"I’m pretty sure this imperfect tryout will be further refined into a greater triumph...Hello Dolly: welcome back to the world of musicals."
"If you come for Parton’s songs, you will most likely enjoy this show and the live band, whose instruments include the banjo, mandolin and at one point the spoons. If only there were more music, less book."
"Spurious uplift in musicals runs all too rampant, but the sentiment here is fully earned as Scrooge learns the never-too-late value in acquiring a generosity of spirit."
"It’s a convivial show which earned a hearty ovation at the end from my crowd. It only needs a few more astringent or unpredictable moments to balance out some of the sweetness."
"When it’s the straight-talking Dolly sharing her belief in spiritual, not just material, wealth, you’re inclined to buy it. This is a Christmas Carol with a whole lotta soul."
"It'll never be a world-beating musical but it's a fun, festive time in the theatre. If you don't love Dolly, you're the problem."
"It’s all so winsome it might give you toothache, but if you like your Christmas treats sugary, it’ll slip down as easily as a cup of cocoa."
"The show will please Dolly’s fans, old and young, and it won’t offend the purists too much either...But the result is all just a little too comforting to honour its source material fully."
