Excruciating, Dated, Banal

See it if you have an unflinching nostalgia for the show and want to hear the same catchphrases and gags over and over again.

Don't see it if you want a show that has any regard for narrative, or one that is funny. The songs, story and jokes were all forgettable and cringy at best. Read more

Heartwarming, Audience pleaser!, Fun, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you want a theatre show hug - A jewel in JoanMavisTrotter's crown Delboy owns the stage & leads a wonderful cast! Nostalgia at it’s finest!

Don't see it if you don’t like OFAH tv programme - the best scenes are amalgamated into a ‘cushty’ reimagined comedy.

Excruciating, Banal

See it if You like to keep brilliant actors in work despite the quality of the material

Don't see it if You have anything else to do. Ironing, staring into middle distance, taking the dog for a walk.

Well made, Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Underrated

See it if You liked the TV one. Can recommend when you need cheer ups.

Don't see it if Not 'don't see' but if you don't know the original programme you may be confused why other people are laughing.

Time Out London
October 1st, 2021

It’s affectionate fun. There are some good gags – including an early tease of Del’s bar fall – and the sitcom's iconic theme tune works well as a refrain (sung by the cast) for the twinkly cheekiness of this show’s tone.

“There’s little point in describing individual performances, since all are serviceable broad-brush impersonations of the screen characters...Applause came for characters, not performers...As for the songs, they’re an odd mix...The prevailing emotional register is a kind of lukewarm sentimentality...The evening is basically a polite nostalgia-fest: certainly not for the era, and perhaps not even for the series itself so much as the feelings it engendered.”

It’s not half as entertaining as the original pratfall. But if you ever wanted to see it in the flesh, here’s your chance. Nuff said.

Just how much you warm to it will largely depend on your wish to revisit a beloved TV series in this new but hardly revelatory format.

What are the rules here? It’s a well-meaning evening but it needs a generous audience.

For a previous production

Despite its flaws, it's refreshing to see a new musical that, probably for the first time since Our House, revels in its London setting and unapologetic Britishness. Plus it's often laugh-out-loud funny.

For a previous production

The result is a show that shouldn’t work and often doesn’t, but is enjoyable all the same.

The Independent (UK)

For a previous production

The crucial thing missing from this funny musical is any truly compelling reason why Del Boy and Rodney have to burst into song.
