Review in ‘Musical Stages’

 

Elaine Delmar as Mary Seacole brought her own stamp to the role and sang gloriously as her arias were particularly well suited for her vocal talent.’

‘This operatic score…an amalgam between Porgy and Bess and Harold Arlen’s wonderful musical Jamaica…truly wonderful.’

‘…the tale told with lots of charm, emotion and a sense of fun … lyrics and book: excellent’

‘Jamaican dancing was colourful and the supporting cast worked wonders.’

 

Matti Aijala, London Reviewer.
