Critic reviews

All Pumpkin, No Balls

Londonist

If you loathe the tinsel and detest turkey, this one’s for you

West End Wilma

Exuberant and funny musical based on the Cinderella fairy tale. Excellent performances by a talented cast, catchy songs and lively dance numbers

Everything Theatre

A well-meaning play brimming with hopeful kindness and soundtracked by infectious music. It makes for a fun evening

The Upcoming

There’s almost certainly a moral to the story, but it’s probably not worth spending too long looking for it, instead enjoy the fabulous score and fantastic cast in this joyous musical, that has acceptance at its heart

Theatre Weekly

A talented company in an entertaining piece

Musical Theatre Review

I would challenge anyone to remain unmoved by Robbie’s heartfelt torch song They Don’t Make Glass Slippers which shines a well-deserved spotlight on his talent as a singer and the writing skills of the composers

London Box Office

Sardonic, funny, entertaining, and even moving at times

Broadway World

It's certainly one heck of a party down Old Compton Street

WhatsOnStage

Broad comic performances

London Theatre

Uninspired revival of Stiles and Drewe's problematic musical fairytale

The Stage

Even without looking too hard for a moral it's plain to see that Will Keith's production is bags of fun, with an incredibly talented cast
