DOGFIGHT - The Musical
Saturday 9th March to Saturday 23rd March
Before creating Golden Globe-winning The Greatest Showman, the Tony-winning sensation Dear Evan Hansen and even before the Oscar-winning La La Land, composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote Dogfight, a heartbreaking and yet beautiful musical. Dogfight is based on the 1991 film of the same name, about a group of young US Marines on their last night on the town in San Francisco in 1963 before being shipped out to Vietnam. Eddie, a Marine, meets Rose, a shy awkward innocent waitress, unless than inauspicious circumstances as part of the Dogfight and an awkward love story starts to unfold. Dogfight is a charming yet gritty show taking us on an emotional journey depicting the blissful ignorance, brashness and seeming invincibility of youth, the compassion, kindness and love in the face of cruelty, and the ability to find true inner strength and acceptance despite the brutality of life and war.
BOB EVANS - Full Circle Tour
With five solo studio albums down the track, Bob Evans' Full Circle which also features new single Drowning is not the traditional 'greatest hits' or 'best of', as Kevin Mitchell explains, "I like the idea of it being presented more like an introduction to my work if you had never heard of me. This would be the record for that person. So I didn't want to just bundle the singles together or present the songs in the order they were released. Some singles didn't make the cut, in favour of album tracks that have grown legs of their own and found some kind of special place of significance without ever necessarily being on the radio or anything I'm proud of what I've managed to create."
