This has been my most thrilling theatre experience , if yo u love the film , you will love this , the music , the cast , the experience . You gotta have soul after this , truly fantastic.
I had personally been involved in the original Commitments, interviewing Andrew Strong and spending a couple of hours with his Dad Rob Strong, who was also in the film. The Commitments Musical is outstanding, great cast and excellent stage set. This show is a must to go and see, so much so I am looking forward to seeing it again. Best Musical currently on in London.
I saw "The Commitments" recently and walked out in disgust. It was the most foul mouthed show I have ever seen or want to see. The cast used the "f" word every few seconds. Is that really necessary ? This is fine for equally foul mouthed slobs to see but decent, respectable folks should avoid it like the plague. Yuck. Adverts for "Barking In Essex" do at least warn us about the foul language.
I was so looking forward to seeing this musical because I absolutely loved the film and I must say I was not disappointed. From the moment it started I was hooked and usually with most other shows it takes a good 15 minutes to get into them. Extremely funny and the music was just fantastic especially Mustang Sally!! I have never seen an audience get to their feet to join in so willingly!! Welldone to everyone involved...
Brilliant, vibrant, young talented actor-musicians who make this show totally engaging from start to finish! This show puts a smile on your face, and music which develops into rich, warm soul harmonies as the band builds in confidence as it rehearses and performs. Attention to detail very impressive, just look at the set, costumes and 1980's detail. Jamie Lloyd and Roddy Doyle have produced a refreshing show which is based on their own interpretation and originality. Well done for being different, and if you are offended by a few expletives, and seek a highly intellectual deep and meaningful evenings entertainment, then you will have missed the point of this superb production. Go and see it, have a laugh, a great night out and enjoy some outstanding music. Isn't that what West End shows are all about?
After reading the reviews I was concerned that our tickets would turn out to be a waste of money. However, after seeing the show yesterday it shows that reviewers aren't always right! Brilliant energy and the lead vocalist has an incredible voice. Will definitely be going back!
We saw this show yesterday it was fantastic, the set was outstanding lots of detail. The singing amazing, the energy of the cast was amazing. It certainly made the audience get to their feet. We could have watched it again. Wishing the cast a long run.
Have seen this twice now and loved it both times. Impossible not to get up and boogie at the end and the whole show was brilliantly put together. The cast are amazing, Killian's voice is incredible, the Commitments sexy and slightly seedy, and I would definitely definitely go again - in fact already have tickets!!! Ignore the critics, they who know the price of everything and the value of nothing, and get down to the Palace Theatre NOW!!!
Bringing soul music to the working class
This is not a story through the medium of typical musical theatre but the telling of a story about a soul band.
Do not compare to the film, do not expect the songs of the film.
It is based on the book (based on, not a direct transposition of).
Fantastic energy, humour, poignant truthes and spectacular soul perfomed with energy, grit and exceptional talent.
Do you like good music? Sweet soul music? Then go and see this and you will not be disappointed.
Saw the show Saturday night very entertaining and upbeat. Don t listen to the critics a great show.
