Christopher Wheeldon’s superb show is a riot of colour and movement, with irresistible dance routines and a wealth of Gershwin classics... theatrical gold. - The Guardian
IT’S A SPECIAL SHOW - TRULY IT IS. You almost feel you couldn’t ask for anything more but this Gershwin musical also has that indefinable something called grace and a joie de vivre that lifts it, and us, all night long. - The Times

Good for the most part by Naadim
The presentation of the storyline at the beginning (first 10 minutes), and the abrupt ending, were unfortunate features of an otherwise very successful show.
Excellent feel good show

Didn't realize there would be so much dancing and so many scene changes.
Feel Good Factor. by Margaret
Lively, colourful show, good singing, great dancing. Wonderful leading cast, altogether a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thank you for a lovely afternoon out from the miserable weather outside.
s'wonderful by Barbara
Excellent show, the story line itself is quite thin but apart from that, 10/10 for everything.
Thoroughly enjoyable! by Noelene

Great show! by Mary
Clear view of whole stage with easy access. Very slick professional presentation with wonderful dancers. Liked the humour too.
A must see! by Patricia
Second time I go to see this show and I have enjoyed even more than the first time. I was a little disappointed because I expected to see Robbie Fairchild again in the leading role but Ashley Day is absolutely brilliant in his performance. The show is funny, colorful, very well produced and directed, with a lot of glorious Gershwin songs played by a live orchestra and the actors / singers / dancers, all of them wonderful. Highly recommended! A must see!

An ok show by Linda
Not our type of thing. We thought it would have more oomph. Not enough magic.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - A MUST SEE by Patricia
Great musical with great performances and a big orchestra playing live. If you love Gershwin and the movie with Gene Kelly you are going to love this! A little different twists in the plot and more songs and dances than in the movie. Everything beautifully done. It is a jewell and the only thing I can say is: GO AND ENJOY EVERY SECOND!
Tremendous show - Gerswin is unequaled - the dancing - the combination of classical dance and jazz-dance was spectacuar. Good singing too.
This has the Wow factor!! by Jil
It was an excellent production, the cast sung and danced really well and seemed to be enjoying themselves too. The movement of the scenery was at times a bit confusing but overall showed the background to the action on stage.
