We booked tickets for £35 and got a good view. The seats were central, which I've found to be key for a good view but towards the back. Tim Minchin did an excellent job writing the lyrics and you do leave with the best songs stuck in your head! All the acting, singing and dancing were great, I particularly enjoyed... More

We LOVED this show. The music, choreography, message, performances... it was all stellar. We left and immediately got the soundtrack. Whether you've read the book or not, it's a totally enjoyable story on stage.

Equally memorable for kids and adults, great songs, staging and energy. You must go see it. Tim Minchin's lyrics are so witty and a perfect foil for Dahl's original story.

I've seen this show twice and throughout enjoyed each performance. With or without children this show transcend the bridge of the wonders of imagination through reading. A definite favourite.

Absolutely brilliant. It contained every aspect you would like to see in a show, eg singing, dancing, comedy. Action packed and so well performed. It would help to watch the film before going to enable to know the storyline. A show highly recommended.

One of the best shows in London, something for all the family in this one. The set design is ingenious & beautiful. The performances were top notch and the story gripping,funny and touching. Highly recommended-if you can get your hands on a ticket!
