Really nice musical, i was really impressed! I've read the book and for sure something is missing but i like the way they have interpreted the story and transformed in a musical. Nice music, beautiful backgrounds, absolutely to see!

A fantastic production and brilliantly performed. I was genuinely moved by the performance. I have seen Phantom, Chicago, West Side Story and this was equally enjoyable - I will have the tunes in my head for months........!!

When i saw the show last year i sat in the front stalls a great seat in the middle of the row I have seen this musical several times which has some classic songs and it gets better each time I see it, with talented performers in an emotional situation which would be hard for the audience not to get...

I had never been to a professional musical before and I think I just attended the best. The cast was terrific and the sets were beyond my expectations. Much of the music sent chills through me. Would go again and highly recommend!

Great performance and location, but if you are female, be first in the toilet queue at the intermission (or pop to a pub next door as will be quicker)

I have seen this performance in a lot of countries but something felt nostalgic watching it in London. The theatre was brilliant and the performance amazing.

If you love listening to talented voices and emotional music, this is the show you've got to see. There are so many amazingly written songs and clever use of music, you will not be disappointed. The staff are friendly and the bar was great, too. Dress ring was the best option for view ;)

I had waited 20 years to see this show and it definitely exceeded all of my expectations. From the moment the curtain went up I was enthralled. The music and staging were fantastic as were the performers. Cannot wait to go again.

You know a show is good when the tickets are hard to come by. We booked the show a few months ago when most of the good seats had already been sold. When we went, every seat had gone. The show runs for 2 hours 50 minutes, but the time goes so quickly. The performance has you gripped every second.... More
