McKellen’s “Aladdin” Review

Claire writes: Just to tell you that my husband and I took our two children and a friend’s daughter to the Old Vic in London last night (Sunday, 19th December) to see ‘Aladdin’. Before we went, my 13-year-old son wasn’t too keen – “Pantomimes are too babyish”, he said. And at the beginning, while most of the audience were joining in with the traditional booing the villain and shouting “He’s behind you!” and “Oh, no, it isn’t!”, he kept quiet. However, he soon loosened up and joined in too.

When Ian McKellen first appeared as the Widow Twanky, he and his sister were fairly squirming with excitement. He was quite brilliant, sang and danced like a real trouper – and we girls agreed that he had a pretty good pair of legs on him!

We all had a marvellous time.
