Critic reviews

An uneven attempt to bring the big top back in time


Verdict A thoroughly attractive and agreeably old-fashioned combination of circus and theatre

· The Stage

This is an excellent show for the whole family, with a heart-warming and traditional feeling that is often a rarity in modern theatre

· Broadway World

Old-fashioned big-top fun without a whip or prod in sight

· The Telegraph

A highly entertaining finale to theatre in 2018

· Evening Standard
