Yes, there are moments when you want a bit more context, a sniff of story, but such worries fade away...great singing, dancing and staging unite to ensure this music speaks for itself with irresistible eloquence.

The Arts Desk
April 25th, 2019

A jazz-hot musical revue. Dancing, singing and plenty of swinging in this joyful tribute to Fats Waller...Huntley and Mabuse build in telling character moments to keep the songs compelling.

...a stylish, fast-paced evening that aims to send audiences out on a considerable high. It succeeds scintillatingly.

Time Out London
April 25th, 2019

This plot-free revue based on the songs of Fats Waller is fun but thin...As it stands, it’s a treat for Fats Waller fans, but unlikely to set the casual musical theatre goer’s world alight.

The Guardian (UK)
April 26th, 2019

A show with no driving narrative could be hard to pull off...there may not be a huge amount of depth, but the winning warmth, charm and energy of the cast proves irresistible.

London Theatre

This production... is ridiculously good fun, and is utterly transportive to the great age of jazz...Whether or not you were a Fats Waller fan when you arrived, you’re sure to be by the time you leave.

Packing thirty songs into a seamless 100 minutes, this is a feast of stomping, jiving, sexy escapism...Tyrone Huntley's directorial debut is boisterous and full of verve.
