The show was amazing. Acting was outstanding.

Barbara Kelman2nd September

Enjoyable and entertaining.

Elizabeth Lindley2nd September

Terrible direction. Trevor Nunn's awkward set and intrusive direction only detracted from this mediocre musical.

The Bridges Of Madison County at The Menier Chocolate Factory was stunning. I have read the book many times (and still cry every time), I have seen the film and I was looking forward to this production - it did not disappoint. I cried all over again for Francessca Johnson and Robert Kincaid. The whole cast were fantastic. Brilliant

Nataliya Kononenko28th August

Thank you!

Tracey Wilkes25th August

Well acted, sung and sympathetic to the book and film

Richard Perkins16th August

The performances were outstanding and I was hooked on every moment. The cast were a beautiful blend and had an equally strong presence on the stage. When I was told the play would be as long as it was, I had my reservations, but the first half was so gripping it felt timeless. not having seen the film and not knowing the plot I found the second half equally as gripping. Quite an emotional second half. Fabulous

James Johnson7th August

I thought that the direction and performances were wonderful. The music rose to emotional levels and reflected the heartache of the story. A first rate piece of theatre. Only one observation that being that the show lasts too long. In my opinion a cut of 10-15 mins wouldn’t harm the storyline. Many in the audience were a bit restless towards the end. Verdict? A great night out.

Hiroshi Takahashi5th August
