Tap Dogs 'has a winning format'
According to Gerald Dowler of the Financial Times, the production has achieved huge success over the last 15 years.
This, he said, is partly because it contains a winning formula, which includes quick lighting and staging, as well as slick production values.
"If you are into 80 minutes of testosterone-driven, industrial tap, this is the show for you," Mr Dowler commented.
However, he warned that people with tickets for the front three rows may need to wear their complementary plastic ponchos, as sweat is likely to "flow freely" from the stage.
This comes after Tap Dogs star Adam Garcia hailed Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire as two of the main influences on his tap dancing.
Speaking to BBC News, he described them as heroes and "idols of mine", along with Sammy Davis Jr.
