We are both Kinks fans in our 60s/70s and expected to enjoy it. But, like a previous review we had to leave during the interval. We were in the Royal circle - we couldn't move - no leg room, we couldn't see the front of the stage, and we couldn't hear what was being said. What we could hear was the noise which almost burst our eardrums. We could barely distinguish the songs. And we were suffering from vertigo looking down on the stage from such a height. Not the sort of review I have made before - and not one I would hope to have to make again. The saving grace was a lovely stroll round London after the first half.

Absolutely blew me away, wonderful show, well performed, nostalgic, especially Waterloo Sunset and Lola, matinee performance so nice lunch walk to theatre then meal, excellent entertainment and an excellent day in London.

Went to see this show last Friday with two teenage boys who did not know much of the music, but I knew they would love it and they did! Clapped along and laughed at the jokes and had a brilliant first West End show in London! Great show full of energy and so professional. We loved every minute and the time flew!

Took my partner and friends to watch this show Apr 2015. He has been a kinks fan since the beginning and was blown away by the performance. Would recommend and would definately go and see it again.

I attended the matinee performance 20 th Feb as a birthday treat.It was wonderful! the cast were so talented and it left me feeling uplifted,energised and wanting to book tickets again.

The FOH/Ushers were also great-I ordered drinks for the interval and told the barman I was there to celebrate my birthday so he'd left me a bag of chocs with my drinks-how lovely was that?!

I work as an usher/FOH at Chichester Festiavl Theatre so appreciate positive feedback from customers.

Thanks again

If I could give this 6 stars I would!!

We have watched the show today (6th Feb 2016) and all of us were simply blown away. Fantastic singing and acting by all and we didn't want the show to end. The standing ovation was very much deserved. The actors gave everything and that was clear for all to see. Yes it's quite loud at the beginning, but not for long and we were right at the front. The whole theatre was up and dancing at the end. Brilliant brilliant brilliant! Up there with the best I've seen. Would definitely recommend going to see this show, it's worth every penny. I want to go AGAIN!!! Well done guys.

We are sure the complete show was good but after the first half the three of us had to leave the theatre because of how loud the music was. We are sure that the audience and the actors will suffer with tinitus or some such other ear problems with the loudness of the music. The three of us felt that because it was loud it took away the enjoyment that we were expecting of the show. the story was good and acting/singing excellent. We would very much have liked to have seen the whole show, but wth one of us with ear plugs in and the other two with fingers in ears it spoilt it for us. Also, we have been to many musicals/shows in London and other cities and this is the first time that we left at the interval because of the noise level.
