The on-stage badinage between Michael Ball and Alfie Boe is clearly well rehearsed, but it’ll still put a smile on your face. The affectionate bromance between the pair shines through every quip and faux snub.
They start with a kind of sing-off competition, belting out snippets from their repertoire (Hairspray, La bohème, West Side Story and Les Misérables among them) before cutting each other off mid-note with a witticism or a put-down.
Of course their voices are stupendous and it’s a wonderful hour of singalong presented in a traditionally entertaining way. But for me the highlights of the show include their mocking versions of guest Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up (which he takes with good humour) and their Chitty Chitty Bang Bang attempts to upstage Maria Friedman. If you have only half as much fun watching as they seem to have performing, you’ll be very happy.
Double Olivier Award-winning star of the stage Michael Ball and top tenor Alfie Boe join forces for an evening of music, including theatrical classics from their new album Together and an exclusive medley from Les Miserables. The pair also welcome some special guest stars for some unique collaborations as well as share a few memories and some laughter along the way.
