Visit number 5 to view Jeff Wayne’s War Of The Worlds live on stage.

Justin Hayward returns and although he can still sing he is starting to look his age and I personally think someone younger with a bit more mobility would suit but at least is was not like David Essex appearance on the stage version.

The rest of the cast in Kevin Clifton, Claire Richards, Nathan James, Duncan James and Anna-Marie Wayne were excellent.

The visuals slightly changed with the dropping of the Martian scene at the beginning and replaced with narration through the ages by HG Wells played by Callum O’Neill with a “modern” message ;(

My 4th trip to see the “big” show (I don’t count the mini version in London) and it did not disappoint.

This time it was once again at the Brighton Centre.

No weak links this time like Marti Pellows terrible performance and apart from a small wardrobe malfunction with Carrie Hope Fletchers dress it appeared to go okay although the ghost levitation was missing but I read this had not worked on opening night so maybe it was dropped from the show.

Hopefully it will not be the last time I see the show.
