YOU – theatre review (Lady Gaga gone wrong)

http://theatreview.org.nz/reviews/review.php?id=5604

My Expectation was high as I drove to Onehunga to attend ‘You’, the Gaga extravaganza! I am a big Lady Gaga fan so was excited to see what APAC (Adam Performing Arts Company) had to offer. The programme states that ‘the piece is a gargantuan accolade of music, love and humanity on the fringe of homespun entertainment.’ Wow – can’t wait!

Pearce St Hall is a community space, that houses a catwalk with seating around the stage for this performance. The curtain opens to a city landscape, the music is loud with a silhouette of Lady Gaga on the back wall with no performers. Next up is six dancers huddled together, who break into dance with the pop track ‘Just Dance’. Adam Procter leads the ensemble, with 4-5 backup dancers wearing short denim cut-offs, black singlet and a blue shirt tied midriff.
