Whilst many may be more familiar with Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1996 musical adaptation of Whistle Down The Wind, the Union Theatre have staged Russell Labey and Richard Taylor's 1989 version.
Sasha Regan's beautiful production glimmers with old school charm. The young cast give their all and impress throughout. Within the score are one or two musical gems; most numbers are delightful, although I couldn't hum any to you now.
It's hard to imagine this piece working anywhere other than the Union Theatre. Once again Regan has directed a golden production of a forgotten piece of treasure.
