Romantic, Entertaining, Dated

See it if you love the traditional film. It’s followed quite closely.

Don't see it if you don’t enjoy slower musicals. This did feel drawn out at times.

...the stage musical is a pale imitation of the movie and about as alluring as a Christmas tree that has lost half of its needles — no matter how much tinsel you hang around it, the bare patches are hard to ignore.

breezy but bland...Seasonal entertainment is cheerful if essentially dull

Time Out London

But somehow, it feels underpowered here: the 22-strong cast isn’t numerous enough to make the dance routines feel lavish...What this plucky production does deliver is charm.

The Stage (UK)

Whatever you’ve been dreaming of, this isn’t quite it...But David Ives and Paul Blake’s adaptation, which premiered in the US in 2000, thins out the plot, weakens the characters, and removes most of the drama.

With firecracker performances and singalong sounds, this version of the Bing Crosby classic glistens with sexy razzmatazz, but tenderness lies beneath the shiny surface.
