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 delicious couple of all time. Both actors deliver huge numbers and dance a tango worthy of a Strictly Trophy! Carrie Hope Fletcher makes a perfect Wednesday and judging by the huge crowd at stage door dressed like Wednesday I think it's fair to say she's a huge hit in this role. Carrie was flawless and probably better than any Wednesday I've seen on tv or screen.
The Addams Family (The Musical) has it all, a great score, giggles, gouls and gorgeous sets. The choreography is slick and the songs are big and catchy, you'll be foot tapping and snapping your fingers as they dance and sing through two hours of mischievous musical theatre.
Recommended for anyone from 3yrs to 300yrs The Addams Family appeals to everyone, it's a great night out and quite possibly the best musical touring the UK right now.
The show runs from 1st August until 12th of August at The Wales Millennium Theatre.

Putting the Specs into Spectacular  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Oh Boy... it's so good! The Buddy Holly Story is still packing the theatres in after 25yrs and over 25,000 performances worldwide and it's clear to see why. The story of Buddy ticks every box, you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll most certainly tap your feet, clap your hands and sing along to the classic hits that shot Buddy Holly to super stardom. 
The cast are incredible, superb performances in the roles of Buddy, J.P Richardson 'The Big Bopper' and Mr swivel hips Ritchie Valens. Two hours of massive hits including 'Peggy Sue' 'Oh Boy' & 'Rave On' to name a few are the soundtrack to the life of Buddy Holly and his meteoric rise to fame.  Buddy is at The New Theatre until Saturday 8th July and it's a must see, feel good show that will have you bopping in the aisles and singing along to all those classic hits. A great touch at The New Theatre is the Budd…

Many Man

Many Man
Written & Performed by Tobias Weatherburn  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tobias Weatherburn triumphs in Spilt Milks production of Many Man, taking us on a rollercoaster of emotions as he explores the multiple personalities of a man searching for happiness by creating a new persona each time life fails him. Many Man is a journey of a man searching for the better version of himself and ultimately wanting just to be the man he was born to be. From the start we thought this one man show would be something of a comedy stand up. There was much laughter as Weatherburn described his characters life and got all philosophical on life in general and each time the character transforms himself into a completely different persona it's done so cleverly and with lots of humour. It's not until each persona fails and breaks down that we see the dark and tormented side to his complex character.  Weatherburn delivers impeccable comic timing and nails a number of accents which keep flipping the show fro…
