A Queenly afternoon


It was with some trepidation that I returned to see a musical at Newcastle Theatre Royal after seeing what I consider the worst musical I’ve ever seen – Les Miserables.  Today’s offering was the Queen musical  ‘We will rock you.’ Of course I knew all the songs due to their fame. I was immediately hooked when it started with ‘Radio Gaga’ with slightly different lyrics to suit the narrative.  As for the story, I thought it was quite relevant to the state of pop music today. I could empathize with the main characters and their plight. I enjoyed the witticisms strewn throughout the performance as the cast went through their parts with obvious enjoyment. The customs were in some cases, extraordinary; the singing, enthusiastic and well sung, but it was the stage set, for me that really caught my attention  – constantly changing and inventive.  So, from seeing the worst musical, I would consider this the best I’ve seen. Absolutely a treat for the ears and eyes!We-will-rock-you

About George Hutton Hunter Contemporary Artist

Contemporary artist (paintings, drawings,sculpture, music, writer) living in Newcastle upon Tyne. I’m a self taught artist born in Ryton, but now live and works in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I’ve taken part in joint exhibitions in Paris, New York, London, Hong Kong and Newcastle. My view of any kind of art is that it should leave an impression, whether it is good or bad is up to the individual. I think my style of painting and drawing is about colours and shapes and how they interact. I mainly paint acrylics or with spray paint, occasionally oils, inks, watercolours, mixed media plus glass paint on sheet glass. I also draw using oil and chalk pastels plus watercolour pencils. I use a variety of objects to paint such as blocks of wood, strips of paper, my fingers and of course, brushes. I also produce small sculptural artworks, write prose and short stories, plus create electronic music on Sound Cloud under the name 'diTempli'. I am also an amateur musician playing mainly the Charango, Ukulele and Guitar. My artwork can be found on a number of websites around the world but can also be purchased also from myself at www.ghunterartist.co.uk.
