Reviews: Jimmy Osmond as Teen Angel in Grease at the Birmingham Hippodrome – May 29 – June 3, 2017

BRUM HOUR WORDPRESS
But the star of the night for me was Jimmy Osmond as Teen Angel who came on to huge applause. Being the youngest of the Osmond dynasty he is not resting on his laurels, he still has a wonderful singing voice and amazing stage presence. The only shame is, he is not on stage for very long but he certainly provoked a huge reaction from the audience.

EXPRESS AND STAR
Teen Angel – the imaginary advisor to Frenchie – is a great cameo role filled in this case by Jimmy Osmond. Osmond doesn’t take himself at all seriously, bringing outrageous levels of campness to his performance and stopping the show with Beauty School Dropout, putting any lingering memories of the squeaky Long Haired Lover from Liverpool firmly to bed with his warm and powerful voice.

A cameo from Jimmy Osmond, reprising his West End incarnation of Teen Angel was a crowd pleaser – bringing the house down before he’d even opened his mouth! However it was absolutely justified with a voice that spans decades and still makes women swoon!

THE GREAT BARR OBSERVER
Jimmy Osmond made a guest appearance as the Teen Angel, a role he has performed in the West End before. And despite only being on stage for one number, he got one of the biggest cheers of the night. He was cheese with a capital C, but was a huge hit with both the audience and the young cast who clearly loved having someone of his tenure among the ranks.

TWIT CELEB GOSSIP
Grease The Musical UK tour has a stellar cast, and for one song only Jimmy Osmond was the dreamy Teen Angel, hitting the high notes expected from the mesmerising ‘Beauty School Dropout’ song. He worked the audience after, but that’s to be expected, and in fact he was the only one to break character during the show.

REDBRICK.ME/CULTURE
Alongside the leading cast, the show features a star turn from Jimmy Osmond, who here fills the role of the Teen Angel, singing the now iconic ‘Beauty School Dropout’. The audience cheer and applaud as he begins to sing, and Osmond’s 50 or so years of show business experience mean he has many swooning and enthralled, working the audience for applause, whilst giving a brilliant vocal performance. It’s a clever bit of casting, and a fabulous moment in the show

BUM ON A SEAT WORDPRESS
Treat of the night comes from a cameo appearance by ‘Little’ Jimmy Osmond himself as a somewhat superannuated Teen Angel. Pure showbiz royalty, Osmond knows when to milk it, knows when to be cheesy – how dairy! His song brings the house down and such is his charisma and the fact that IT’S JIMMY OSMOND, we hardly notice the showgirls swanning around in true Las Vegas style.

BEHIND THE ARRAS
There is a Cameo, with a capital C, appearance of Jimmy Osmond as the Teen Angel. Now 54 Jimmy is a showman, milking the part for all it is worth and more, filling the stage with infectious fun in his silver suit and displaying a still fine singing voice creating a show within a show with Beauty School Dropout. He looked to be enjoying every minute and the audience loved him.

JIMMY OSMOND REVIEWS AS TEEN ANGEL IN GREASE AT THE BRISTOL HIPPODROME JUNE 5TH – JUNE 10TH 2017
CHOPSYBABY MAGAZINE
Teen Angel, Jimmy Osmond absolutely stole the show with his one and only number Beauty School Dropout. Not only did he rock his number vocally – what a performer! He knew exactly how to play the audience and it was a real shame when it was over.

A crowd favourite was Jimmy Osmond as the Teen Angel who sang ‘Beauty School Dropout’ – when he came on the audience went wild!

THE WESTON MERCURY
Callum Evans as bumbling, geeky Eugene was a surprise highlight, while Osmond (Teen Angel)received the best audience reaction of the night – and matched the expectation with an outstanding vocal performance.

It is, however, the appearance of Jimmy Osmond as Teen Angel that stopped the evening being all frowns – a consummate performer and showman his cameo really lifted the second act.

NORTH SOMERSET TIMES
And of course it was left to the global pop superstar that is Jimmy Osmond to completely steal the show with his stellar performance as Teen Angel and that he certainly did. I have to admit I was whooping with delight along with many of my fellow audience members at his hilarious playing up to the adoration of the crowd. Who knew at the age of five or six looking at stickers of the Osmonds next to ones of David Cassidy and Michael Jackson on my bedroom door that I would be watching ‘little’ Jimmy Osmond on stage one day?

COTSWOLD LIFE
Best of all? Maybe it’s my age – though I think the rest of the audience agreed – was Jimmy Osmond as Teen Angel. Here was a guy who was a teenager when I was a teenager; here is a guy who knows how to hold the audience in the palm of his slightly-wrinkly hand. So go along for a fab singsong. You won’t be bored. Go along for Jimmy Osmond.

SWINDON ADVERTISER
American singer Jimmy Osmond makes an appearance as the Teen Angel, after previously playing the role in the West End. He was clearly a hit with the audience, as he playfully flirted with them as they sang along with him.

CHEW VALLEY GAZETTE
In the second act the appearance of Jimmy Osmond again got the audience to feel that they had to join in. Now in his fifty-something year Jimmy proved that he can still hit those notes. In all I think the performance was great entertainment and a good family show.- Review by Alison Colston, General Manager of The Chew Valley & Wrington Vale

Donning a silver suit, special guest star Jimmy Osmond is also joyous as the suave Teen Angel and laps up the audiences’ cheers.

MATURE TIMES
We were expecting to see Jimmy Osmond’s Teen Angel appear earlier in the show but his performance was worth waiting for. When he finally appeared he brought a rousing response from the audience, which he thoroughly deserved. He certainly added a little bit more pizazz with his shiny silver outfit!

WILTSHIRE TIMES
There was no doubting who the audience had been waiting for when Teen Angel – Jimmy Osmond came on stage during Act 2 singing Beauty School Dropout to rapturous applause, silky smooth vocals and as youthful as ever – the star of the show.

The star turn of the show though was Jimmy Osmond, who wowed in his small cameo role as the cheesy yet enigmatic Teen Angel. He was clearly having a ball and so were the audience, as his natural charm, charisma and years in the business shone through. His 5 minutes on the stage whipped the crowd up into a frenzy and earned him the biggest cheers of the night.
