Mother Goose Tour Review

Loving the theatre has introduced me to a range of shows, musicals, songs and venues over the years. I have loved seeing so many of my favourite movies on stage and some of my favourite actors and actresses too. However last year I heard that Sir Ian McKellen was touring with Mother Goose and I knew there and then that I had to buy tickets. Sir Ian McKellen is up there with one of John and I's favourite actors ever since we first saw Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Being able to see 'Gandalf' on stage is a dream of ours that we didn't even think would ever be possible however we lived the dream last week and we were totally star struck and overwhelmed.

Mother Goose Tour
Ian McKellen and John Bishop are flying into theatres across the nation with a hilarious comedy for all ages.

Mother Goose is a live entertainment spectacle not to be missed – scramble for tickets to see two legends of acting & comedy “work beautifully as if they have been a double act for years” (London Theatre 1), and get ready for fairies with hefty vocal chords, puppets with tap dance qualifications and impeccably constructed mayhem that will quack up those aged between 3 to 103!

If you are only able to see one show this year then honestly this is the one to choose. It's non stop laughs with John Bishop and Sir Ian McKellen as Vic and Caroline Goose. As they try to figure out how to pay the ever increasing bills to save their home and animal sanctuary, Vic and Caroline take in a homeless Goose. Just as they are about to be evicted Goose needs to lay an egg which is in fact golden. Her golden eggs make Vic and Caroline very rich, but does the fortune bring them happiness? You will have to watch and see.

The cast of 15 all have their time to shine and usually there are a few stand out performances however for me they all were amazing and each gave it their all.
