Review by Robin Strapp
The mission to achieve the body beautiful has become an obsession for many people who religiously attend the gym in the quest for the perfect physique.
For the members of 247GYM obsessed with achieving the impeccable figure, things have gone out of control. Their star gym user 24601—echoes of Les Mis—has returned much to the annoyance and jealousy of the rest of the gym members.
The cast performs with high energy and the choreography is demanding—they must be exhausted by the end.
There are great comic touches and the music bounces along without any real stand out numbers.
Various rooms are visited where Botox injections, liposuction, steroids, and protein are delivered but the musical seems to lack cohesion and is rather a series of disconnected sketches.
