Really enjoyed this earlier in the week.
Tiny audience but hugely energetic cast. I loved the cartoony bits of set, the fabulous choreography and most the songs.

Agree with this thread the book is the major problem its just dosent run well.
It also needs bigger numbers to end each act, the songs just dont build and so end abruptly.

I really hate the Garrick, not been there for a good while and whilst I knew it has awful sightlines I had forgotten how much outside noise gets in and the tube rumbles,

I saw the matinee today and could echo Jaqs' comment "tiny audience but hugely energetic cast".  And yes, the tube could be heard rumbling, but everyone seemed to be having a good time and the cast still appeared to be giving their all, half-empty house or not.  I hope it picks up over Xmas and New Year, even if it is ending, as it would make a good family outing and there are good deals on offer compared to those for other, perhaps more obvious shows.

Saw the matinee yesterday - the show is now doing day seats, front row for £20.

My second visit in 2 weeks, and it was surprisingly full! Even the gallery was open.  Still love this show, might get a 3rd show in before it closes.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

To anyone still planning to see this (or revisit), the day seats sound like a good deal but the FB one is better(£15)  and has the advantage of advance booking.  And I've heard of other, even better, intermittent deals, though if the show is doing better, there may be fewer of the latter.

When I booked, it was £15 best available (and I got centre of row, near front stalls) if you quoted "FANDAY" online (as I booked) or by 'phone.  This was supposed to be valid for the rest of the run and any perf, so try it and see if the website will still accept it.

thanks but sadly that code doesn't work any longer but I will just go along on the day - not paying £45 on their website !

I'm afraid I hated this show.

So much so, I left at the interval.

No redeeming factor at all for me, sorry, just my opinion.

I'm now going into hiding.

I went last Friday and absolutely loved it! Such a shame it's now closed, it was just cheesy, feel-good theatre at its best. It wasn't trying to be anything it wasn't. I came out of the theatre smiling and humming the tunes.
