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!

Wonderful, my husband has been very ill and this really did cheer him, as it did me.

Absolutely fabulous show, breath-taking dance scenes, great pace. The opening just blows you away hence the audience reaction.

To the opening 42 St scene. Superb real musicians led by a fine conductor.
