“Seats were small; music was loud.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We were looking forward to seeing one of England's most famous plays, but were actually disappointed. The seats were cramped, and I actually walked out with a headache!

“Neither here or there...”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Honestly I had high hopes that this was going to be a great musical however I left feeling disappointed... There was no real highlight during the performance that I thought wow! So if you're in London and can't get tickets to Book of Mormons or you managed to get a really great deal for this show, then check this out.

“Way better than I expected it to be”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I forgot the story had kids and was darn surprised seeing how adorable and talented they all were. Greatly built stage design and props. The way they 'use' the theatre and props were to me, better than Lion King's and Wicked's methods. I thought I was too old for this show and I was so wrong. The story was nice and complex, and some musical acts had genius choreography. I got average-priced tickets with great seats a DAY before the show so it's never too late to go watch.
