Mother Superior Has A Screw Loose!
Last night we went down to the opening of Sister Act The Musical at Manchester’s Opera House. It was a storming show with brassy costumes and a roof raising musical score. Originally we’d gone along just to support our friend Denise Black (who is playing the sought after role of Mother Superior) but you’d have to be a real cynic not to get caught up in the swing of things. We may be cool Jazz heads, but when it come to talent we’ll support it, and this show has it in droves. Based on the 90’s hit film, it was co-produced by the films star Whoopie Goldberg so the show retains all of the sass and comedy of the original and of course some belting vocals.
Taking advantage of her time back in Manchester, star of the show Denise will be celebrating with her own show at Matt & Phreds. Well known as an actress, especially in North West favourites Coronation Street and Queer As Folk, Denise is also a singer with her Folk/Rock act Loose Screw. She is planning a fabulous one-off show featuring iconic covers and heart pumping, harmonic folk rock, with its roots firmly in the tradition of entertainment. The act received great reviews when she took it to Edinburgh in 2010,described by *Classical Source* as ‘Vibrant, Kooky and Fun’.
Loose Screw at Matt & Phreds: £5 Entry, Doors 7pm.
