"7 Brides" - I approached with trepidation, but brilliant! How they've freshened up this old stalwart. Laura Pitt-Pulford wonderful in the lead, holding it all together, feminine but steely. What a company. At least fourteen ballet-trained male dancers as the brothers and suitors - what grace, swing and athleticism. What creative firepower: Incredible choreography, sparkling orchestrations, everybody performing to the... More

We saw Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, one of our favorite movies. Despite being a small stage, the case did a nice job of trying to capture the energy of Michael Kidd's original movie choreography. The weak spot of the cast was the person who played Adam Pontipee. Great seats, though bring a jacket because it gets cool at night

Having just enjoyed a marvelous production of Seven Brides for Seven brothers I thought it time I added a review for this fabulous theatre. Having been going there for over 30 years now to concerts and plays I have never had a bad evening there. Ok, so well 2 years ago it rained and that show didn't take place but... More

There are few better places to be on a beautiful summer night than at the Open Air at Regent's Park. Over the years the seating and dining offers have been vastly improved. Ticket prices reflect a lot of these changes but the productions are even better - really first class theatre and amazing venue.

Seven brides for seven brothers is the fourth show we have seen here & once again we had a fabulous experience. A definite 'must do' for the whole family.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers wowed at every turn - a show filled with exuberance and fun - sensational. Mind you, we were very lucky indeed with the weather.

Wonderful show. Such talented dancers and singers and excellent orchestra. Picturesque setting. Good sound definitely not overamplified as a lot of performances are these days. Its better to sit as near the centre as possible , close to the back row, to get a good overall view of the whole performance. The evening performance is preferable to a matinee..prettier setting...
