We went to see the Benidorm Live show in Aberdeen at the weekend. I really wasn't sure what to expect, but ended up enjoying it immensely. There are some brilliant laugh-out-loud moments, such as Mateo's dismal attempt at seduction and Gay Derek pledging his love for Kenneth. The whole performance seemed very slick, from the coordination of the background artistes to the changing of the stage dressings between scenes.
None of the cast fluffed a single word, but there was a slight wardrobe malfunction - near the end of the act where Derek expresses his attraction to Kenneth, the actor playing Derek (Damian Williams) tried three times to do up his trousers but the button kept popping open. In the end, he had to hold them up and sort of waddle about until the end of the scene - you could tell that Tony Maudsley was trying desperately not to laugh. The beauty of a live show I guess.
I believe the tour will continue into late April - I highly recommend it folks.
