After all the good reviews I'd read about it came away disappointed, the music and singing were excellent but didn't rate the plot and couldn't empathize with the characters

The plot seems to be created around the wonderful interpretation of Dylan songs - sometimes seeming to be awkwardly devised for a lame plot to lead into the songs. Great musicians but overall let down by a weak storyline.

This is one NOT to miss. Outstanding performances from the whole cast with some exceptionally strong voices. Sooooo emotional, powerful with a great story.

A wonderful production - loved everything about it. (I did occasionally miss dialogue). The whole cast was excellent but `Elizabeth' was outstanding.

Dylan would approve I am sure.

Definitely will see again if I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity - hope it tours.

Can't say much other than it was fabulous.I struggled to hold myself together at the end. Pulled on your heart strings and the music mixed with acting was tremendous.Well worth the visit from Glasgow.Congratulations Conor and the full cast.

The singing was really beautiful - not a weak link across the cast (and I would award this a 6!) -- and I have been known to leave other musicals at 1/2 time!. I would hope Bob Dylan would be proud if he has heard these interpretations (and the wonderful band). The plot was not as strong (probably a 3) - but didn't feel contrived/made up to support the songs -which I was pleased about. Overall its a HIT.

Great acting.

Magnificent Singing.

First half good, very good band and interesting singing, characters introduced and arouses curiosity. But in second half sentimental unlikely development of all the stock characters except perhaps one. Music continues to be good. The epilogue should be cut, it spoils a dark ending.

Unique, original and haunting. Go and see this. The singing is fantastic and I hope the cast brings out a soundtrack very soon.
