4 stars ****
This is a fun romantic comedy musical featuring the intermingling stories of eight characters in an apartment block.
The characters are quite engaging and it’s good to see the character development throughout the piece – it’s thankfully not just frivolous and two-dimensional. It is however a bit predictable, not necessarily in a bad way but there’s nothing really new here. The acting is good with a few laugh-out-loud moments.
The music is okay but not memorable and sometimes not even necessary to be honest. The finale number however is very good and effective.
A worthwhile show to catch and worthy of further development.
