On Tuesday night I headed to the Bournemouth Pavillion to watch the 30th anniversary tour of Fame with BH Live. I was very excited to see it after watching the trailer online, I recognised several of the songs.
Fame the musical is based on 1980’s film Fame which follows the lives of students who attend New York’s High School For The Performing Arts.
The show was absolutely breathtaking, all of the cast were incredible and portrayed the characters very well, in particular Carmen Diaz who was played by Stephanie Rojas. She is an extremely talented actress and her singing gave me goosebumps as well as Jorgie Porter who plays Iris Kelly who was also fantastic, her dancing skills were amazing. The whole cast interacted well with the audience making you feel like you were part of the show.
The set was outstanding and really effective. The main focus on the stage was a backdrop which represented a yearbook with photos of the students. The dances were very well choreographed and I liked the fact that some of the props were incorporated into several of the dances.
The storyline was heartfelt from start to finish and left you feeling connected with the cast. The show explored many of the issues that many young people are confronted with nowadays such as identity, pride, perseverance and substance abuse. I loved the I whole performance and I couldn’t help but tap my feet and sing along to the songs throughout the show.
By the end of the show, all of the audience were up on their feet dancing and singing away. I would highly recommend going to see it, the show is on in Bournemouth until 31st August. Tickets are available to purchase online or at the box office. If you can’t make the show in Bournemouth, the show will be touring throughout the UK.
I was gifted a ticket for myself and a plus one in exchange for a blog post however all words are my own. Press images were provided by BH Live.
