See it if you want a lively, seasonal, good fun performance plus Julian Clary in ever more ludicrous outfits

Don't see it if you want more serious theatre or traditional panto

Entertaining, Indulgent, Must see, Hilarious, Great writing

See it if You love a panto! The Palladium pantos are always incredibly entertaining, with a wonderful cast - the funniest show in the West End!

Don't see it if You're under 5 😂

See it if You like musicals and Panto

Don't see it if You are looking for a conventional, Family Panto

Also This is a good Panto but incorporates more musical theatre than you would normally see. It has brilliant stars and Julian Clary stands out the most by a long way. Credit to Donny Osmand, Gary Wilmot and Sophie Isaccs who all bring a fun vibe to this show. It is not the best for familys and is a little on the edgy side but overall great!

Yet for all the high-kicking (the 12 dancers of the Tiller Girls) and flame-fuelled stunts (the Australian duo Spark Fire Dance), this is a notch less bewitching than previous pantos here.

Harrison has created an extravagant alternative to pantomime. It’s entertaining, nostalgic and perhaps a little sentimental but more of a salute to variety than a true pantomime.

Nonetheless, this is Variety theatre that’s low on, er, variety. If you really are going to dispense with plot and go for all-out spectacle amid an unstoppable stream of unprintable quips about sex, you need a bit more than rings of fire and a line of dancing women with feathers on their heads.

Having said that, when the cast are as high calibre as this, the lack of a recognisable story seems a minor quibble. I gobbled it up.

The joy of pantomime can come in the mistakes, and with no room for error, Pantoland is too pristine for its own good. Even so, and to change a Donny Osmond lyric, I love theatre for a reason, let the reason be pantomime.

It’s a blast...This is panto, but nothing like we know it...This is innuendo peppered with the most fabulous variety acts with no reference whatever to a story.
