Dream Lover - The Bobby Darin Musical

'Dream Lover - The Bobby Darin Musical' tells the story of singer and entertainer Bobby Darin from his childhood, raised by a single mother, ex-showgirl, through his successful years as performer and screen actor and to his later years of ill health and addiction.

This musical goes beyond Darin's own work to cleverly incorporate other music and songs that illustrate the events portrayed on stage.

David Campbell is energetic and brilliant as Darin. His is a world class performance. There is terrific support from Marina Prior as Darin's mother and from the entire hard working ensemble. The big band provides excellent musical backing.

Highly recommended.
