The Space Between – A musical short by David Hunter and Caroline Kay

The Space Between is a short musical for the times we live in. Filmed entirely in a medium of zoom meetings and WhatsApp/FaceTime calls, as a young couple reflect on their broken relationship, first with their confidants, and then with each other.

The music is fun, and a good representation of modern musical theatre. The opening number in particular is sensationally written and delivered, and also has the strongest vocal – it is the best of the three numbers contained within the short – although all three are meaningful and entertaining.

The performances from Hunter and Kay are relatable, fun, and vocally very strong.

The key point to this work is that musical theatre (of a top quality) can still be made at this difficult time. We all miss it, and we all want to do what we can to help it financially survive, but this should stand to remind us that we can still feel the joy that hearing a great new musical undoubtedly brings.
