LONDON: Eurobeat (Novello, West End) - 9/13/08

"Eurobeat" is a spoof of Eurovision, which itself has attained notorious kitsch status. If you are not familiar with the format, the setting is a European song contest, with each country represented by a musical act. The spoofed acts here are funny enough, but all this hardly constitutes as theater (winners are determined by the audience using their cell phones to call in their votes!). Additionally, cast in this West End musical noticeably lack the polish of a Broadway chorus, which is a bit of a distraction.

Rating: *1/2 (out of *****)
