User review by mike for Gordon Lightfoot
25th May 16: Knew he looked frail before I bought the tickets but was quite shocked by his appearance. He was very frail when moving about the stage.I had never seen him before and was really thankful to see him at last and his band were superb. but overall a sad experience
User review by David for Gordon Lightfoot
24th May 16: Was so looking forward to this having been a big fan in the seventies, but his diction let it down. Couldn't make out the words of the songs. Was a little better in the second half.
User review by Dale Storrie for Sean Lock - Keep It Light
21st May 16: From a "used to be a fan" this show is terrible.

User review by June for Jackie - The Musical
19th May 16: Loved it ... laughed and sang all night..
User review by David Perry for An Inspector Calls
19th May 16: Let down by some poor acting performances, I can't exonerate any of the performers, too much shouting and mood changes bordering on schizophrenic. The setting seems intent of being 'modern' but fails to impress. A disappointing evening.
User review by jean for Gordon Lightfoot
19th May 16: Gordon needs to retire,his voice has gone and someone needs to tell him was so looking forward to hearing him but left at the interval.Actually felt sorry for him
User review by Max Sanders for Travels With My Aunt
18th May 16: Attended the first night of this production at the Malvern Theatre last night and was extremely disappointed with this travesty of Graham Greenes wonderful novel. The actors in turn screech out their lines - as each has a bash at the characters - in the belief that the louder and progressively more camp the portrayal of Aunt Augusta the funnier it will be; wrong. The clue you are given as to whose turn it is to be playing the Aunt is the possession of pink cats eye spectacles which are held rather than worn. Henry is a character you should be able to warm to but as this is played by all the actors individually and sometimes at the same time it is difficult to form any bond with, as is so with all the characters the team attempt. The set, a bar, serves to portray everything from a train to cab to an apartment; you will need some imagination. The jokes were lame and badly delivered, the polite if not forced laughter from the audience was an acknowledgement of the attempt not the accomplishment. We lasted to the interval and surrendered all hope of improvement, preferring a stiffener at the bar to the tragedy that was occurring on stage. Cant put a minus star rating in so will have to put in one, although it doesn't deserve it.
User review by Elaine dunkley for Heartbeat
15th May 16: Was really looking forward to this saw it at Northampton a Saturday afternoon,very diadpointed poor story line and sorry I choose this missed my grandson footie final which would have been far more exciting 🤔
User review by Ursula for Pasha Kovalev - It's All About You
13th May 16: A great show, lots of fun making it a nice family evening. Tells a love story singing a good range of dances. Great singer, talented dancers, beautiful costumes and audience participation makes for an entertaining show.
User review by beryl williams for That's Entertainment
12th May 16: Brilliant show lucky seeing it on Manchester cos the overtones were the special guest
User review by Emma for Heartbeat
12th May 16: Afraid this just translate well to stage, story line was week and was just a bit boring. I did get a massive fit of giggles over the stuffed dog but don't think that was the intention. The actress playing Gina was good in her own right
User review by Meg for Jackie - The Musical
11th May 16: Fantastic. Great music and dancing. Very funny. Love it and wanted it to go on and on
User review by sharon howard for Heartbeat
10th May 16: Watched the show at Derngate, Northampton tonight. Really enjoyed it. Brilliant having two of the original cast in in it but they were all brilliant. The set was amazing. Didn't want it to end! e
User review by Morris Owen for The Solid Silver 60's Show
8th May 16: 8thMay16.Enjoyed every minute of the show (Nottingham)Not seen Dave Berry before live..What a fantastic artist, in fact they all were. If you get the chance to go to the show THEN GO.
User review by John Harper for The Solid Silver 60's Show
4th May 16: Saw the show at Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on 3rd May. Absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed the show. It had the whole audience on their feet clapping & singing along. Well done to all the acts. It combined nostalgia, talent & even some self deprecating humour from the acts who worked very hard but who obviously enjoyed themselves. The feel good factor amongst them all was obvious to see especially when they were all together on stage for the finale. I also can't praise the New Amen Corner's musicianship enough! Fantastic accompaniment to the various artistes. Well done to them all. I also want to know what medication Peter Noone is on!! He doesn't look much different now to what he did in the 60's! In fact he looks even better!!!!He makes the rest of us of a similar age look pretty sick!! LoL! Great show.

User review by Sally for Heartbeat
