I've never wished for an interval to come so quickly before, not because I needed the toilet but because I wanted to leave. Scenery continuously moving, but the dancing, or should I say, ballet went on and on and on and there was so little actual dialogue (and even then it wasn't very clear).

This is by far the most boring,slow dragging musical I have ever see!! Not the expected Broadway happy music / dance type but a part from a couple of sons the rest is the very slow /sad songs that drag like forever !! Nothing that makes you want to jump from your seat and dance but send you to sleep instead!! Also is not a musical but a night of ballet performance!! What a waste of money!!

What a wonderful show, it just got better.

Acting and scenery for me was spectacular.

My wife and I absolutely loved the show. Our thanks to all who created this wonderful production which clearly gave a lot of pleasure to us and to those who were there watching with us. The visual effects enhanced what was happening on the stage and the choreography was outstanding, as were the dancers. This is a must-see for those who love musical theatre.

We've heard mixed reviews of this show but I can summarise our opinion by saying that it was a great opportunity for an afternoon snooze!

I took my sister for her birthday on Saturday to the matinee. It was fabulous, we could not find fault with anything. The dancing, music, clothes, scenery all fabulous. We never spoke once until the interval we loved it so much (no mean feat keeping us quiet:).

praise for the theatre and staff must also be mentioned - both were exquisite. You really must go.

The dynamics of dance and scenery made for a very interesting performance, dance and choreography was particularly good. During a couple of scenes when two or three male singers were working together their absence of physical performance and closeness of voice made it impossible to be sure who was singing from row 10 in circle. Hope this helps.

I had not visited England for 40 yrs and it is was my Aunt Shelia's 80th birthday - what way to be in England and celebrate a wonderful birthday. American in Paris will always be a memory in my heart and mind. My son Nick builds the sets for Theatre and to see a stage production is always a set to see. Amazing. Simply amazing.

A little slow in the beginning to start, wonderful dancing maybe more ballet, than a musical but wonderful singing and music.enjoyed it thoroughly.

Scenery shifting continuous and irritating, dialogue excessive and inaudible, dancing OK at best, music often screeching occasionally charming, singing - decline to report. Left at interval to save some of the evening.
