Delightful, Masterful, Great acting, Great singing, Great staging

See it if You’re into musical theatre, or were a fan of the film. This answers the question, who’s best West End or Broadway - West End comfortably

Don't see it if You’re not looking for a musical, or for a great spectacle. This is a very high quality show.

The London Evening Standard
January 21st, 2022

Alex Timbers’ production excels when it seduces the eye, not the mind or the heart: Derek McLane’s sets and Catherine Zuber’s costumes are essays in polychromatic fabulousness.

Time Out London

...director Alex Timbers’s dementedly maximalist ‘remix’ of Baz Luhrmann’s smash 2001 film is pure sensory overload...for all its tongue-in-cheek chutzpah, when the music stops you’re not left with much.

The Telegraph (UK)

The whole experience is awash with sure-footed dance: sensuous, fleet and duly delivering those signature can-can moves in a riot of petticoat lifting and high-kicking. Yet there’s little disguising the slender narrative arc...

It’s kitsch, joyful hedonism writ large, bursting with sparklers, streamers and technicolour vitality – and powered by a cast who know only too well that you should perform every show as though it could be your last. Irresistible entertainment.

The Stage (UK)

It’s a shell of a show, all noise and no signal, instantly crumbling into its own lack of substance.

The Guardian (UK)

There is a lot to love: with a wonderfully wild energy throughout, it’s happily queerer than the film, and the well-known songs really are spectacular.
