Beauty & the Beast

December 12, 2009

I caught Wi!d Rice’s Beauty and the Beast pantomime with my mum yesterday and rather enjoyed it. As it was considered “family entertainment”, it was more light-hearted and interactive, with less need to try to understand the “jokes”, although they did try to put in some elements/subtle references from the likes of the “beauty queen saga”, pole dancing restrictions, etc. I won’t say it’s exceedingly funny, but it was entertaining, with the song & dance.

Now, about the music. There were some more memorable ones like “Cold Feet” and “A Big Girl Now”, but I think they were reminiscent of last year’s Snow White (I was reminded of “Love at Second Sight”). Maybe because it was Elaine Chan again. Not that it’s a bad thing or anything, but I guess it’s her style for the pantomimes.
