Phil (22Dec11): Great show but I was cursed with sitting amongst some real idiots who insisted on chatting throughout despite requests to stop - not the shows fault but almost spoiled the evening. Show=5star, Audience=1star
Sam (22Dec11): What a fabulous, large-scale production. just occasionally I would have prefered it to be smaller but that's probably just me ... excellent show!
