Critic Reviews (10)

The London Evening Standard
November 19th, 2019
For a previous production

[The production] looks odd and overdone in London. Ultimately, this is a high school drama about stalkers, trolls and those who piggyback on tragedy. Which may be a tough sell for a London musical audience.

The Telegraph (UK)
November 19th, 2019
For a previous production

Directed (as on Broadway) by Michael Greif, the evening has - all the same - no weak links, casting-wise. But the show belongs to its 21-year-old star Sam Tutty, fresh out of drama school and making his West End debut.

For a previous production

For a previous production

The Guardian (UK)

For a previous production

Everything, in fact, is expertly done but, if I didn’t totally surrender to the show, it is because it lacks the courage to admit that high anxiety is not so easily cured.

Time Out London
November 19th, 2019
For a previous production

A West End newcomer, 21-year-old Sam Tutty glows with sweat and goodness, bringing integrity to a storyline that’s somewhere between ingenious and tortuous.

The Stage (UK)
November 19th, 2019
For a previous production

As shown in The Greatest Showman, Pasek and Paul have cracked the formula for four-chord pop songs; songs with a golden touch...Yes, a couple of those in second act are mawkish, but the rest are superb.
