Yes, this is like panto, it's far from serious and just like marmite - you'll either love or hate it. We loved it - four brothers - and there is so much simple boy humour. Dog was awesome - Warhorse, move over! Lead actress SHOULD go on the X Factor! A completely weird send up of all that have anything to do with the X Factor, well done Harry!

Took my mum to see this for her Mother's Day gift. An extremely great production. Had us laughing from start to finish, and the cast were absolutely amazing.

Brilliant musical...i would definitely give it a 4.5/5. A MUST SEE!!!

' I can't sing' should be extended to I can't dance nor act nor entertain. The content was puerile, not even the 6 year olds behind me were laughing. There was even a talking puppet dog that kept biting crotches...pathetic. Even the costumes and staging was poor. Never walked out a show I have paid 65 quid for but I quickly become irritated, it was unbearable and left in the interval.

If you are expecting to see a musical like Les Mis then don't bother going to the show! If you want a fun night out watching the tongue in cheek piss take of the X Factor then prepare yourself for a great night out!!!! The cast are excellent and you can tell that they are enjoying themselves as much as the audience. My wife and I loved the show. Hats off to Simon Cowell for letting himself be parodied in this way. Hope you all have a long successful run!!!!

Absolute garbage. I felt sorry for this decent cast who had to carry this appalling pantomime. Harry Hill should find himself a desert island now and ponder on what is and what isn't funny. I can't Sing is about amusing as bubonic plague. Avoid at all costs.

Went to see this show with my Sister last Friday and we went with an open mind. The first half of the show was a bit boring in parts but the second half was much better. There are a lot of funny laugh out loud moments but also a bit crude in parts. I just laughed every time I looked at 'Louis Walsh' Ashley Knight had him off to a tee!

Alll in alll it's fun and very tongue in cheek and do what we did go with an open mind!

Simply the worst thing I have ever seen at the theatre!!! We were upgraded and it was obvious why, the theatre was far from full. It is an insult to theatre goers to put this rubbish on.

me and a group of freinds went to the opening of the show and waited outside and it appeared that we was the only people there we find out 20 minutes later that the show was cancelled due to the producers thought the show wasn't ready for a public viewing then we ordered tickets for the 17/3/14 and it went on but after the Interval a guy came on to the stage and told us that the show cant go on because of technical difficulties

but have to say the first bit of the show was really really good im not sure if im going to book soon gonna wait a bit and order again hopefully it doesnt happen again

Spectacular light hearted fun. Definitely recommend if you have your sense of humour to hand and know the TV show. Just be prepared to jump on and enjoy the ride. I revelled in the ambitious stage sets, great choreography, superb singing and torrent of humour from the lame to the surreal. A great feel good night! Love to see again.

Ok....the sets were great but the dialogue between the songs was awful. If you like Harry Hill's humour then you will enjoy the show. The female lead sang beautifully,but, if i had paid full price for my tickets i would have been disappointed.I go to the theatre frequently and i have to add, it just felt like a huge ego trip for Mr Cowell .
