With an All-Star cast, Fat Friends The Musical is a feel-good night out for every body and is a HUGE hit!

Charmaine Collison and her husband, Roger, went to review Fat Friends – The Musical for us on Monday 19th March 2018 at the Opera House, Manchester. This is what they had to say about the musical comedy…

The lady’s point of view…

A wonderful night’s entertainment watching Fat Friends and also a night of surprises first of which was to see Freddie Flintoff in a musical ! However he did do a very good job as the leading man even though there were just the odd times when he looked slightly bewildered about what he was doing there but Jodie Prenger did a wonderful job as his other half both in her singing and dancing showing her considerable talent.Surprise no 2 was that Curly Watts (Kevin Kennedy)can sing and very well too Anyone who has ever attended a weight loss group of any kind could relate to this show and love every minute which the audience certainly did.Shedding as many clothes as decently possible before the weigh in would have rung a bell with many people. It was great to see the cast obviously enjoying themselves so much and showing how fit you can be even if carrying a few or quite a few extra pounds. The sets were really clever and so attractive especially with the clever lighting.Definitely one not to be missed.

Score 10/10 *****

The gentleman’s point of view…

Saw Freddie Flintoff in a whole new light.Chorus was first class in both movement and voice.Really impressed by sets really clever rotating to see inside.Never had any dealings with slimming groups but enjoyed the humour.

Score 10/10 *****
