Jennifer Gow2nd May

It was an excellent show, just what I expected, even after hearing some not so good reviews.

Laura Saunsbury2nd May

The orchestra was impressive but I found the show disappointing compared to how I remembered it. it was rather slow and seemed very repetitive. After about 15 minutes my teenage daughter and i were both bored.

Lynne Cable2nd May

Fantastic show. Amazing music, effects and cast.

Teresa Walton1st May

Orchestra - brilliant. Staging, with all the films going on in the background, a bit overwhelming and not as good as some shows we've seen, hence the four star rating. Slightly disappointed overall.

John Newsome30th April

The show was brilliant the live music excellent and for me and my kids it was a walk down memory lane -


What an amazing show although very different to what I usually see.My friends & I enjoyed it very much especially the incredible orchestra which played non stop throughout.

Debbie Castell29th April

We absolutely loved the show. Music was brilliant. The actors were amazing! The dancers were great and we had really good seats in the front row of the Circle. Jeff Wayne on stage conducting the orchestra was fantastic too! Shame it finishes tomorrow but if it ever makes a comeback, definitely one to go & see!

Ian Digby28th April

Despite the high profile names in the cast, none were particularly strong. Staging also disappointing.

Jayne Blutstein28th April

Too long ,the second half being better ,The music was excellent but some of th scenes went on and on monotonously !too many bodies repeating the same rolling actions and too much up and down of poor old Liam a one of experience!! Won't be forgotten certainly

Christine Hales27th April

Visually stunning show and worth the visit.

oudkerk pool marco27th April

Disappointing show Too loud Not entertaining

Jeanette Pulley27th April

The show itself was great. I'm very unimpressed and frankly feel ripped off that London Theatre Direct sold me tickets with a supposed face value of £69 for the 'sale' price of £25. When I collected the tickets from the box office the actual face value was £20. Buyer beware!
