Christina Bianco Review : Sherman Theatre Cardiff



The incredibly talented singer, actress & impressionist Christina Bianco, brought her 'Me myself and everyone else' tour to the Sherman Cymru theatre, and we were lucky enough to be there! Not only that, but we had the pleasure of meeting the lady herself as Nathan presented her with a portrait made with pizza! After greeting with a big hug, the pizza was unveiled Her reaction was priceless!

Christina - WHAT IN THE WORLD! You've combined my two favourite things, Italian food and ME!

Nathan - wow thank you I'm so pleased you like it!

Christina - is it really to tomato purée?

Nathan - Yep all edible!

Christina - what I really love also is the composition of the pepperoni and the veg around the edges it's adds so much depth!  I draw and doodle too but nothing like this, what an honour!

*lots of photos taken*

Wayne - So Christina, have you been about in Cardiff?

Christina - Yes oh my god you have such a beautiful city! I wanted to go to be bay but didn't have time, that's a good excuse to come back! I did get to go to the castle and visit some Sherlock sites! So amazing!

Wayne - and you had the weather too, that's rare!

Christina - Yes but I'm sure it's still beautiful anyway! I live it here you're all so friendly! I can't wait for the show to begin!!

Wayne - Well neither can we, best of luck!!

The show from start to finish was absolutely outstanding. Having seen some performances on her viral YouTube videos we knew a little bit about what to expect but had no idea it would be so hilarious all the way through! Her own singing voice could easily stand it's own in any West End production (we later found out her dream role would be Elphaba in Wicked) and her celebrity impressions ranging from icons like Streisand and Garland, to modern stars like Ariana Grande and Paloma Faith were spot on!
Self admittedly her best and favourite is Celine Dion - it's unmistakeable accurate and spookily like she's in the room singing to you! Other favourites that got the crowd on their feet were of course Dame Shirley Bassey and TV sketch impressions of iconic characters from Ab Fab, Sex and the city, Friends & Will & Grace!

Christina Bianco is without a shadow of a doubt a force to be reckoned with and we predict this is just the very start of a very long career owning the stage!

The Addams Family | Wyburn and Wayne Cardiff Times

Frightfully Fabulous Family Time! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Cooler than the Kardashians, more twisted than the Trumps, The Addams Family have descended upon Cardiff Bay for twelve nights of music and mischief on their UK tour of the Hit musical.
Even before the show started I was in awe of the ghoulishly gothic and gorgeous set and then the lights dimmed, the fingers start snapping and the magic begins as the kookiest family of them all take to the stage. The Addams Family have graced our TV and cinema screens for over 50 years and this production has a perfectly cast ensemble to play the iconic death obsessed family that everyone loves. Les Dennis is fantastic as Uncle Fester, he has some great numbers in the show and his lovable character brings much giggles. Samantha Womack and Cameron Blakely are superb as Morticia & Gomez, they pay great tribute to every actor before them that played these roles possessing all the chemistry and charisma that made these parents the most devilish yet deliciou…

Crazy For You

Gershwin, Glamour & Glitz! Crazy For You is a Glorious Hit!
Cardiff went crazy for Crazy For You Tuesday night at The Wales Millennium Centre. Featuring probably the most talented ensemble ever to grace a stage, these guys act, sing, dance and if that ain't enough provide the music to the Gershwin brothers beloved score. 
It's clear why Tom Chambers stole the show and the prize on BBC Ones Strictly Come Dancing, like the energiser bunny on acid he dances with pace, grace and the stamina of an athlete while singing those big Gershwin numbers. He's charismatic and hugely entertaining as Bobby Child and there's great onstage chemistry between him and Charlotte Wakefield (Polly Baker). Big surprise of the night goes to Caroline Flack who's voice was beautiful, strong and convincing in the fabulous role of broadway vamp Irene Roth.  Crazy For You has it all, the big numbers, slickly choreographed routines and lots of laughs. The scene between Chambers and Neil Ditt …

Emeli Sande with support Calum Scott

On friday 21st October 2017, Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena was entertained by one of the UK's best selling artists of the past decade, Emeli Sande, and her incredible support act, Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scott.

The arena was full and the atmosphere electric. Britain's Got Talent alumni Calum Scott opened the show, with high energy, crisp & powerful vocals serenading Cardiff with some of his own tracks from his up coming debut album. A personal highlight being his next single "You Are The Reason" which was both emotional and captivating, alongside a surprise cover to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. Of course the crowds went wild as he thanked them for and quote "one of the best gigs I've ever done!" And continued to belt out the hit that started his career "Dancing On My Own". Calum is without a doubt an artist to watch out for over the coming years - raw talent.
