This has to be the most emotionally packed musical I have ever seen. . . The story of a little matchgirl (morse) who lives with her alcoholic dad (daltrey) and his piece of stuff (twiggy). She spends all day living on the streets selling matches when one day she meets a gorgeous guy (nash). They have this sort-of friendship that she would like to take further. . . Until one night, she lights one of her matches to find that it takes her into a different world. . . I won't spoil the ending but it's extremely emotional. There are some great tunes including "Mistletoe & Wine" (pre cliff richard!!!), "Me 'ome ain't nothin' like yours" and "Arthur's me name". . . It is a fantastic musical that would be great for an amatuer company to put on as it is fantastically basic. Natalie Morse is very powerful to the storyline; playing the lead and making me cry over the whole ending!!! This is a must!
