Great dancing, Cruel, Great writing, Great singing

See it if You would like a quality show. Music, singing, dancing, book, staging ....all are at high standard.

Don't see it if I wouldn't recommend this to children. Act1 is good but act2 is scary and cruel from onset to near the end. Some kids left crying.

" 'Hex' is an enjoyable family show, but is frustratingly bogged down by certain elements to be a real success."

"Overall, though individual segments are presented with flair, it feels like 'Hex' is being made up as it goes along."

"A fabulous musical ... just a shame about the music. But there is so much originality, quirkiness and creative magic here that it puts us under its spell."

"It's that humanity the show needs. It's full of effects and enchantment, but it is only when Bert and Rose are kept firmly in view that it truly finds the extra level it seeks."

"This was an evening full of breathtaking effects...it was as opulent as a jewel-box. Never mind that the gem that it held wasn’t quite as beguiling."

Time Out London

"This is an elaborate gingerbread castle of a show that's built on candyfloss-light foundations: lovely to look at, undeniably impressive, but doomed to collapse under the weight of its own overweening ambition."

The Telegraph (UK)

"It's often glorious, even if it reminds us perhaps once too many times that its better to be yourself rather than a hero or a villain in a fairy tale."

"We’re so uninvested in their happy-ever-afters that none of it matters, and we’re left marvelling at the show for all the wrong reasons. So much effort and energy. So little point."
