BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "A visit to the Piccadilly will bring you terrific music, great fun, one or two excellent dance numbers..." LISA MARTLAND for THE STAGE says, "Consistently nice and even joyful but rarely does one get the gut feeling that something exciting is taking place."
