One thought on “New Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music”

  1. Went with the family this week on 27/8/08. The show was great… apart from Simon MacCorkindale. His acting was fine but his singing was dreadful! people around were all giggling at it, and the interval was filled with everyones comments on his awful singing. Couldn’t wait for him to sing again for a laugh! There was also no chemistry between him and Summer. Shame, it spoilt an otherwise excellent show. After all the trouble poor Connie went to to secure a singing role, he seems to have jumped in through the back door. Stick to only acting Simon!
