The show slowly brings the audience to the grand finale we all know so well, and I think my favorite scene of all was when the old-ex heroin addict ‘Billy Mack’ performed during the curtain call. During the film he told Michael Parkinson, “If I reach Number One, I promise to sing the song stark naked on TV on Christmas Eve.” And of course ‘Billy’ kept his word for his comeback performance.
If you’re looking for a perfect evening with family and friends to celebrate the holidays, this is it. This production manages to tear your heart out, put it back together, and somehow leave you with a faith in humanity. It’s filled with nostalgia and Christmas cheer from beginning to end, bringing all the festivity, emotions and holidaycheer that the movie does.
