Friday night I went and watched Whitney: Queen of the Night at the Grove Theatre in Dunstable. On entering the foyer it was much busier than usual, lots of people queuing to get drinks. On finding our seats in Stalls row D, there was hardly a spare seat in sight. The upper deck of the theatre was busy too.
The production was extremely good. Rebecca Freckleton who is a local young lady from Luton delivered a jaw-breaking, breath-taking performance. Rebecca performed beautifully all the favourite hits of Whitney Houston, which included I Wanna Dance with Somebody, One Moment in Time, I’m Every Woman, My Love is Your Love, Run to You, Saving all My Love and many more. The show beautifully brings Whitney Houston back to life. My guest and I really enjoyed ourselves from the beginning to end. The first half of the show flashed in a blink of an eye. From the very first song, the audience started dancing and every song that followed was a great success and hit. The whole audience were almost on their feet from start to end of both acts. A standing ovation was given at the end with lots and lots of applause.
Rebecca looked the part very confident, she wore some amazingly beautiful dresses and costumes and stole the stage. The backing singers all sang beautifully and were very good too. The band and saxophonist, all played well and were very talented. If you closed your eyes you might have thought you were actually listening to the real deal. Some super singing from Rebecca and her backing group. It was obvious that Whitney and everyone had rehearsed and worked very hard to bring this tribute to Whitney. A big well done.
I would most definitely go and see this show again. A great performance. It was lovely witnessing so many people out enjoying themselves and bopping away, strutting their stuff.
A super, most enjoyable and pleasant evening.
