Beauty and the Beast (The Playhouse, Harlow)
5 Jocelyn kurtulaj
5th Jan 17: Loved this show! My whole family couldn't stop laughing! High energy performance with great performances and staging. Very entertaining for all my family & loads of audience involvement. Would definitely recommend it!

26th Dec 16: Poor show this year. capt hook went off script far too much. The jokes were in poor taste, sometimes discriminatory. Very disappointing.

Hello Again - A Tribute to Neil Diamond (Princess Theatre, Torquay)
5 Hello Again Neil Diamond
22nd Dec 16: Tribute shows, Homages, Celebrations ? There are just so many. Some good, some bad, they come and go in and out of vogue, much like the artist(s) that they are emulating. A very select few however, are just so good, that they become a sensation in their own right, thus becoming a must see, the only show for fans of the original artist. Hello Again Neil Diamond most certainly falls into this category, with a cast that can proudly boast past credits to include Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Take That, Spice Girls, Bay City Rollers, Freddie Starr, Culture Club and many more, its no surprise that this show has accelerated itself to becoming the talk of theatre land. It's also no surprise, when you consider the subject matter...One Neil Leslie Diamond, born a star on 24th January 1941, in his early years an in-house songwriter at the now legendary Brill Building, scoring his first solo hit in 1966. 50 years and over 125 Million records sold, his ongoing story carved deep in the annals of music history is one that must be told. Enter Brooklyn Creed & The Salvation Band, dubbed The Voice of Diamond, Brooklyn carries huge expectation on his shoulders. Born with an uncannily similar timbre to his idol and an exceptional guitar player, Brooklyn soon sends any competition running home to their mothers.í The Salvation Band, great friends and one of the hottest live bands in the UK, coupled with Brooklyn Horns* and Ascending Strings* hand pick specific live and studio versions of Diamondís performances under the critical gaze of MD/ Keyboard player Scott Newstead to ensure absolute authenticity. Show creators/ producers, Darren Bazzoni and Juanita Diaz were absolutely insistent in keeping quality and consistency paramount throughout, employing one of the best Production teams in the business. Sound, lights & video are in safe hands with the crew responsible for such theatre smashes such as The Carpenters Story, Letís Hang On and The Illegal Eagles. Evocative imagery, video and narration enhance the magic, as the show tells the spellbinding story of how a poor boy from Brooklyn NYC rose and rose to become one of the biggest stars on the planet. From The Bang Years to the present day youíll soon find yourself singing along to all the hits including Sweet Caroline, Crackliní Rosie, Forever in Blue Jeans, Song Sung Blue, Hello Again, Love on the Rocks, America and many more. * Brooklyn Horns and Ascending Strings, on selected shows only.
Peter Pan (Chichester Festival Theatre, Chichester)
5 Gerry Croydon
22nd Dec 16: Although let down by using an early version of the script, and a truly underwhelming use of consume design more akin to a primary school play than a prestigious theatre, the performance was rescued by some stand out performances. Most notably Peter pan who injected a wide range on emotions into his performance. The ability to take the entire audience with him is certainly unique. However the stand out performance was from Wendy. Simply breathtaking, engaging the audience throughout, leading her peers and a flawless voice unrivalled by anyone away from the west end and Broadway, surely where this hugely talented young lady is heading.

Beauty and the Beast (The Playhouse, Harlow)
1 Emily Archer
11th Dec 16: This was rubbish! I only gave 1 star as 0 wasn't an option! We ended up leaving in the interval as we were bored and confused! There was no link to Beauty and the Beast what so ever and we found it hard to follow as it jumped from circus acts to Shakespeare turning up then Santa rocked up too! Very weird, wouldn't recommend.
Sister Act (Malvern Theatres, Malvern)
2 Nicola
9th Dec 16: Was really disappointed none if the songs were out of the recognised film acting very poor and cheesy
Sister Act (Malvern Theatres, Malvern)
1 Graham Bennett
9th Dec 16: Dreadful show. Zero entertainment value. Poor singers and poor actors. Choreography, what choreography. We left at the interval couldn't stand any more. Absolutely awful show!
Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain (Colston Hall, Bristol)

8th Dec 16: Great fun ... there may be calls for more gender blind casting in London but it was here is spades. Enthusiastic cast leads to an enthusiastic audience ;-)
Mr Popper's Penguins (Minerva Theatre, Chichester)
5 Grandma Barbwa
8th Dec 16: 2 and a half year old totally enthralled from start to finish. Great show!
Sister Act (Malvern Theatres, Malvern)
1 Mrs B
8th Dec 16: It's a shame that there isn't the option of no stars! This was the worst show we've ever been to. The singing was dire, acting was awful. We were looking forward to an upbeat show to get us into the Christmas spirit. This left us feeling miserable and financially ripped off.
