For this show they decided to take a satirical look at the stereotypes as well as the tricks which writers and directors of musical plays, still play (excuse the pun). All the way down from the music halls, through Fifties and Sixties shows with jolly prancing cockney's in cloth caps and braces, to Lloyd Webber. None came out of it unscathed. Richard Beaumont, one of the co-writers, apologised to me afterwards that they couldn't provide a helicopter landing on the stage and if that is the sort of prop you need to be entertained, then BLAG ain't your teabag. But for good wholesome down-to-earth entertainment, this is what it's all about.
