Didn't enjoy this much. Couldn't understand the dialogue, lots of shouting and jumping around, they never sang a complete song until the end. Singing wasn't great, instruments on stage were not played - we had poor seats up in the balcony so couldn't get into this at all - shame.

Saw the show today, was a bit concerned prior to going with some poor reviews and how it was like a school play....

The show was great, fast set changes, slick story - not as far from the film story line as I was told, the cast worked their sock off to deliver a fantastic production with so much energy passion and vigor.

I have never left a review before but felt compelled to as this was such a good show and felt personally some of the other reviews gave such a disservice to the production and cast

One of the best show I have ever seen.

Thought the show boring and like a school production. We went for the music but until the last 20 minutes there wasn't any! Just kids arguing and shouting. Having said that when they did sing and play music for the last 20 minutes they were very good musicians.

Absolutely brilliant show! As a Dubliner I was delighted by how well Dublin life was represented, and the music was simply fantastic! I thought the casting was brilliant, other than the lead who unfortunately had one of the worst feigned Irish accents I've ever heard. It actually made me cringe when he said certain things and in general I found his onstage presence awkward.

I believe he is new to the part in the last few weeks so perhaps that has something to do with it.

Anyway, other than him the play was brilliant - full of energy and humour and I left the theatre with the biggest smile on my face.

What a brilliant show! Great singing, Great songs, and very funny as well. Great fun from start to finish. Be aware this is a theatrical adaptation of the film not an exact copy. I loved the film and I loved this as well.

Really disliked this from the first few mins. Very childish , very distasteful humour. I love the songs and soul/Motown music which is why I went to see it but extremely disappointed with the show, so much so that I went home at the interval. That's the first time I have ever done that during a show
