REVIEW: Crazy For You, at Mayflower Theatre in Southampton

Have your say

Sally Morgan is very good at what she does.

Whether you choose to believe in her psychic abilities or not, she certainly knew how to keep the packed house at the guildhall entertained last night.

Having never seen this type of show before, I was unsure of what to expect, but the evening had a formulaic quality to it. Sally started by explaining how she received her messages, and that these, at times, could seem a bit random.

When an audience member heard a name or reference that they thought related to them, they were encouraged to raise a hand. They were then given a microphone and the on-stage camera projected them onto a large screen behind Sally. Several people seemed genuinely moved by the messages they received, but an awful lot of what was offered by Sally was received with blank looks, and a shake of the head.

I found the first half of the show entertaining, but lost interest during the second and it seemed that some of my fellow audience members felt the same way. I went along to the show with an open mind, and was glad I went. With her down-to-earth nature, Sally Morgan is very entertaining.
