Great story, Some good lyrics, Great music, Great singing

See it if You want to hear great melodies and voices in an interesting story. Solid staging.

Don't see it if Needs editing. The sheriff’s story is nonsensical and brings down the plot especially in the second act (which needs better pacing). Read more

Great singing, Overly long, Great music, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy shows with a great score. Cast is strong especially McQueen who stole the show for me!

Don't see it if Some pacing issues. There are several scenes that slow things down way too much (esp. in Act 2). Some edits would make this much stronger.

Fluffy, Great acting, Great singing

See it if you want to see some absolutely stand out performances from a stellar cast, brilliant harmonies and some wonderful solos too.

Don't see it if you want a gritty, hard hitting tale. This is light hearted and fluffy at times, presenting the protagonists as inherently likeable. Read more

Great acting, Slow, Great singing

See it if Watched for the songs and cast, the saving grace of this show. Fantastic score (in the first half) performed well by a talented bunch.

Don't see it if Was overly long- a lot of songs from second half are unnecessary. It’s a small theatre, yes, but staging could be better.

London Theatre
April 21st, 2022

But for most of an overlong evening, the songs merely reiterate things we already know, not so much advancing the action as restating the obvious via one too many power ballads that may come across better out of context where they don’t slow down proceedings yet further.

Despite the sheer number of songs, few propel the plot or develop the characters. All we really learn about Clyde, for example, is that he likes cars – When I Drive is fantastically performed but has absolutely no substance – and guns...Luckily for the writers, the cast couldn’t mesmerise more.

Yet both production and musical are fatally undermined by a determined refusal to reimagine a much-storied American parable. Most wanted? Alas most dull, I’m afraid.

Frank Wildhorn and Don Black’s songs are much the strongest part of this production. The "I Want" number, “The World Will Remember Me” sets the tone musically, and soon we are treated to gospel, country and big ol’ rock’n’roll, all sung beautifully by a cast full of fine singers.

It's so wonderful to see this much-loved musical have its moment after such a long wait – let's hope it continues to raise a little hell in the West End for longer than its scheduled run.

The cast could scarcely give it more gusto – Ako Mitchell also brings gravitas as the Preacher – but they are hobbled by a script that never works out what it wants to say, or why it’s saying it.
