Marc Elliott is the one cast member who seems to understand this and he completely subsumed himself in his dual roles of Thief and Reporter. Sinewy, handsome, bristling with electric sensuality in the first act, Elliott is superb. In some ways, his more complex turn as the lost Reporter, a vain, pretty and confused modern man is the superior performance. Both, though, are clever, thoughtful turns, and Elliott’s voice is equal to the demands of the score. He is proving to be a serious player in the field of musical theatre in London.
