The Last Tango
5 SUSAN COUGHLAN
29th Jun 16: ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS I HAVE EVER SEEN,ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS
The Sound of Music
5 Sally
29th Jun 16: An absolutely spell bound , breathtaking performance. So brilliantly performed and directed.I have never been to such a wonderful show out of at least 50. The scenery was fantastic, never noticing the magical ways each scene was moved. The lighting and sound and effects were stunning,eg the lightning too. The audeience I took with Arthritis Care group from Caernarfon, have since talked incessantly about the wonder of it all. The costumes were brilliant. The singing outstandingly superb. I can't find enough toworthy all of the show. I had to buy tickets at the end for my daughter and husband to go too and travel 80 miles to baby sit which I knew woud be so worthwhile. MThey both absolutely loved it too and we are still talking about it. Please o pleasepass on our congratulations and thanks to all the actors-everyone and the stage crew and the producer and Choreographer and all who gave us an everlasting memory of a wonderful show-BRILLIANT-from Sally &Co

27th Jun 16: As a big fan of the TV show we were extremely disappointed at this stage version and in fact left at the interval as it was so bad! The acting and script is so cringeworthy it makes amateur shows look good. As a keen theatre-goer I have never walked out on a show, but this was a struggle to even last to the interval! Do yourelf a favour and give this show a VERYwide berth - DREADFUL!!!!

15th Jun 16: Amazing..... The set design and set changes were excellent. The acting and producing and musical direction was first class. The singing was angelic strong moving emotional.... I thought the acting and direction for the captain was spot on .

13th Jun 16: this was so bad we left during the interval as did many other disappointed people. The singing was poor. It was a complete let down.

11th Jun 16: Absolute rubbish. I walked out after 20 minutes. Well done to the previous reviewers for lasting until the intervial. It was awful listening to 4 people screeching and shouting their lines. Whoever thought this was a good idea, needs to rethink their career. I would have put zero stars, but one is the least. Money wasted, an afternoon wasted. Very disappointed!

5th Jun 16: Do yourself a favour if you have booked tickets try to swap them for another show I have never been to such a wooden performance in wish I left at the interval but sadly stayed to the end hoping that it would get better unfortunately not not worth it if it was free

3rd Jun 16: Best girlie night out for ages - amazing
Celebrating Cilla
2 Andy
2nd Jun 16: Brenda, when she sang, was very good. Her comedy - which seemed to dominate the show-was laboured. At the Belgrade,Coventry,she had severoal conversations with members of the audience, people who she had met on her cruise ships. Shut them up,Brenda. Boring! As this was a Cilla Celebration, why finish with a Mary Hopkins song? The chap who supported had a reasonable voice but terrible comic timing. He seemed very amateurish. This had potential but didn't live up to expectations. Very much a club act.we wanted more Cilia songs.

29th May 16: Went with great expectations which were not met. The smallest audience which I have ever witnessed at Newcastle Theatre Royal, which was even smaller after the interval.
