...........................................................................................................

This production is a particular triumph for Kelley Abbey .
We knew she could sing and dance - she gave stunning proof of that in the 1997 production of Sweet Charity , and then in West Side Story - and as Carmen in Fame she sizzles with non-stop energy that catches and keeps the eye wherever she is on stage.
But this production of Fame represents her debut as a choreographer, and the dance sequences are the show's outstanding strength.
They are tough, fast, cheeky and street-smart, reminding us of earlier shows like West Side Story , but putting a contemporary mark on line dances by borrowing from rap and rave self-expression.

The Age - 31 December 1999
