Lazy, Underwhelming, Dated, Cliched, Banal

See it if You want something nostalgic.

Don't see it if You want to see quality choreography and any live singing. You are expecting good effects. It felt very cheap.

“One of the best things about The Snowman is the music, especially when there’s no speech...We had a lovely time, and it was clear that all the children around were completely in awe of what they’d witnessed, and ultimately, that’s what it’s all about.”

"A quarter of a century years on, 'The Snowman' is still one of the best shows in London to take a pre-schooler to...it has a kernel of something magical that can transport you to a childlike world of imagination and touch your heart – no matter how old you've become."
