"Overall, the Lyric Hammersmith have succeeded in renovating 'Jack and the Beanstalk' into an amusing tale, stuffed with plenty of pop-culture references that, thankfully, don't make you cringe."
"...it does everything you want a panto to do and it does it well. But it’s the air of insurrection that makes it special."
"The Lyric Hammersmith’s panto is a slick, gag-rich affair, heavy on the jolly set-pieces and pleasantly light on the political asides"
"If you’re vegan or even lactose intolerant, possibly this dairy-obsessed panto isn’t for you. If you’re not, this inspired silliness is the crème de la crème."
"By uniting the whole theatre in good cheer, this 'Jack and the Beanstalk' doesn’t just talk the talk, it walks the walk."
"I may not be moved by the Lyric Hammersmith's sparkly production, but you would be hard-pressed to find an audience cheering as loudly and enthusiastically as this one does."
