See it if you enjoy classic musicals. The sets and the costumes were amazing, and brilliant performances

Don't see it if you want more fast-paced musicals. It can be slow at times and there aren't many big musical numbers

See it if you like the film. The plot is the same, you'll see your favourite moments on stage, with some high-energy numbers and catchy tunes

Don't see it if you don't like pink, there's pink everywhere. Also, as an open air theatre don't expect perfect sound or lighting, it has limitations

See it if you like the movie. Some of this songs are classics and the group numbers have some great dancing

Don't see it if you don’t like a cheesy high school romance story. It’s a bit cliched now, but this musical has been around for a while.

See it if you like the style of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons and want to know more about their story.

Don't see it if you don't like jukebox musicals or want a more exhilarating experience. Being a biographical show it can get boring at times.

See it if you liked the plot of the movie but are not a hardcore fan. Keeps the spirit of the film but expect changes. Amazing costumes and sets.

Don't see it if you're a hardcore fan of the film. Some songs have changed for the worst, most notably the Elephant Medley, and it can be disappointing.

See it if you want slapstick and absurd comedy at its best. If you liked "The Goes Wrong Show" on TV you'll definitely enjoy this one.Cleverly written

Don't see it if this is not your type of humour. Expect slapstick, physical comedy and absurd situations.

March 23rd, 2022

See it if you're a fan of the Sherman Brothers songs and the basic plot of the film it's based on. Great sets and amazing choreographies.

Don't see it if you expect an accurate adaptation of the film. The musical is supposed to be closer to the books, although it uses the Disney songs

See it if you want to see an original take on the classic story of Romeo and Juliet presented in a clever way

Don't see it if you don't like jukebox musicals, especially if you don't like modern pop songs (Britney, Katy Perry,...)

See it if you're a fan of the franchise. It's almost a carbon copy of the first film, including the iconic songs.

Don't see it if the movie wasn't your cup of tea or if you expect to leave humming the new songs, not super catchy

See it if you like rocking out and seeing wonderfully talented kids on stage. Same plot as the film but with many new original songs.

Don't see it if you don't like the comedy style of Jack Black, the lead role has been kept very similar and may be unnerving for some.

See it if you like high school dramas and catchy songs. Brilliant musical numbers and funny moments.

Don't see it if suicide, abuse and bullying topics are not for you. It can get too intense at times.

See it if you liked the movie. Same great songs plus a few additional ones. Great costumes and puppetry.

Don't see it if the film was not your thing. Or visible puppeteers distract you from the show.

March 21st, 2022

See it if you like thrilling and intense stories, many characters, big drama and a still a must see in the West End after so many years.

Don't see it if you don't like drama. It's an intense one, not one if you're looking for an uplifting escape to theatre.

See it if you like horror movies. A great thriller that achieves so much with so little. With just two actors it keeps you on edge all the time.

Don't see it if you don't like scary plays. It's more psychological most of the time but expect to jump on your seat a couple of times at least.

See it if you like the Disney movie. It's exactly like that with a few additional songs. Great to see the characters live on stage. Amazing sets.

Don't see it if you think you've heard "Let it go" enough times for a lifetime. Although you should still see this one.

See it if you like Roald Dahl's book. It's closer to the book than the movie. Very cleverly written lyrics too, expected from Tim Minchin.

Don't see it if you don't like kids. Or Tim Minchin. Also, it may get a bit too dark for kids during a couple of scenes.

See it if you want to see some of the best sets and costumes in the West End. A classic that still amazes me after so many years.

Don't see it if ... can't think of anything, it's one of my favourites.

See it if you like ABBA. Great musical numbers with their songs and the lyrics fit well to tell the story.

Don't see it if you don't like ABBA songs, obviously. The story is not amazing, but it's entertaining.

See it if you like amazing puppetry and great staging. I'd recommend to see this one from the circles.

Don't see it if you don't like puppeteers visible on stage.

See it if you want one of the best plays in the West End. Amazing illusions, great sets and a thrilling story for Harry Potter fans

Don't see it if you don't like Harry Potter. You'll get more invested in the story if you're a fan of the books. Also, it's loooong

Insipid, Great acting
March 18th, 2022

See it if you like to know more about the history of NYC roads. It's a bland topic but I found it surprisingly interesting most of the show.

Don't see it if a thrilling story. The acting was amazing and makes you care about what's happening, but it's not that exciting.

Must see, Hilarious, Surprising
March 18th, 2022

See it if you like to be surprised. The only certain thing is you'll see a comedy musical, but each show is different, you never know what you'll see

Don't see it if you want well-written theatre. This is improvised so the plot may not make sense at all and it may have holes.

See it if you like catchy songs, irreverent humour and absurd situations. Coming from the creators of South Park, so expect something similar.

Don't see it if you're a mormon, I guess. It can offend a lot of people easily, you have to like this kind of humour. Again, use South Park as a reference

See it if you're want great songs and a thought-provoking story. Makes you reflect about mental health and how we tend to hide those issues.

Don't see it if the topic of mental health and suicide is tough for you.

See it if you like catchy pop songs. I guarantee you'll leave the theatre singing at least one of them.

Don't see it if you want a full-length show. The only negative about "Six" is that it's too short.

See it if you want to see a top-notch show. Great songs, beautiful sets and costumes and insanely talented performers. Best "end-of-act-1" number ever

Don't see it if you want something smaller more intimate. To be fair, I just said that to write something here. Just go and see it.

Great singing, Disappointing
March 18th, 2022

See it if you like Gloria Estefan / Miami Sound Machine music. You'll get a lot of it, all the classics.

Don't see it if you expect a fast-paced high-energy show. It tells the story of the Estefans through music, so some slower moments are expected.

See it if you like absurd farcical comedy. Funny word plays and incredible stunts rarely seen live on stage.

Don't see it if you don't like Monty Python humour. This is relatively similar, with absurd situations and ridiculous dialogs at times (funny if like it)

Also Not as good as other Mischief Theatre productions, but one to see if y... Read more Read less

See it if you liked the movie. It's a quite accurate adaptation, with all your favourite moments from the film: watermelons, lifts and a hula dance

Don't see it if you didn't like the movie. If you thought the 80s film was cheesy don't see this.

See it if you want to hear a heartwarming story with an amazing soundtrack. Great stories from real-life characters.

Don't see it if the underlying story of 9/11 affects you. It's not directly mentioned too much, but it's obviously part of the plot.

Also An uplifting and heartfelt masterpiece of storytelling and a much need... Read more Read less
