There were so many that they kind of got lost amongst one another and I barely remember them... Think: Sweets for My Sweets, Green Green Grass of Home (that scene was quite funny actually), Let's Spend the Night Together, Twist and Shout, Doo Wah Diddy Diddy, etc.

Still quite tempted to go and see this even though reviews having been amazing. Our contributor Luke went on Press night, his review is here http://www.livetheat...-empire-review/

This is touring again soon with a (partly) new cast:

And I went to the launch event for it at New Wimbledon Theatre a few weeks ago where it was hinted it will make its way into the West End around February.

Every now and again you see a jukebox musical that rises above the mediocre, this is not one of them. 1st half devoid of believable characters and any coherant thread. The 2nd half  surprised me with an unexpected twist.

You go to jukebox musicals for the music, which was played and sung well. Better than sitting in the house watching telly but overall one of the worst shows I've seen.
I can't think out of the box as I don't have a box to start with.

I saw this in Bradford and actually really enjoyed it. I only really went to see a particular cast member, as 60s shows aren't really my thing. I wasn't too keen on Dreamboats, but liked this more as the music was more to my liking - bit more rocky rather than just cheesy pop. I agree about the twist in the 2nd half, made the show much more dramatic than I expected. I think they really missed a trick though with the lead character being called Jude - I was expecting them to end the show with Hey Jude and was quite disappointed when they didn't. I assume they couldn't get the rights to the song with Let It Be being on. All in all I thought it was a fun afternoon out.
