Time Out London
November 4th, 2019

This creepy musical version of the Nick Hornby classic has a sort of WTF charm to it... Basically it’s a solid production of a musical that prooooooobably should never have been written.'

London Theatre

... it feels more like a throw-everything-at-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks approach...sadly neither the book nor the songs generate enough passion or energy to make us want to care.'

A delightfully tuneful adaptation of the Broadway musical returns the unlucky-in-love record-shop owner to his London roots... The chief pleasure...lies in the music and the production.'

Music is what drives High Fidelity... The problem, though, is that while the resulting production makes constant reference to some of the best music ever created, it’s hampered by a bland pop score.'
