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!

Jig-So by Lloyd Macey

23-year-old Lloyd Macey launched “Jig-So” as part of his final-year project working towards his BA Perfformio at University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Featuring familiar faces such as Boyd Clack, whose acting credits include “Twin Town” and “High Hopes”, and Shelley Rees-Owen, who is known for her role as Stacey in “Pobol y Cwm”, “Jig-So” was an incredibly impressive project for anyone, let alone a university student. It took place on Friday 12th May at Yr Hen Lyfrgell - despite the drama only lasting for 30 minutes, it was very heartwarming and engaging. It's a bilingual drama revolving around a family in the Valleys that has to deal with the struggle of cancer, which according to Lloyd, is a subject close to his heart. Amazing performances, staging and lighting - overall an excellent evening. Definitely keep an eye out for Lloyd's upcoming performances - he certainly is one to look out for! Lloyd's directorial début was a great success, and we wish him the best of luc…

A Different Brain

On Wednesday 3rd May, Spilt Milk Theatre joined forces with Cardiff Fringe Fest at The Gate Arts Centre to celebrate and raise awareness of Autism. All proceeds went to The National Autistic Society to aid in their continuous provision of specialist services. The first half of the evening consisted of spoken word, poetry and a music performance inspired by personal relationships with Autism. Almost all performers recited an original piece, making the evening more touching, heartfelt and realistic. The second half of the evening was dedicated to a scratch performance of ‘A Different Brain’, a new musical written and composed by Tobias Weatherburn, whose older brother suffers from Autism. ‘A Different Brain’ documents a series of events in the life of Rachel, a young woman with Autism. Despite only being a three-man cast, the musical was impressive, moving and engrossing. Combining a serious matter with light comedy worked really well, allowing all audiences to have more of an insight …
