BRAVO for a brilliant tribute to Broadway. The talent and exuberance of this company of three singers-cum-dancers and a multi instrumental five piece band, could hardly be bettered in this cracking paced parade of a 100 years of great Stage Musicals.

Nicky Reader's versatile voice ranged from delightful to fiesty, Ian Knauer and Stephen Emery matched in quality, and the acting in the comic numbers was an added joy.

The earliest showstopper went back to 1911 with Irving Berlin's Alexander's Ragtime Band, from the intriguingly titled Friar's Frolic. Among the work of Berlin's contemporaries was Cole Porter's sublime Night And Day, from Gay Divorce, and his wittily worded Brush Up Your Shakespeare, from Kiss Me Kate, while the Gershwins were represented by I've Got Rhythm, from Girl Crazy.

Knauer and Emery made for a likeable pair of lovelorn sailors in There Is Nothing Like A Dame, from Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific, before being swept away by Reader's hilarious knock-em-dead delivery of When You've Got It Flaunt It, from that hysterical masterpiece by Mel Brooks, The Producers, which also provided the fitting finale, There's Nothing Like A Show On Broadway. Excellent.
