Ambitious, Great music, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of the movie. Overall entertaining with great music, voices and dancing.

Don't see it if You are expecting a big spectacle. The staging and production was somewhat minimal. Would have preferred something more lavish.

Clever, Creative, Great singing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you can put the ridiculousness of the biblical story aside and enjoy the fantastic production for its excellence and originality.

Don't see it if Biblical stuff is too much of a turnoff for you.

Disappointing, Great singing, Banal

See it if you loved the film and want to hear Schwartz original songs brought to life on stage by some excellent performers- notably Christine Allado.

Don't see it if you want to see a show with an engaging story told through a lush set- this sadly makes little use of the massive space the Dominion offers.

Thought-provoking, Slow, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you’re a fan of the film. Deliver Us is well sung and staged.

Don't see it if you’re anti religious and not a fan of long shows that never seem to end.

Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Epic

See it if You want to discover the beloved classic movie being enhanced on stage with magnificent choreography, stunning visuals and stellar cast.

Don't see it if You can’t stand dance that embodies something and the story of Moses.

Overrated, Entertaining, Great singing, Disappointing, Dated

See it if You want an easy show with family friendly songs. It is quite pleasant but nothing wild or thrilling

Don't see it if You want something a bit more exciting

Time Out London
August 16th, 2021

The songs are sublime in Stephen Schwartz’s adaptation of his Biblical cartoon, but the rest is a muddle.

For a previous production

Those hoping for a revisionist spin à la Wicked take note: this is Exodus, delivered with Sunday-school seriousness, complete with re-enacted Passover.

London Theatre

For a previous production

There's plenty of deeply repetitive though undoubtedly athletic choreography from Sean Cheesman to occasionally distract the eye...but little imagination in the telling of the production from director Scott Schwartz (son of the composer).

The London Evening Standard

For a previous production

This biblical epic is an epic fail. A beefed up musical version of the indifferent 1998 DreamWorks animation about the life of Moses, it’s simultaneously pompous and simplistic.

The Guardian (UK)

For a previous production

It’s got pageantry, pyramids and dazzling dance moves, but this lavish stage adaptation drowns out the emotional drama.

For a previous production

...this is one of those big-budget musicals that is oddly lacking in interesting music...Stephen Schwartz’s musical is a frustrating experience.

The Arts Desk

For a previous production

Ultimately, however, this production is far more about the blockbuster exterior than the inner life, and, suiting the cavernous Dominion, it generally delivers on that score.

The Stage (UK)

For a previous production

But the show is too inconsistent in quality and vision to do itself justice. While it certainly fills the huge Dominion space, it does so through brute force rather than earning its grandeur.
