Great singing, Great staging, Funny
April 28th, 2022

See it if Funny, clever and has a feel good factor. Entertaining with great vocals from a great cast.

Don't see it if If you don’t like jukebox musicals or are not open minded- contains LGBT+ and feminist themes.

See it if One of the best shows I’ve seen in a while- deeply touching and cleverly done. Manages to be sensitive to the subject, yet funny.

Don't see it if The subject matter (9/11) may upset you.

See it if What’s not to love- brilliant show, staging is great, songs are catchy.

Don't see it if If you’re not into contemporary musicals- the rapping may be hard to follow for some.

See it if It’s funny, cast are fantastic considering the source material.

Don't see it if Tries to say a lot, but not much to say. With the exception of Michael in the bathroom, the score is forgettable.

See it if Lovely, interesting staging choices. Like the instrumentalist/actor aspect of it. Really nice adaptation.

Don't see it if You’re a fan of the original staging, if infidelity or dissolution of marriage is upsetting to you.

See it if Great score, great vocals, mindlessly entertaining as it doesn’t take anything too seriously- watch if you like dark humour.

Don't see it if If you’re a die hard fan of the movie. Also it’s a bit shallow in dealing with topics like suicide and bullying and you know, murder.

Great acting, Great singing, Absorbing
April 28th, 2022

See it if Cast are amazing. I was tired just watching the actress play Tina- she was phenomenal.

Don't see it if Can be quite intense- don’t see if depictions of domestic violence triggers you.

Great acting, Great singing, Funny
April 28th, 2022

See it if You like comedy and take everything with a grain of salt.

Don't see it if It has its problematic elements even to the most open minded viewer- so don’t see if you’re easily offended.

Disappointing, Great singing
April 28th, 2022

See it if Staging was interesting, songs performed beautifully, highlights were those from the movie though.

Don't see it if Additional songs added not much to the show. Choreography was overly athletic for starved slaves. The changed ending was also frustrating.

See it if All star cast- every member of the 5-strong adult cast are sensational. Music is amazing too!

Don't see it if Not a fan of Motown/Jukebox musicals.

Refreshing, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever, Absorbing
April 28th, 2022

See it if Fantastic reimagining of the show- staging unique, performances nuanced. This removed problematic elements from original which is great.

Don't see it if Quite topical- not a kid friendly musical or one for those who aren’t open minded.

Great singing, Confusing, Dated
April 28th, 2022

See it if Actors did well with what they had- great singing, and staging is nice.

Don't see it if You’re a fan of the original- doesn’t translate the best on stage. Songs are forgettable unfortunately. It just doesn’t work.

Fluffy, Entertaining, Funny
April 28th, 2022

See it if Donna steals the show- worth watching for her solo alone. Staging is clever and fun- and it’s ABBA, what more to say?!

Don't see it if Maybe it’s who I saw, but some characters were miscast- varying arrays of vocal ability which detracted from what was an entertaining show.

See it if If you’re an ALW fan go for it. Really talented cast- they save the show.

Don't see it if Songs were largely forgettable, bar a few. But nothing revolutionary here- just another Cinderella retelling.

Great staging, Entertaining, Delightful
April 28th, 2022

See it if A rare screen to stage adaptation that works! Gorgeous set, talented cast- a real fun night out.

Don't see it if If you’re not a fan of jukebox musicals- but I suspect there are some songs here that can convert jukebox opposers.

Great acting, Slow, Great singing
April 28th, 2022

See it if Watched for the songs and cast, the saving grace of this show. Fantastic score (in the first half) performed well by a talented bunch.

Don't see it if Was overly long- a lot of songs from second half are unnecessary. It’s a small theatre, yes, but staging could be better.

See it if You’re open to a more modern interpretation, and creative staging. It’s quite immersive.

Don't see it if If you’re a die hard fan of Joel’s Emcee, give this a miss- he’s somewhere between him and the raunchiness of Cummings.
