I visited the delightful Silk Street Theatre a couple of weeks ago to see On the Twentieth Century, a performance by final year students at the Guildhall School. While I didn’t love the show, the cast were excellent and the theatre itself was lovely with seats that were actually comfy!
‘On The Twentieth Century is a classic American musical that fits the stereotypical image of a Broadway show perfectly. Set on a 1930s train travelling from Chicago to New York, it follows the story of struggling theatre producer, Oscar and his attempts to bring Hollywood actress, Lily Garland back to the stage. Presented by final year students at the Guildhall School, this production showcases the talent of future stars of the stage, but the show itself is not without its shortcomings.’
