I'm so glad that Sophie got to take over as full time Dorothy, I wanted her to win Over The Rainbow & when I saw the show I was lucky enough to have her playing Dorothy.

I liked the show a lot more than I expected to, I only went because my mum wanted to go & so we got the 25 'not suitable for children' seats in the stalls & had a great time. I was very impressed by the other cast members, especially Marianne Benedict & Paul Keating.

I'm not sure it's one I could keep going back to see again & again, but I'll probably make another trip if a closing date is given, just to see it once more.

Saw it last night. He was dreadful, the show was dreadful and the stalls were about a third full at best.

Oh you mean people's comments on a website.

Well I guess you should now include mine and in future refer to the reviews as being mixed.
