Let It Snow

by | 8th, December 2005

‘ANORAK the musical promises to be a fabulous show. Set in a local newspaper’s offices in the East Midlands, the show will make Annie look mawkish, Chess dull and Half A Sixpence dated.

It never rains but it snows

Everyone loves a good musical. But Snow!: The Musical was not a good show.

The Sun even calls the show “naff”, more drippy slush than crisp white snow.

On paper a camp Christmas comedy based around festive pop songs – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day, Fairytale of New York and Last Christmas – could not fail.

But it did. The Sun says that earlier this week, the players performed their act before an audience of…two.

The show had to end. The curtains were drawn, hung and quartered. The fat lady had lost her voice from singing so hard.

And this means Hannah Spearitt, the skinny blonde one from former pop combo S Club who starred in Snow, is now looking for a job.

This is cruel. But we urge her to keep her chin up. As the legend has it: “There’s no business like snow business…”’
