A real old fashioned song and dance number...absolutely brilliant and you come out buzzing! How the cast keep going through all of the dance numbers alone is amazing but to then belt out the tunes afterwards if just phenomenal! Cracking...you have to see it!

An amazing show. The production and set were the best I’ve seen, the part where the dancers were reflected in the mirror was so effective. The energy and talent of the cast was unbelievable, great to hear Lulu sing too. Highly recommend seeing this show....More
