Musical review: Innamorati by Toy Factory Productions

It is a tale that has been done to death: An aspiring musician wants to make it big, but en route to stardom has to battle rejection, misunderstanding and self-doubt.

Toy Factory Productions' Innamorati takes this prosaic formula, and multiplies it sevenfold.

The result is a production which suffocates under the weight of its own ambition. Each character does not have the space to develop into anything more than a skimpy cardboard caricature, which is a pity given the potential of some of their stories.
