What the popular press had to say.....
ALICE JONES for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Supremely silly and loopily enjoyable...I can't remember laughing this much (or ever making quite so much noise) in a theatre." NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "The sight and sound of Eurobeat is cruel and unusual treatment, in other words torture." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "The most exuberantly enjoyable musical to have opened in the West End since Hairspray. As the sign outside the theatre promises: you'll laugh until the tears run down your legs." SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "well-honed, sharp-eyed and slickly performed...This show is entirely pointless, but its OTT energy and shameless silliness are oddly seductive. Forget high culture; this is high camp, and in its own unpretentious way it’s a winner."
