Totally agree about the Chocolate Fctory reveal, the biggest let down of the night!

Sorry.. That was rude of me. But to be so utterly damning of it and call it a Panto? Really? And then say you prefer the staging in The Bodyguard? THAT is laughable.

This has way more ingenuity and imagination in the staging than the bodyguard.

Very mixed reviews.. The Daily mail is a shocker.. But then it probably always was going to be.
Good one in the Guardian

Well maybe people just have different opinions to you, and it’s about time you learnt to respect that?

Just because you like something doesn’t mean everyone else has to.

Frankly, reading all of this thread is almost putting me off seeing the show, because it seems as if a negative opinion about this show isn’t allowed!  I get that people can become fanatical about shows they like, but sometimes it’s taken too far…

Well Said Poster J !!

MrBarnaby you need to realise not everyone will like this, and everyone is entitled to there opinion, you can be very negative about other shows on this forum, this is a public forum where people can say what they want and that should be respected!

Considering how many negative opinions (which your entitled to) that you post, you should respect others

I was at last Wednesday's matinee

Does it have Imagination? Yes. Is it Pure? No.

Low Matinee

Here is a contribution to this spoiler thread

As a Roald Dahl fan I loved Quentin Blake's drawings in the opening film.

I too wished there was a big number when Charlie found the ticket, and the song when Grandpa Joe gets out of bed was slow. Perhaps it was taking its time as Joe finds his feet, but in the book the character literally leaps out of bed.

The waterfall is alright and there were some lighting effects to suggest flowing chocolate.

Violet's transformation was the least impressive. The mirror ball effect might as well had not been there because the reflections can barely be seen, and whilst the explosion was effective I was left mystified at what just happened. Was she floating above the audience? How did she get there in the first place? I even heard a girl asking her father what just happened.

Loved the references to the different inventions, such as the squares that look round.

I really liked the imagination room scene. It gave Charlie a reason why he deserved to win the Chocolate Factory; he had tons of imagination and he deserved the factory more than the other children, as Wonka puts it he is something from nothing

I prefer the special effects in Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang but broadly speaking the production values are amazing, and families who have not seen those musicals will get their moneys worth with this.
My reviews can also be found at "A Night at the Theatre"
