Great band, Entertaining, Great writing, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You’re into seeing a new musical to these shores, based on a classic novel. Very faithful too, so if not familiar read a synopsis

Don't see it if You’re not into musical theatre, otherwise catch it whilst you can.

Cheap looking stage design, Strange production, Big orchestra, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you want to listen to an great score, performbed by an amazing cast supported by a n orchestra of 18 musicians.

Don't see it if you expect a pompous stage design like in Vienna. Read more

Ambitious, Great staging, Enjoyable, Uneven, Entertaining

See it if you’re interested to see what they did with this. It needs work and a larger stage, but I was impressed with what they were able to do here.

Don't see it if you need it to be at a higher level. It has the makings of something even better that just isn’t fully realized yet, but still a fun watch.

Dated, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy seeing old fashion musicals similiar to Phantom. The music is fantastic and the orchestration is first rate.

Don't see it if you're expecting epic level production like Phantom. The theatre is small and not capable of grand production this show should be.

Over-the-top, but fun

See it if You like lush, melodic scores. It’s beautifully sung with a large orchestra.

Don't see it if You would be turned off by somewhat cheesy production values.

Atmospheric, Clever set changes, Entertaining, Interesting, Good voices

See it if You are a fan of the classic movie and want to see the musical version

Don't see it if You are looking for a big budget musical with extravagant sets and costumes. This production does an amazing job with limited space. Read more

Don't see it if You like am-dram style sets

BroadwayWorld
September 19th, 2023

“Plenty of delightfully sinister elements suddenly tip into melodrama and the excellence of the score is never matched by the direction...This ’Rebecca’ is traditional in every way, but it’s most certainly not a classic...It’s a shame that so much has been lost in translation.”

The Guardian (UK)
September 18th, 2023

“Under the direction of Alejandro Bonatto, the performances are polished...The first half takes us through the story briskly, the central romance too quickly handled and functional to the plot. But intrigue sets in after that and the twist is delivered well.”

Theatre Weekly (UK)
September 18th, 2023

“This English language debut of Rebecca is an admirably ambitious production that needs a bigger space to really ignite the story’s passion. The cast are truly wonderful, but it feels like they’re being held back by the production’s inability to live up to the scale it’s trying to achieve.”

“Ultimately, not every story lends itself to the musical treatment, and with its low level menace and murky remembrances and recriminations, ‘Rebecca’ might work better as a modern opera...As a tuner stuffed with big belting numbers, it’s too sincere to be high camp and too schlocky to take seriously. This show has a passionate worldwide fan base which will probably grow even further here, but once was more than enough for me.”

All That Dazzles (UK)

“While this show admittedly has several incredible elements going for it, most notably its rousing score, sadly this production has far too many issues that contravene its strengths. As I left the theatre, I considered whether this show had more positive or negative attributes going for it and regrettably came to the conclusion there is more of the latter.”

"It’s a production that monumentally fails to do justice to its source material."

The Telegraph (UK)

"While this show moves at a pleasing lick, it neither fully honours du Maurier’s original nor finds a convincing theatrical language of its own."

"This show is a pleasant enough event, but not a show that we think anyone will be lauding as a life changing theatrical phenomenon. A fine night out if not taken too seriously."
