that, I quite enjoyed it. It was a decent b-level show. That cast worked really hard despite the small crowd. While the songs aren't blowaway hits, there are some catchy bits of some of the songs

      [QUOTE=studio150;8095792]Got dragged along by the wife/QUOTE]

      Fair play to admitting to that on here
      Mrs Bn9 wouldn't even ask me let alone drag me along ( she would know what answer was coming) she did enjoy Mamma Mia though on a girls night out.

      Also saw this last week. It was OK but never really took off for me.
      The original songs came about because the producers didnt want to pay out licensing fees for the 80s songs. It was all the poorer for it and in my opinion it couldve sold far better if it was marketed as featuring those hits.

      Saw it Saturday in a half-empty theatre. Much the same.

      I've seen much smaller productions use licenced songs, can't see why they couldn't, didn't need to be loads, just some of the key ones to keep the story moving and add the comedy element. Do you really want to hurt me for example.

      Saw 'all or nothing' which was brilliant. I also saw the 'illegal eagles' who I really liked. Theatre Royal seems to be diversifying into more live music. Hill
