WOW, what an amazing show, never seen anything like this production, totally worth seeing, would go again tomorrow if I could. Perfect score for me .

Cast off your concerns, bins those blues and sit back for trip back in time when shows were focused on dazzling entertainment. Coming straight at you.

There’s little doubt that Sheena Easton has retained her vocal talents honed through the tough world of pop. Whilst the lightning feet and sheer charm of Clare Halse bring Peggy Sawyer’s naive charms to life of stage.

Perhaps the biggest cheer goes out to the chorus line. As you watch with joy the spectacle, skill and talent of a young cast. It’s hard not to think about the hours of frustration, sweat and sheer stubborn tenacity it must take to get it so right. Well your efforts weren’t wasted. My thanks for a wonderful night of uplifting unadulterated song and dance.

The best show ever! I saw this yesterday, having seen it also at The Theatre Royal nearly 30 years ago. The singing is great, the dancing is fantastic, with zillions of tappers, and the sets are wonderful.

Clare Halse (Peggy Sawyer), is one heck of a tap dancer and singer, and gave a great performance.

There wasn't one weak link, and Sheena Easton belted out "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" to perfection. Although also written by Al Dubin, it hasn't featured in previous productions, and its haunting melody was very moving.

Don't blink during "We're in the Money", or the finale of "42nd Street", cos you won't to miss a nanosecond! This is a feel good, and then feel even better sort of show. My mouth was aching with smiling! Brilliant.

Absolutely breathtaking ! The cast, costumes, production are all fantastic. A thoroughly enjoyable evening out. Would recommend anyone who loves musical theatre to go and see this spectacle of a show.

Forget your troubles...go see 42nd Street it's just the best thing in town at the moment. Great cast, numerous excellent sets and that magical sound of a whole lot of feet, in perfect sybchronisation, tap-dancing.

My husband treated me to see the matinee performance today and it was great. Such a talented cast, and wonderful numbers. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

Take absolutely no notice of The Guardian's mealy-mouthed nit picking review. It's theatre!! It doesn't have to be politically correct. It's fun!

Everybody else seems to like it - and so will you.

Go see it....

Totally fabulous!
