Musicals Week – where ballroom comes to die. Well, not entirely, but it did feel for much of the evening as though we were watching the backdoor pilot episode of spin-off Strictly Come Auditioning For The West End (Who Are We Kidding – Touring Will Do). From Mollie getting 9s (9s!) for open-mouthed contempowaft with an illegal lift, rather than actual rumba, to Joe and Katya battling the extraordinary cognitive dissonance of Brazilian party dance samba and Cabaret, this was a show entirely overtaken by themes.
