“Great choice, we loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Booked this show for a London trip between Christmas and New Year and it was a great choice. The story line was cleverly put togther to showcase a huge amount of 60's classics which were played and sung by the cast themselves - perfectly! We loved it and the audience are encouraged to join in so there was a lot of toe-tapping and clapping, even some standing in the aisles! Brilliant, well worth the ticket price, and the Wyndam Theatre is beautiful.

“Real fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have been to see this show twice and on both occassions I loved it. The show has a good story, not great but good, The music is fantastic, that more than makes up for the story. I would say the younger generation probably wouldnt know the music so much so probably wouldnt enjoy it as it should be enjoyed. If you remember Roy Orbson and the like, you will love this show. It has a real feel good atmosphere. Lots of the audience get up and dance in the isles and in thier seats. Its just so foot tapping. The cast are full of energy, and they need it, make it seem like its the very first time they performed it. Catch this show before its too late.

“Great evening out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Went to see this show last Saturday and had such a good time. The music was upbeat and you simply couldn't help but sing along to all the favourites. The show is quite humorous and all the cast seem to be having a ball! There is a story too and I would say that all ages could enjoy it, but particularly those who remember the music from the 60's ( or their parents playing it anyway). Would suggest you go and see it if you can whilst it is still on.

“Catch it before it finishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Feelgood show now at the Wyndham theatre.

Show is lively with lots of 60's singalong toe-tapping songs which you are bound to recognise. Cast are energetic and enthusiastic with great use made of the versatile set. A real highlight of our trip to London.

“Oh Let's twist again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I wasn't born in that era but I really enjoyed the show. The vibes were great, and of course the teenage rage, friendship, puppy love, competition, etc, these are all most of us could relate to. There are plenty of sing-a-long and even dance-a-long moments. This musical won't be anywhere in those top 10 musical lists, but it certainly provides an enjoyable, relaxing and fun time for everyone there.
