“Michelle Visage has joined the cast of this feel-good contemporary musical about the 16-year-old gay school outcast and would-be drag queen. This gloriously ebullient evening may be very much in fairy tale mode, but it boasts sharp songs, sharp social comment and even sharper performances. There is grit beneath the sequins and the frocks, and a critique of society’s unwillingness to embrace difference lurking behind the wit. It’s a show with as much appeal to teenagers as to their parents, and I can’t think of a West End show which delivers the same level of full-throttle, look-no-hands joy.”
