Tim Curry showcase
9 July 2004 | by (Stockport, England) – See all my reviews

This funny crime caper drama deserves wider airing. The made-for-British-television drama showcases the best of Tim Curry's mercurial talents, combining humour, parody, music and acting to create a delightful entertainment as a singing cabbie. Mr Curry has not always been a "comedy hood/villain" parody of himself as he appears in his more recent cameo performances (i.e. dating from Home Alone 2). Many fans of the Rocky Horror Picture Show will delight in seeing the Curry charm work in a smaller scale, more subtle music-focused piece of theatre.
