It was one of the best shows I have ever seen. Amazing cast, wonderful songs. It is not to be missed.

“Brilliant but not quite up to the hype.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

This show is up for 13 Tonys (against Matilda's 12) and is a very good show. An outstanding pivotal performance by Billy Porter as Lola and a very good one by Stark Sands as the leading man are the features of the show. The Cyndi Lauper score is nice but unmemorable. The Harvey Fierstein script is funny and well crafted but had the odd grating moment for a Brit (some odd phrases) - but the worst is the variable accents, ranging from good (Mr Piper and Mr Sands) through ok (Miss Ashford) to the truly awful "Dick van Dyke" (Ms Carvajal's being by some margin the worst). If the show transfers to the West End at some point and it does deserve to then a Cast transfer should only be partially considered! Ultimately though in spite of the accents it is a very good show, just not the great one that 13 nominations might lead you to believe.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I liked the movie when I saw it years ago. Cyndi Lauper's music took a sweet story and rocked it. Put this on your list before it wins a Tony and becomes impossible to get tickets!

“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This high energy show comes alive whenever "Lola" is on. Terrific set design. This is the one musical you should see.
