Sunny Afternoon Customer Reviews

24 April

The storyline is a very pessimistic one. Many lows few highs. The narrative may be close to the truth but save for the now ubiquitous Mama Mia style finale it was too long and did not leave us with a flooring feeling on exit. Very average!

5 April

Fantastic show! If you are a Kinks fan, or have any interest in the 60's music scene, you won't be disappointed.

3 April

Excellent from start to finish. Good performance of Kinks songs

21 March

An entertaining and informative play about the Kinks. Gave me insight into the soul of Great Britain!

25 February

I was really great. Just enough story, just enough music
