Bruce-Smith regales us with side-splitting stories about looking for that “Quintessential Rom-Com Moment”. From his first kiss to his glimpses of fame and all the Tigers and Asparagus Rolls that came in between; the stories are masterfully crafted. Enough detail to put us in the place with him as he talks about how much Wellingtonians love their city, but not a word goes to waste. The way he bounds and dances around the stage is spellbinding. A casual flick of the wrist and an inane grin is all we need to be bent over laughing. It’s a more physically active Bruce-Smith than we’ve seen before on stage and it suits him well.
Near the end of the show, he tells us that he believes that everything that has happened in life is for a reason and though it seems spontaneous and often seems to go against the plan, that’s ok! Nobody knows what’s going to happen but it helps to have a idea of where you’re heading and why not have a plan as crazy as marrying Taylor Swift?
Bruce-Smith, the man with the master plan, made magic happen in this show. A charming, if a little camp at times, host with endearing stories that reveal as much about himself as the basic human desires to find love. Personally, I think Swift would be silly not to accept. And you’d be silly to not try to get tickets to a show so good that it’s having a sell out season.
