WE’VE had One Night in Istanbul, Beating Berlusconi, Reds and Blues – so does Liverpool need another production about LFC’s history?
As one of the characters in You’ll Never Walk Alone puts it: “The rest of the country might call us over-senti-mental . . . ”
Set at the funeral of Thomas Kopite Kelly, family members look back at the Liverpool fan’s life and his club’s history.
From its establishment to Kenny Dalglish’s reappointment, the characters portray each era through songs, costume changes and footage on a floor-to-ceiling screen.
The style of each song matches the time in history being remembered.
For Liverpool FC’s relegation in 1954, actor Anthony Watson channels a club singer for a track entitled Have you heard the news? The Reds have got the Blues.
To celebrate the Reds’ 70s success in Europe, Status Quo’s famous number is adapted to Scousers All Over the World.
The production could easily get messy zipping between songs, eras, props and the incorporation of the big screen but those involved pull it off .
