In the film Julia's cousin, Holly and Sammy have a bit of a flirtation but in the musical version they are actually both major characters and another featured love story. In the musical Robbie goes to Glen for a job but in the film he just goes to an unrelated bank. Billy Idol isn't in this but instead the plain scene features Robbie on a ... more

I have to say that this musical is dreadfull the songs were completely forgettable and the acting was totally wooden, particularly by Johnathon Wilkes. It is obvious why he is best known as Robbie Williams best friend because he really doesn't have much star quality. He's not a bad singer or actor, just not outstanding. The first half of the show went on for over an hour and I was beginning to wonder if there was going to be an interval because it seemed to drag so much. I have to say the show did get better as it went along with the final scene on the plane been quite amusing, particulaly the Tina Turner lookalike. The show would have been better done in the actors own accents, it would have had more soul. Overall I was glad when the final curtain went down.

I thought it was bloody awful. The music was dire, it went on and on and on! It had so much potential but was wasted. It bore very little resemblance to the film. I think I would rather put pins in my eyes than have to sit through it again. The role of Julia was nothing like the role played by Drew Barrymore. I have never left a show early but would have left at the interval if my husband had let me!

First of all I just want to clarify that this is my review of The Wedding Singer Musical, the Broadway adaptation of the film, which has now landed on British shores. I suggested this product after seeing it at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, I didn't see it actually on Broadway. The Story The Wedding Singer is based on the 1998 film of the same title, which starred Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. Set in 1985 Robbie Hart is a the lead singer in a band which sing at weddings, he's engaged to Linda and very happy (or so he thinks). Julia is a waitress at the banqueting hall where she befriends Robbie and is herself waiting for her long term ... Read the complete review
