22nd Jul 16: A beautifully observed and wonderfully performed perspective on the eighties. The soundtrack, the script, the casting and the acting are all perfect - this is a real treat!
Queens of Syria

22nd Jul 16: Poignant and compelling presentation of anguish and anger, beautifully declaimed.
Let It Be (Theatre Royal, Brighton)
1 Bryan
18th Jul 16: We've never walked out of any show after 20 minutes, but this production (Brighton Theatre Royal 18 July)was truly awful. Excessively loud performances by a not very good tribute band to a backing track (spot the phantom harmonica on the 3rd number). A thoroughly dreadful evening - don't bother going!
Chaplin - The Charlie Chaplin Story (New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham)
1 Annette Camilleri
14th Jul 16: Went to see this performance this evening,walked out during the interval,worst show I have ever seen.poor stage set,lighting ,sound,couldn't call it singing more like screaming!!!! Seen better performance at amateur shows.wouldnt recommend anyone to see this show,money wasted

7th Jul 16: An amazing night in the theatre. Hard to believe none of the cast is over 19. Some wonderful voices and faultless singing. Well staged and well acted with a fabulous comic turn. This production knocks the filn into a cocked hat. You will laugh, you will cry. Brilliant

5 Bonnie Grindey
5th Jul 16: Superb fun! I'll admit I had no idea what to expect from a stage production of this much-loved TV show, but I wasn't let down. They did a fantastic job of adapting it for stage - the original cast members were brilliant! They added a delightful spark of humour mixing nicely with the main dramatic storyline. Anyone who says they left at the interval clearly have no taste! The whole audience thoroughly enjoyed it where I watched it - Buxton Opera House. If you loved the TV series you'll love this! Do not hesitate; it provides a pleasant transition into 1970's Heartbeat, answering some questions left open at the end of the series too!

Romeo and Juliet (St George's Hall, Liverpool)

3rd Jul 16: I was really looking forward to this. Firstlythere want enough seats but luckily for us not everyone turned up. We could hardly hear the actors was very muffled and low. Their footsteps were very clear as they were near the mics. Shakespeare is hated to learn so I felt sorry for the actors who put so much in to their performance's it was a real shame the audience couldnt hear them clearly. After the first act half of the audience didnt return, how sad. I hope the producer learn from this.

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!!!!
Thriller Live! (Princess Theatre, Torquay)

15th Jun 16: Fantastic show, amazing performers, by the end of the show I felt like I'd actually watched Michael in person. Thank you.

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 .
