I Should Be So Lucky – so cheesy, it’s Gouda

Last night, I had the opportunity to see ‘I Should Be So Lucky’ at the Bristol Hippodrome and it was a thoroughly cheesy and feel good experience. 

The musical showcases the iconic hits of Stock, Aitken and Waterman talents such as Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan – cleverly integrated into an engaging storyline.

Jilted at the altar, Ella leaves for her honeymoon accompanied by her bridal party, to find herself and happiness again. Guided by her inner self, played digitally by Kylie Minogue, Ella is reminded that she is ‘Strong, Beautiful and Fabulous’ and that she’s good enough for anyone. 

Cue the laughs, cheesy hits and bridal chaos as the group take over a love themed hotel in Turkey!  

The cast delivered solid performances, with strong vocals and lively dance numbers that kept the audience engaged throughout the show. 

Each actor brought their own humour and personality to the role, with each being memorable for their spin-off stories while supporting the main character with hers.

A versatile set helped to set the scene and transport us to the ’80s and ’90s, adding a nostalgic touch to the performance.

‘I Should Be So Lucky’ was a real success, in blending entertainment with a heartfelt narrative. The story explores themes of love, friendship, and self-discovery, adding depth to the production and making it more than just a tribute to the popular music.

However the music was fantastic. 

Every time a new song began, the audience began to move in their seats with everyone on their feet dancing for the finale. 

A great show. I’d watch it again and again for the feel-good feels alone!
