I accompanied my friend, who has limited mobility and needs a wheelchair, to see Showboat on Wednesday 10th August. The show was superb, the singing was excellent and the theatre staff fantastic. We were personally chaperoned to our seats, with great respect and enthusiasm, thank you Cai. Unfortunately my friend needed first aid, thank you Ben and all the staff for your kindness and support. We had a wonderful afternoon thanks to you and the team. Well done to everyone who works relentlessly everyday with the general public.

Wonderful show - cannot understand why it is being taken off.

My friends and I who saw it recently would gladly come again. Congratulations to the cast - they were all marvellous.

Saw Showboat last night , far too many empty seats for what turned out to be a superb show certainly in every way superior to the Palladium offering of a few years ago. OK there were no big names but even with the announced early closing the cast threw themselves into it heart and soul unlike other closing shows we have seen. Scenery simple but so effective story line faithfully followed . We just wish we had time to see it again before it closes. Thank you everyone concerned!

If you haven't seen this get there quickly before it comes off. Show boat has been one of my favourite musicals sine I took part in an amateur performance many years ago, but this was something different. The interactions and emotions of black and white were lived by everyone in the theatre. Brilliant

I have been to see Show Boat 5 times and it is absolutely brilliant. It is a musical that is a must to see and well worth every penny of the ticket price.

I have to say I just do not understand why when this show is so brilliant that it is closing at the end of August after such a short run just absolute madness when it is so good.

I visited the New London Theatre on Saturday evening and can honestly say that SHOW BOAT was absolutely brilliant. The Singing, acting, dancing, choreography, direction, sets, wardrobe, everything was wonderful, this production moved me to tears! Show Boat is my favourite musical of all time, I have the 1920/30's copy with Paul Robeson and the 1950's poster with Ava Gardner, this show brought back so many memories. I live in Derbyshire and unfortunately missed the Sheffield production, but loved this so much I am trying to find a way to see it again. Thank you everybody you are wonderful.
