REVIEW: Vision of You in Concert – Crazy Coqs

“…a beautiful, moving and honest portrayal of how love grows and changes over time”

West End Theatre Guide

Musical theatre stars, Rob Fowler and Sharon Sexton performed their album, Vision of You, at Brasserie Zedel’s cabaret room, The Crazy Coqs. The inspiration for this album was the backstory Fowler and Sexton imagined for Falco and Sloane, the husband and wife characters they created and originated in Jim Steinman’s Bat Out of Hell, which closed at the Dominion Theatre in January 2019 after runs in Toronto, the London Coliseum and Manchester. This intimate venue provided the perfect setting for the audience to gain a unique insight into how stage performers develop their characters’ stories and personalities, in this case, how Rob and Sharon went about “finding the Falcos”.

This performance of Vision of You was a beautiful, moving and honest portrayal of how love grows and changes over time, and the learning curve on which everyone must embark to make it last. With a wonderful song-list, including Phil Collins’s ‘Against All Odds’ and Lady Antebellum’s ‘Need You Know’ and some original music, this performance was captivating and masterfully performed by the mature, rich, powerhouse voices of Fowler and Sexton.

Peterborough is currently the last scheduled performance of the album on 19th March, which will feature a live band and guest performances from fellow Bat Out of Hell stars, understudy Raven and Strat, Georgia Carling and Simon Gordon (to book tickets, click here). Copies of the album are available to buy via Sharon Sexton’s Facebook page.

We adored this performance, and feel Rob and Sharon’s Vision of You is the perfect illustration of the wonderful results which can be achieved when musical theatre stars collaborate and produce an album – particularly those with as strong a chemistry as these two!
