If I could only use one word to describe this show, it would be ‘heart’.
Danny Cashmore has it in spades and it absolutely shines through when he is performing. Even with a small but appreciative crowd, Danny still gave a show worthy of a full house and rightly so.
There was a great range of musical theatre classics sung throughout the evening, with many of them suiting Danny’s voice beautifully (Hushabye Mountain a particular highlight). As Danny himself mentioned in the show, he completely embodies the characters whose songs he is performing. I would have liked Danny to showcase ‘himself’ a little more as he is a tenacious and dedicated performer with so much to offer.
As the evening came to a close, I feel we all got to know Danny a little better and he relaxed into the performance even more. I left the theatre rooting for him as he regaled us with his hopes, fears and ambitions for the future. Danny is a star in the making and I really hope he always keeps his heart.
