“Great story, music and actors”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

A thoroughly enjoyable experience. We wanted to see a play that was "English" and none is more English than this story.

“Great show, you'll laugh and cry”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

What a wonderful show. We saw it at the Victoria Theater (near Picadilly station). The venue is nice, sort of short on bathrooms, but it's an older building, so understandable. You can pre-order drinks for the interval -- highly recommended, it saves a line. The cast were amazing. We loved every moment of this show. The young man who played Billy was just awesome...good dancer and singer. A very uplifting story that will have you laughing one minute, crying the next. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Really great show, went with son, 10 years old. A good and touching story about a bot that wants to become a dancer. Song, dance, step, acting, laughter, sadnes, seriousity, sorrow - the play contains some of it all. Had some really enjoyable hours at the teater. My son as well, even if he does'nt speak english so well yet. Happy we went, absolutely recommendable.
