We are surprised at the positive reviews for this show.  As far as were were concerned it was a dismal load of rubbish.  Billed as being filled with stirring songs and tunes, we can only ask where people are coming from.  The diction was terrible and the acting was appalling.  The only good thing about it was the puppetry, and this was truly amazing.  We can only advise going to see the film instead. We feel well and truly cheated put of our money, having seen MANY truly wonderful West End shows in the past, this was a huge disappointment.

We have enjoyed every West End show over the years before this on except Chess, and we have seen a good many.

We go to London a few times a year and always take in a show or two,must say I think the majority are worth the money.

Last time I was in London was in the sixties. Hated the place !!
Never seen a 'show' anywhere ! can't see the attraction, and could never justify the expenditure !

Each to his/her own of course, but we have spent many really happy hours at shows, and have seen some wonderful entertainment. Including Les Mis twice, Phantom, Sound of music, Me and my girl, My fair lady, Miss Saigon, Blood brothers, Cats, Josephs Technicolor coat, Jesus Christ super star, and possibly others which don't come immediately to mind.

I ain't bovvered really.  Money is for spending on what gives us satisfaction and happiness, we can't take it with us.  I am nearly eighty now, and 'Er Indoors is nearly seventy nine, what is the point in hanging on and denying ourselves pleasure, while we can take advantage of what we have?  This is why we have so many short breaks these days.

Quite right andsome you spend your money on whatever suits you, I couldn't agree more.
My wife is profoundly deaf and so the entire concept of a live 'show' is not what she would consider enjoyment, it would be more like torture for her.
Over the years we have lost the habit of going out anywhere except for shopping trips and holidays, we find it easier on our nerves this way.
