Thoughtful, Colourful, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a creative staging of a young man (and family) coping with a life-changing situation.

Don't see it if you want songs to sing forever. The songs work in the context of the play but are not especially memorable Read more

Cute, Entertaining, Uplifting, Light, Sweet

See it if You like uplifting stories about overcoming adversities. Cheesy choreos. Reminded me of Dear Evan Hansen.

Don't see it if You're expecting a musical with spectacular dance numbers. You don't like teenage-focused stories.

Derivative score, Ill-paced, Inclusive, Great cast

See it if you like inspirational stories or if you like to see great young actors tell stories of people with disabilities.

Don't see it if you prefer well-paced/well-directed shows with completely original-sounding music not full of cliche story-telling.

The London Evening Standard
September 15th, 2023

"Though its raucous good humour sometimes dissolves into sentiment, it’s one of the most uplifting, heart-swelling shows I’ve seen in ages. No, I’m not crying: you’re crying."

The Guardian (UK)

"It is a lovable tearjerker... with a disarming sweetness and bearing all the signs of being an immense crowd-pleaser."

The Times (UK)

“The production deserves credit for providing disabled performers with a much-needed platform...It’s just a pity that this story doesn’t come fully alive...The title song soars; too many of the others remain earthbound.”

London Theatre
September 18th, 2023

“Moments of blame and doubt bring needed complexity to a piece that feels a few songwriting rewrites short of its full potential. But when the two male leads take to the air in defiance of a body that has been damaged, the audience’s spirits ascend on cue with them.”

The Telegraph (UK)
September 15th, 2023

"There’s plenty to admire about this show, from its inclusive spirit to its harnessing of big emotions, but it lacks detail and nuance: those crucial little things."

The Stage (UK)

“If the show doesn’t feel completely achieved, it breaks new ground and takes its audience on an exceptional journey. Perhaps, in some ways, that matters more.”

September 15th, 2023

"This triumphant new musical, based on artist Henry Fraser’s authentically inspirational memoir of the same name, is a real workout for the emotions. ... It’s universal, hopeful, involving and I really can’t wait to see it again."

The Independent (UK)
September 15th, 2023

“ ‘The Little Big Things’ approach to disability looks simplistic and a little old-fashioned – a hymn to willpower and determination with barely a discordant note.”
