The Hawth in Crawley is easy to find and has a large amount of free car parking. It is a modern venue with large auditoriums. Plenty of toilets, a cafe and a number of bars for reasonably priced refreshments. The staff are always very helpful and friendly. What’s great about The Hawth is that there are no restrictive view seats in my opinion, wherever you get seated you will get a great view of the stage.
Signed, Sealed, Delivered was a complete delight to go and see. From the get-go, members of the audience were on their feet dancing. This show was a tribute to the great Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder has sold over 100 million records worldwide. His career starting at the very young age of eleven years old and it’s still going strong. Some of his biggest hits include ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours ‘, ’You are the sunshine of my life ‘, ‘I just called to say I love you’ to name but a few. Stevie Wonder is not only a great versatile vocalist, but he also has great stage presence.
Lejaune André did an amazing job with his tribute to this great man with great vocals, stage presence and charisma. He made the set list look effortless and he got the audience singing and dancing with the back to back number 1’s that were covered. By the end of a few songs everyone in the auditorium were on their feet.
Lejaune was accompanied by a very talented band who looked as if they were enjoying every minute on stage.
A special mention should go to the talented backing vocalists Sapphire, Porsche, Nathan and Philip who were also very talented dancers. The choreography was creative, original, well timed, perfectly balanced within the performances and they made it looked effortless.
The whole ensemble together enabled the show to be a great success. The audience were cheering and applauding loudly at the end, after spending most of the night on their feet.
If you want to see a show that has great music, dancing and vocals then this is the show for you. A must see for any Stevie Wonder fan.
