Last night I went with my parents to see Remembering Fred, a show celebrating the life and achievements of Fred Astaire. The show featured Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara from Strictly Come Dancing.
I went in expecting this to be a couple of hours of solid dancing, and so was pleasantly surprised when the show ended up being a mix of dancing, singing and video. The video aspect of the show was good and well put together, I particularly enjoyed the contributing voices of Astaire’s peers and admirers as it added a nice touch to the video.
Miranda Wilford and Adrian Hansel were great dancers in the show, but they really shone in their vocals. They were incredible, especially Wilford, who was an amazing powerhouse.
The dancing was incredible. While Aljaz and Janette were the billed performers, there were multiple dancers, each of who were incredible. These tap dancers were amazing, especially Alastair Crosswell who had a brilliant solo dance featuring some drums! Aljaz Skorjanec was very funny and interactive with the audience. However, Janette Manrara was really the performer who stole the show. She was utterly mesmerising and none of my group could take our eyes off of her, and her incredible facial expressions!
Remembering Fred was an incredible show, and a great testimony to the legend of Fred Astaire. 5 stars.
