Exquisite, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You’re into musicals, like Dear Evan Hansen, and want to see some fantastic performances and staging. Unsure at start, but wow, brilliant

The London Evening Standard

"Though its raucous good humour sometimes dissolves into sentiment, it’s one of the most uplifting, heart-swelling shows I’ve seen in ages. No, I’m not crying: you’re crying."

London Theatre

“Moments of blame and doubt bring needed complexity to a piece that feels a few songwriting rewrites short of its full potential. But when the two male leads take to the air in defiance of a body that has been damaged, the audience’s spirits ascend on cue with them.”

“If the show doesn’t feel completely achieved, it breaks new ground and takes its audience on an exceptional journey. Perhaps, in some ways, that matters more.”

There are big things in store for this ‘little’ homegrown musical that will capture the hearts and imaginations of many. Whether The Little Big Things turns out to be the best show of 2023 remains to be seen, but this new British musical is the best thing to happen to London theatre in years

“...this uproariously crowd-pleasing musical showcases not only a burgeoning new writing talent, but also flexes the muscles of @sohoplace as a truly accessible theatre space...Vocally the show is packed with talent...’The Little Big Things’ is by no means perfect. There are missed opportunities for musical numbers”
