Summer vibes and 80s nostalgia arrived in Wolverhampton with this new fun musical show.
Bringing all the touches you would expect from an 80s show such as big hair, shoulder pads and plenty of fake tan, this show never takes itself too seriously.
The story begins when a bride and groom suddenly get cold feet and turn to the support of their friends. They both decide to chase after the sunshine and jet off abroad without realising they've both checked into the same hotel. There are also dramas at the hotel too with unrequited love and a hotel inspector eager to close the resort.
The bride Lorraine, played by Karina Kinds, and Olly, played by Cellen Chugg Jones, both had a strong chemistry with each other. Their duet of She Drives Me Crazy was a highlight of the show which showcased both of their vocal talents.
X-factor star Joe McElderry delivered a strong charismatic performance as Gary throughout. He arrived on the stage with lots of energy and immediately got the audience up on to their feet and learning some new dance moves.
The hotel staff included Serena, played by Amelie Berrabah, who delivered outstanding vocals and she had great chemistry with Robert, Neil McDermott. There was also the grumpy chamber maid Consuela, played by Kate Robbins, who was hilarious and kept the audience laughing throughout.
Hits included Don't Leave Me This Way, Relax, Take On Me, Just Can't Get Enough, Temptation and Addicted To Love.
Proving many laughs along the way, all of the storylines have a satisfying ending. With comedy and many well-known 80s hits this is an easy to watch feel good show.
