See it if You want to have a fun night out and see a musical that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Don't see it if You’re ‘anti-woke’.

See it if You like it when directors shake up a production so that you can see the material through a fresh pair of eyes.

Don't see it if You don’t like gun shots or being plunged into darkness (more than once!)

April 6th, 2022

See it if you're looking for light-hearted entertainment. But don't rush to see it, has disappointing tropes and the music + plot are not that great.

Don't see it if you're expecting to see an exciting new take on Cinderella. Unfortunately, it does not deliver.

April 6th, 2022

See it if you like the music and energy of the Spice Girls and other Brit Pop princesses. It's a short and fun show, not to be taken too seriously.

Don't see it if You're looking for a traditional plot and dramatic story arc. It's more like a concert.

See it if you enjoy Tina Turner's music obviously! It's a dark show and deals with the many tragedies in Tina's life but has a triumphant finale.

Don't see it if TW: deals with themes of domestic abuse/violence

See it if young audiences are likely to enjoy this as their introduction to musicals. It's a fun show with a lot of heart and memorable songs.

Don't see it if probably wouldn't recommend for audiences outside the kids/young teens age bracket.

See it if The cast delivered engaging performances but I can't quite understand the hype around this play. Enjoyed 'Appropriate' much more.

Don't see it if US race discussions make you uncomfortable? But it's not that heavy.

See it if you enjoy horror plays - it's very spooky! I'd say I found this much more frightening than the film adaptation.

Don't see it if you are easily scared.

See it if you enjoy the silly humour from the creators of South Park and Avenue Q. It's a dark comedy with a lot of heart surprisingly.

Don't see it if non-politically correct jokes make you uncomfortable.

See it if you enjoy dramatic musicals. The Andrew Lloyd Webber score is a classic and the costumes, choreography and staging are 'iconic'.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy long musicals.

See it if it's one of the longest West End shows for a reason! Great singing and acting and moving story.

Don't see it if You struggle to sit through long musicals that are mostly sung through.

See it if the hype is real! This show is powerful and absorbing.

Don't see it if You struggle with understanding quickly spoken/sung lyrics. May be helpful to listen to some of the songs in advance to get a feel for it.

See it if you enjoy performances from a talented West End cast. Music is from the same composers as the Greatest Showman, but this is darker tonally.

Don't see it if TW: includes themes such as mental health struggles and suicide.

See it if you enjoy dark musical theatre comedies with a fun pop score. Has kept many moments and lines from the 80s film.

Don't see it if The demographic for this show is probably teen/young adult. So if you fall outside of that bracket, approach with caution.

See it if You’d like to experience one of the best productions in the West End right now. The set design, visuals and puppetry are extraordinary!

Don't see it if You weren’t a fan of the book, although it focuses more on the second half of the book rather than the first.

See it if You enjoyed the 80s film and would like to see very impressive set design features on the West End.

Don't see it if You weren’t a fan of the 80s film it’s based on as it follows the plot fairly closely and goes for the same jokes.

See it if You’re looking for a fun night out and enjoy the music of Swedish pop songwriter Max Martin e.g Hit Me Baby One More Time, Stronger, Roar

Don't see it if You’re not a fan of jukebox musicals. The plot for this is fairly all over the place.
