Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you are a fan of any of the baking competition shows. This is fun and silly. Plot is totally predictable, but who cares.It's a good time.

Don't see it if you are looking for something serious or profound.Its a terrific show for date night or a night out with friends.The performances are great.

Fluffy, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you’re in the mood for a fun, feel-good show starring some West End favorites, including Claire Moore, John Owen-Jones and Grace Mouat.

Don't see it if you have no sense of fun.

Amusing, Indulgent, Quirky, Romantic, Entertaining

See it if You like musical theatre, and / or, are a fan of the tv show. Pleasant enough, with some top notch talent who ultimately just dont do enough

Don't see it if You’re not into musicals. Don’t think matters if you haven’t seen the tv show, as not really relevant to story. Songs/lyrics could be better

The London Evening Standard
March 9th, 2023

“The sets, like the jokes, are flat. This is low-level entertainment for the undemanding, that never rises to the level of a technical hit, let alone a showstopper.”

The Telegraph (UK)

“Rachel Kavanaugh’s slick, colourful production has such a sure sense of the show’s entertainment value and limitations that I relented, and succumbed to its good-natured zest.”

“Fans won’t be disappointed ... [but] trying to squeeze the back stories of eight contestants into a single narrative causes quite a tangle towards the end.”

“You don’t have to be a ‘Bake Off’ superfan to enjoy it, but it’ll definitely help. That way, you’ll appreciate all the detailed homages here”

“The tone might be relentlessly sweet, but it left a bitter taste in my mouth. “

The Stage (UK)

“It is ... an extraordinarily bloated show, with very little plot and about 10 songs too many... the show has a commercial veneer that is at odds with its scrappy, home-baked vibe. It is too knowing, yet at the same time too uncertain about its purpose – and ultimately, a bit too vanilla.”

All That Dazzles (UK)

“Brilliantly written and phenomenally acted, this feelgood show is the perfect recipe for a good night out...When it comes to star bakes, this show wins them all – all five of them.”

Theatre Weekly (UK)

“It’s worth noting that if you’ve never watched an episode of Bake Off, then many of the skits, in-jokes and double entendres are likely to be lost on you, but then, this big hug of a musical has clearly been written for the fans. Great British Bake Off: The Musical is a fantastic evening of escapism, much like the show it’s based on, you can get away from all the drama for a while, and just indulge in this sweet sugar rush of pure joy.”
