I loved the way Bacharachs songs were reinvented and mixed and overlapped. Such a talented cast . I could watch it all over again. I should add that I accompanied a disabled person who was treated so well by a young man who helped her at the beginning, end and even in the interval. So a wonderful experience for both us.....thank you !

Having grown up with bacharach music for the group I was with 55 ..75 age group we found the music & songs somewhat upbeat and at time extremely loud . But the singers and musicians are extremely talented. More like an American prom music than Cilla & Warwick era. See it whith an open mind. Great Little Theatre

Bacharach completely reimagined in a very clever and flawless performance by Kyle's team. Bacharach's DNA is undiminished and come through strongly. To sum up I can only say brilliant! Go and see this before it closes.

Fantastic young talent. Musically and perfect timing. Added a fresh touch to the music of Bacharach with vitality and smiles. the whole cast looked liked they were really enjoying performing. A well deserved standing ovation at the end. Loved it.

Saw this today, all members of the cast were fantastic. The time flew by and I would highly recommend anyone that likes Bacharach music to go and see it.

I don't have a single Bacharach track in my possession; yet I seriously enjoyed this production. The cast were wonderfully talented, the music upbeat, jazzily acoustic (with a bit of Hendrix!), easy to watch and hear without being 'Easy Listening'. The lead performer Kyle Riabko was the driving force, demonstrating incredible vocal and guitar skills. A great night out.
