Review this show


The Hoover family has more than a few troubles, but young Olive has her heart set on winning the Little Miss Sunshine beauty contest. When an invitation to compete comes out of the blue, the Hoovers must pile into their rickety, yellow VW camper van. Can it survive the 800-mile trip from New Mexico to California – and more importantly, can they? This inventive and uplifting musical celebrates the quirks of every family, the potholes in every road, and the power of overcoming our differences.

Critic reviews

Get on board for a feelgood road trip

· Evening Standard

Like the film original, the stage musical is something of an oddity

· Musical Theatre Review

Certainly not a perfect production, but one that will get you laughing. Little Miss Sunshine is a welcome evening of entertainment

· Londonist

A funny but underpowered musical take on the offbeat indie movie

· Time Out

A joyously resourceful production by Arcola artistic director Mehmet Ergen

· London Theatre

Middling musical adaptation of the cult film by James Lapine and William Finn that pales in comparison to the original

· The Stage

The younger cast are delightfully cheeky

· Broadway World

A faulty yet nostalgia-laden vehicle, pushed along through sheer determination by a stoic group trying its best

· WhatsOnStage

This lively musical take on the 2006 film satirising child beauty pageants is likable but lacks bite

· The Guardian

Mehmet Ergen’s production is the best it can get with the source material, being perfectly engaging and providing many with plenty of laughter and earworm
