Last week saw Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts perform a ten-day run of Howard Goodall's widely acclaimed musical Girlfriends​. Performed at London's Karamel Club, the production has already received a fantastic review from lead critic, Mark Shenton. Congratulations to everyone from Mountview that took part!
​"Mountview previously presented Girlfriends in 2012, pairing it with The Hired Man (the latter directed by Paul Clarkson, the Olivier-winning star of the original). This time around, Julie Atherton - a Mountview alumnus - has made her directional debut with a tenderly and exhilaratingly beautiful production.
​I've seen Girlfriends at just about every chance I can, and this time it sounded it sounded as good as it ever has - all credit to musical director Michael Bradley for great new arrangements. Kudos, too, to Atherton's clever marshalling of a large cast to contain the sprawling narrative and a vocally talented ensemble"
