Hottest day of the year in July and no air conditioning during the first half! Small bottles of water on sale at £1.80 each! Captive market. Very clever move. Must take my own water next time......

I was really looking forward to this show but was completely underwhelmed by it and did not get the feelgood factor that musical performances usually offer. I found the frequent use of the f-word totally unnecessary, the falsetto of the pseudo Frankie Valli quite shrill at times and the American accent of one participant shaky at best. What a shame....

My wife and I thorough enjoyed the performance, knowing most of the songs of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons made it even more enjoyable.

Our enjoyment of this show was tainted by the ridiculously excessive heat in the theatre. It isnt cheap to go there and I expect climate control-whether its very hot or very cold outside.
