Mum and I saw Muriel’s Wedding the Musical last Sunday, 17 March 2019. I thought that the Musical was fantastic.
Muriel’s Wedding was based on the 1994 Film and this was the Musical version of it.
ABBA music was involved in the Musical and even a pretend ABBA Band appeared in it. Also, songs were written for the Musical and were written by Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall. Most of their music was very well done. The singing voices were amazing.
The cast was awesome. Natalie Abbott was Muriel Heslop and she was very good. Stefanie Jones as Rhonda Epinstall was excellent. Also, David James was Bill Heslop, and Pippa Grandison was Betty Heslop, Pippa was one of the nasty women in the actual movie. Also, Christie Whelan-Browne was Tania Degano.
The story was about Muriel and it was about her Ups and Downs. Muriel’s Wedding is sometimes a happy story and other times really Not.
I give the show a rating of 8 out of 10.
