5 Josie
17th Oct 19: wonderfully told story with amazing characters, the lions brilliantly brought to life by the excellent puppetry. Thankyou
The Last King of Scotland (Sheffield Theatres, Sheffield)
5 JW.
13th Oct 19: Very well acted.story easy to follow. characters life like, would recommend the play to anyone,not children though bit hard hitting.
Jane McDonald
5 sandra gray
7th Oct 19: the best loves her fans as much as we love her xxx
Hormonal Housewives
1 Anon
6th Oct 19: I’m sorry this was rubbish. Clearly been written by a man. More circa 1950s housewives struggling with ‘ husband troubles ‘ than relevant to a an adult woman mother grandmother living in 2019 could not recommend it. Though the girls on stage tried very hard.
Tabby McTat (Dorking Halls, Dorking)
1 James k
3rd Oct 19: The show could be brilliant, the set and costumes are far too basic for young ones, along with the fact that there are 4 actors that interchange parts all the way through who are only identifiable by the hat they are wearing. No one was dressed up as a cat but children are supposed to imagine a cat by a hat which then is passed to and played by another actor .. young ones just cannot follow what’s going on... a disappointment...
Amatory Asylum (General, Outer London)
5 Robin Goldmen
21st Sep 19: Ive been to EVERY show that House of Kittens do and they are always amazing! Taking my girlfriend as an anniversary present on Oct 11th SO EXCITED!!!
The Exorcist
5 Paul storrie
19th Sep 19: The EXORCIST Glasgow Theatre Royal was well impressed with the show they had them jumping screaming and also laughing in the aisles brilliant cast would recommend it to anyone
One Man, Two Guvnors
5 JuJo
10th Sep 19: Thoroughly recommend the Derby/Hornchurch production. Saw it in Derby on Monday eve and have booked again for next week. Well done all, brill night out.
Malory Towers (Arts Theatre, Cambridge)
1 Sue
7th Sep 19: Very disappointed with portrayal of the schoolgirls in Malory Towers. Not how one envisaged them from teading the books!
Zog (Milton Keynes Theatre, Milton Keynes)
1 Simone
31st Aug 19: I wish I'd seen the reviews before parting with £70 for a GCSE drama student production (at best). There is little to no similarities with the book itself. The production is extremely misleading to have been sold as a story about 'Zog' and the costumes and props looked like they were picked up at your local Wilkos store. Very disappointed!
Minor Disruptions (The Fringe Office, Edinburgh)
5 Ann Baker
13th Aug 19: Completely engaging and great fun. Katie draws you in as both viewer and participant in this clever, witty and thought provoking show. Definitely one to be seen and a talent to be snapped up and nurtured.
The Johnny Cash Roadshow (New Victoria Theatre, Woking)
5 John munn
27th Jul 19: Easily the best Cash show I've ever seen, it's that good I don't think there is room for much improvement apart from not being a long enough show. A great evening out.
Be Bop A Lula
5 Ian Mckay
27th Jul 19: Saw this show at Gaiety Theatre , Ayr . Standing ovation .
The Actor's Nightmare (Park Theatre, Inner London)
1 Eli
18th Jul 19: Absolute shite. I can forgive the cost of the ticket, but not the sheer mind numbing crap I had to sit through for 90+ minutes.
Dirty Dancing (Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol)
1 Tracey
4th Jul 19: complete rubbish performance
James Acaster (Town Hall, Cheltenham)
1 Brad
2nd Jul 19: Sent to Cheltenham Town Hall.....Hello, What on Earth happened to James last night?????? A heckle and the show went down the toilet ! We know what he's like usually, seen all his TV and Netflix shows.... Bought 3 tickets for ourselves and son (23) (our son's Christmas Present !!) Row MM 7,8 & 9 Obviously you book him based on his track record, which is great, but... I'd be interested to hear if you've had any similar comments. If you're a stand up....at some point you will get heckled.....and....you'd better be able to deal with it....put it behind you if you can't capitalise on it. Some comedians thrive on it....Jimmy Carr for example, but either; ignore it and carry on, or use it to get more laughs !!! I'll be looking online to see if there are any reviews. I can't believe it was just the three of us who felt the same way! Really disappointing evening :( Kind Regards, Brad
Calendar Girls - The Musical (Theatre Royal, Nottingham)
4 Jan Hortor
27th Jun 19: Wonderful entertainment, funny, sad, well cast, good songs, lovely music, a true feel good factor production. Well done to all concerned
Zog
1 Mr Ripoff
16th Jun 19: If you have read Zog then this production just doesn’t make sense. Absolute rubbish from the start to the end and everyone felt ripped off and disappointed. Doesn’t deserve to have any affiliation with the much loved Zog story. Avoid, avoid, avoid
Rock of Ages (Haymarket Theatre, Leicester)
5 Jane Grace
13th Jun 19: Absolutely brilliant show. Fantastic singing and dancing
Rock of Ages (Haymarket Theatre, Leicester)
2 Jane martin
12th Jun 19: Very disappointed...left at the interval...leicester.
