We saw the final show of 42nd street and it was spectacular, the audience was full of people who must have seen it before and they cheered the whole show. Very fun indeed!

Great feel good show, a bit old school. Fab dancing and singing. Good old fashioned musical. Great performances by all. Packed theatre (we managed to get reduced price tickets) making for a great atmosphere.

Loved this show. Old school at it's best. Very different to the shoes I usually go to but I thought it was fabulous. Nice that Bonnie Langford was also appearing. There were lots of spare seats which was a real shame as it was a...More

Really enjoyed this show with plenty of pizazz and sparkle. Came out feeling really upbeat and would definitely recommend as a feel good dancing show. Not a lot of leg room but this is often the case with the older theatres. Give it a go!...More

Travelled to London from Bristol to see this show as a Christmas gift. I didn’t know anything about the show beforehand aside from it being a broadway show. I bought bargain seats on lastminute.com - £45 for front row stall seats. From beginning to end,...More

Coming from South Africa I somehow expect more from the West End. Good choreography, costumes and lighting, and loads of tap dancing if you are a fan, but otherwise unmemorable with a stupid plot, canned acting & frankly largely boring.

The reviews on TripAdvisor are accurate - this is a spectacular show and worthy of all the accolades heaped upon it. I took my seven year old daughter and she sat enthralled. It was the perfect show for her - minimal dialogue, very few scary...More

No, not much dialogue at all. Also many of the songs are quite old well known songs. The dancing is the best I’ve ever seen! Enjoy the show.
