The Devil Sings Long And Loud

For a treat, I took Gail to the theatre last night to see the musical version of The Witches of Eastwick. It stars Marti Pellow, the former singer of Wet Wet Wet. Oh and how the ladies in the audience screamed when he first appeared on stage.

I hadn't seen the film before, so I didn't know what to expect. On the whole I quite enjoyed it, but maybe not as much as Blood Brothers. The acting, dancing and singing were very good, although I didn't think there were any really memorable songs like say Cats or Evita have. Every so often my interest awoke when some scantily clad female came on. The "devil dancers" were something else!

Photography was of course banned, but I took a shot when the actors gave their curtain calls. It's not the best photo I could have taken, but at least I hope you can tell it's Marti Pellow.
