The show was excellent the theatre very uncomfortable the seating in row B of the dress circle has little or no legroom and the seats are uncomfortable, this detracted from the show

This was simply the best thing I have seen on the stage for a long time. It made me cry, laugh and fully understand the true story on what happened to the 9 Scottboros boys. I went with my friend for my birthday. I met some the cast after the matinee show on 14 January and thank them for their wonderful performance's. The singing, dancing and acting was brilliant and I was so happy that I went on to see the show on my birthday. Once again may I thank the cast and everyone else involved with the show a big thank you. well done.

It was amazing. I came into the show knackered after a long day at college but was simply just impossible to have a nap whilst the show was going on. Every part of me was engaged from the moment the stage opened up till the curtains closed.

When my friend said she had booked this show I googled it and due to the content thought I was in for a couple of hours of doom and gloom. Was I mistaken. The cast were absolutely wonderful singers and dancers and the pathos of what they had to endure shone through. A wonderful show.

Really enjoyed this musical, very funny in parts and heartbreaking in others. Loads of energy and feel good songs as well as moving and thought provoking ones. Would definitely go again, without doubt! My only complaint is towards the end it gets a bit heavy going and feels a teeny bit dragged out, but it is totally worth it!

Lovely music, superbly performed by the orchestra. The problem with this show is the Book: it creaks along untheatrically, and seems at odds with the musical numbers. If I had seen this show in a Fringe theatre, I should have probably have enjoyed it much more: it seems too intimate for a West End Theatre like the Garrick. BEWARE: The view from seats in the Grand/Upper Circle that are not central is very poor - some of the stage is hidden from view!
