Escaped Alone
5 jim
24th Mar 17: Absolutely loved it - brilliantly acted, beautifully writtem
Southern Baptist Sissies (Above the Stag Theatre, Inner London)
5 jim
22nd Mar 17: An amazing and moving experience - beautifully written, directed and acted throughout. A story of prejudice that speaks beyond its immediate "sissie" topic.
Running Wild
5 Kate Smith
19th Mar 17: Stunning performance from the incredible Annika Whiston. Amazing puppetry, props and scenery. So glad I watched it.
Whitney - Queen of the Night (New Wimbledon Theatre, Outer London)
5 Lesley Wright
8th Mar 17: Absolutely fantastic! Had a great night. Great performance by Rebecca Freckleton . Would go and see again.
Dr Frankenstein
2 tony brotherton
23rd Feb 17: tries hard and fails on many levels not least the poor character portrayls and the lecturing dialogue
Evita (New Wimbledon Theatre, Outer London)
5 Sarah
22nd Feb 17: Excellent, Emma Hatton was a great Evita and me and my husband enjoyed it especially loving the solo girl
The Narnia Experience (St George's Hall, Liverpool)
1 Jane
21st Feb 17: Terrible. Amateurish
Eric Cantona (The Lowry, Salford)
1 Chandrika
21st Feb 17: I saw this show at BIC in Bournemouth. show was supposed to start at 7.30, comedian (if you can call him that came on at 8.00 for 15 mins, then proceeded to do an auction for next 15 mins. Then we had 30 minute break. Eric came on stage at 9.00. I love him but the interviewer was rubbish, seemed scared of him, didn't seem prepared. Eric was on stage for 45 mins, 20 mins max on football rest on films, life etc. Questions from audience for 10 mins which included "I love you Eric" "Say the seagulls quote in French cos I love your accent" "Loved your goal against Liverpool". Not at all professional He is the King and needs better servants to present him!!!
The MGM Story: The Magic of the Musical
5 Ruth Myerscough-jackopson
19th Feb 17: This was magical. I grew up watching MGM musicals and this brought so many of the best bits to life. The cast were magnificent, I would love to see them do the whole of singing in the rain together, such energy, stunning voices and perfect dramatic mood changes for all of the different songs. A perfect night out for any lover of old time musicals.
Sean Lock - Keep It Light (New Victoria Theatre, Woking)
1 Nick
16th Feb 17: The show will probably be cancelled. This has happened twice at Dorking Halls. He's more interested in money from TV appearances than people who are prepared to pay to go and see him. Complete idiot!
Blood Brothers (Southport Theatre, Southport)
5 Vic Mangan
15th Feb 17: I have grown up watching this musical since I was 13 and Con O'Neil was my first Mickey and I fell in love there and then in 1988 but tonight many shows and own experiences later I can honestly say that Sean Jones has given Con a run for his money! It was a given that Lyn Paul would be amazing hit for me the performance of Mickey and The Narrator are the deal breaker, and I was not disappointed Dean Chisnall was amazing and sometimes stole the show without saying a word a presence befitting to this role. An absolute pleasure to watch!
CBeebies Treasure Island
1 Tara webster
12th Feb 17: Shame I can't give no stars. What a load of rubbish. Got drawn in through false advertising made to look as though it was a CBeebies official spotbots show. It consisted of a three man comedy act who had done bits on spot bots and had been on Justin's house twice !!!! Stars of CBeebies I think not. We walked out at half time so did most of the audience. Dreadful show. Avoid.
CBeebies Treasure Island
1 Sarah Farrar
11th Feb 17: This is the only show we've ever taken or daughtersomething to that they have asked to leave just over half way through. Absolutely awful. The advertising suggests that it is a cbeebies production which it certainly wasn't. The'plot' was completely random, veering from one boring scene to another and never really getting anywhere. The scenery and staging were shocking and the whole thing left our daughters confused and bored. The only positive parts involved the mouse and Wendy but they appeared to have no link what so ever to the actual treasure island story although they were on for almost an hour. Avoid.
CBeebies Treasure Island (Winter Gardens and Opera House Theatre, Blackpool)
1 Barbara Calvert
11th Feb 17: I took my son his wife and 2 girls to CBeebies treasure island. We left at half time along with many others in the audience. The writer of the script and the cast were unaware of the audience they were playing to. References were made to Cliff Richard and Donald Trump. Pre school children would not have any interest in that. Most children were bored with intense dialogue rather than singing etc. Very disappointed as this was a birthday treat. I would be obliged if you could you would refund me my money. This was nothing like what was advertised. Regards Barbara

You Win Again - the Story of the Bee Gees
4 Bob Angles
7th Feb 17: We saw this show in Bournemouth. I love musicals and this was excellent. The narration was informative and linked with the music well. The three guys were incredible and every song was really close to the original. The girl who sang Celine Dion was so good my wife thought she was lip syncing.Shame I can't remember her name. Almost everybody in the theatre were up on their feet dancing by the end. It was a brilliant night. Thank you all.
Not Dead Enough (Milton Keynes Theatre, Milton Keynes)

3rd Feb 17: Absolutely superb very sinister and gripping. Shane Ritchie was very good playing a serious role, very impressed with the woman who played Belle the policewoman, almost thought she was a copper. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole performance
You Win Again - the Story of the Bee Gees
4 Stephen Wright
2nd Feb 17: What an excellent night it was, my wife and I thoroughly enjoy this show, it was both informative and entertaining, people were dancing in their seats and there was a brilliant atmosphere in the theatre. The 3 Bee gee guys were excellent and look and sound very much like the Gibb brothers with their beautiful harmonies set with the added benefit of beautiful dancers behind them and a tight live band giving the show great energy, but also there are some nice poignant moments of dialogue from Stigwood who tells the story of the Beegees between songs which was sensitively delivered.
You Win Again - the Story of the Bee Gees
5 Gemma Smith
2nd Feb 17: Having worked in the West End for 20 some years I went to the Opening Night of You Win Again unsure what to expect. Was it a tribute show or a musical? What it turned out to be was an extremely fun night out! How you can you not have a good night with such brilliant music being performed with so much enthusiasm. The brothers Gibb were portrayed acuratly although they seemed not to stay true to which brother sang which song originally. The narration, although wonderfully delivered left the audience from a musical high to a bit of a class room bump as it upset the momentum of the show to a degree. The dancers who unfortunately are not credited, worked hard all night producing an unwavering glamour and real show biz sparkle which complimented the three leading men wonderfully well. All in all You Win Again is a fabulous fun night so much so I've booked up to see it again!
