Jan McNulty Posted May 25, 2012 Share Posted May 25, 2012 If you want to come out of a performance uplifted, full of excitement and fulfilled after a fantastic show, then go and see Northern Ballet's I Got Rhythm!! I've just seen three performances of I Got Rhythm in Leeds and they were all fabulous. This production has two acts, each act consisting of a longer Gershwin suite to start, some individual songs and a suite to finish. The suites are American in Paris, Cuban Overture, Rhapsody in Blue and finally Girl Crazy. The dancers perform with panache and obvious enjoyment and there's some lovely choreography. Because so much is involved most of the company are on somewhere in every performance and it gives some of the younger dancers good opportunities. Personal highlights: Martha Leebolt - glorious in everything she did Toby Batley - sensational in everything he did Sebastian Loe and Hiro Takahashi - hilarious in I Got Rhythm Again Sebastian Loe in I got plenty of nuthin The Girl Crazy finale It may be light, frothy and showbiz but this is a fantastic production with fabulous performances. Go and see it! It's on in Leeds till tomorrow night and then in Norwich next week. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
