Review

 

Reading the interview with Nigel Triffitt says it all, "hated the original show thought it was tacky", thinks people who repeatedly see the film need to "get a life", doesn't know Rocky can't sing till his rehearsal:

INTERVIEW

 

An African American Rocky who couldn't sing, re-orchestrations that castrated the songs and an over the top Nigel Triffit set design made this production a hollow affair. Although an extravaganza for the eyes, the script was made fun of and parody was taken to extremes.

The costuming was reworked into lavish colourful versions of their Sue Blane origins. The original idea of the audience using their imaginations to fill in the backdrops and settings was not needed as this production had a castle on stage, a car, and a rocket that took off.

The cast were a grouping of Australian TV, mostly soap, stars.
