Accompanied by the well tuned Adam Blosse on the upright piano, The Guildford School of Acting graduate, Harry Kit Lee, takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of his life to date. Speaking of his struggle with Bipolar disorder and his tough childhood, Kit Lee tactically weaves 20 legendary songs such as 'as long as he needs me' from Lionel Barts 'Oliver!' to 'Diamonds' by Rihanna, to express a particular points in his life. A delightful second act opens with 'Somewhere' from Bernstein's West Side Story and introduces the gorgeous Jen Bird who's voice strongly pulls at ones heart strings as she takes the lead on somewhere that's green and duets Suddenly Seymour with Kit Lee in a small 'Little Shop of Horrors' set.
Harry discussed a song he used to perform in his show, which suggests that he changes material frequently to keep things relevant. Though it seems as if the narrative between songs is scripted, it feels organic and truthful in nature, which is the meaning of the entire piece. When diving into the low points of ones life within the piece, it comes from the heart and takes a huge amount of bravery to get up on a stage and pour ones heart out. The intimacy of the show is most definitely a highlight, and the piecee as a whole has a lot going for it. - Alex Grainger
