Happy New Year to you, and great to have you on board here at Revive!
This week the Whitney Houston Bio Pic, The Cher Show, and Winter Love Island!
Whitney Houston ‘I wanna dance with somebody.’
I went to see ‘Whitney Houston: I wanna dance with somebody‘ and if you have yet to see it…
I would thoroughly recommend it! It’s a chronicle of Whitney’s rise to Fame and her turbulent relationship with Bobbi Brown.
I didn’t realise how much she’d been through, and it had me glued to the screen throughout.
The girl who plays Whitney, called Naomi Ackie, is one to watch in 2023 – I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of her! (I know she’s co-starring with Channing Tatum this year and is set to star in Mickey 17).
I went to see the Cher Show at the Mayflower Theatre! Bring a huge Cher Fan; I hoped it wouldn’t disappoint…
I’m pleased to reveal it was absolutely fantastic!
The Show tells the story of Cher’s rise to fame and is played by 3 West End Stars – Millie O’Connell (Babe), Danielle Steers (Star) and Debbie Kurup (Lady). When the Show started, I wondered if we needed 3 Chers, but each Performer kept it authentic to Cher, and I soon realised this was a BRILLIANT choice!
I’m so happy that the Show included Cher’s biggest hits – Strong enough (my favourite!) If I could turn back time, The Shoop Shoop Song, I got you, babe… to name but a few!
The Show is directed by Arlene Phillips and Choreographed by Strictly’s Oti Mabuse, which would explain why it’s such a slick production! The Cher Show really is one non-stop party! You won’t be disappointed if you get the chance to see it.
Winter Love Island
Winter Love Island is returning with Maya Jama taking over from Laura Whitmore.
It’s Starting on 16th January, and the grand finale will take place eight weeks later on March 13th – something to get us through the first three months of the year! Yay!
This is the second winter love island, and this time will be taking place in South Africa.
Splashed out on a 1.2 million villa and set to be the sportiest season ever; apparently, it has a 400m running track, a zip line, rugby & football pitch! – Interesting! I can’t wait to see what happens!
