USER (22Dec04): Paul Fowler is one of the few people I have seen to not think this brilliant. This must be the best musical ever written. There are some truly unforgettable moments which I will not go through at the moment as it would spoil the show for prospective viewers. Lee Evans, Nathan Lane and Leigh Zimmerman all show tremendous skill at acting this play in the previews with almost everyone up for the standing ovation at the end. At some points during the play I was howling with laughter - it must have been the best show i have ever seen. If you can, you must try and get tickets before January 8th when Nathan Lane finishes. Absolutely UNMISSABLE! Jeremy Wilkinson

USER (07Nov04): Contains something to offend everybody! Without doubt the funniest thing I`ve ever seen in a theatre. Wonderful
USER (03Nov04): One of the best evenings without question! The stagecraft of the entire cast is superb. Evenly paced with impeccable timing and more lines than one could possibly absorb in the first viewing. Nathan Lane,Leigh Zimmerman, Lee Evans,James Dreyfus, Conlith Hill and Nicolas Colicos are a delight to the senses. A must see and hope it runs for 20 years!
USER (01Nov04): Being a huge fan of the film I was a little apprehensive about seeing the stage version. My fears were laid to rest comprehensively in my most enjoyable theatre experience. The cast were superb, with Nathan Lane demonstrating a mastery of comic timing, and the laughter was non stop. A standing ovation greeted the wonderful cast at the close. Its a triumph, as they say. Don't miss this show!
USER (29Oct04): Easily the funniest musical I've ever seen and probably the best fun I've ever had in a theatre. As anticipated, Nathan Lane was brilliant but the revelation was Lee Evans who matched his co star. I thought parts of the film were a bit dull but that "Springtime for Hitler" made it a success. I've no such qualifications about the show which I watched with a permanent smile on my face. Buy tickets today or you'll be sorry!
