If you get a chance to see this show - take it! Great entertainment and audience participation - loved every minute (and haven't a clue how he made it work!)

“High Society”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We went to see this famous Cole Porter musical at the Derngate . It was definately a play of two halves. In Act 1 much of the dialogue and lyrics were imperspicuous and there were some flat notes from the male leads. The second Act was completely different with every word clear and comprehensible. Sophie Bould's singing in the part of Tracy was a delight and the chorus line were full of verve. The seats in the front row of the Upper Circle had plenty of leg room as long as you happened to be vertically challenged..

“Good theatre”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is actually two venues. The Derngate is the modern built theatre and the Royal is smaller and for me has the charm of bygone days

“A good night out”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I've been a few times now and always enjoyed it there. A lovely evening out for all the family or with your friends. Easy to find the place. Very close to the city center and restaurants.
