5.0 star rating Sylvester Ponniah from London, England


I was lucky enough to see the show in Manchester twice. It was amazing. Some story points were slightly different to the original movie, but we got to see things from a different viewpoint, as well. All the original soundtrack really immersed you into the nostalgic memories and feelings you had of seeing the first movie, when you were younger. The new songs were fantastic. I really wanted to get up and dance. At some points, I felt I was actually in the movie, my eyes watering at the most emotive scenes in my childhood memories. It is a must see. So, of course, I had to see it all again in London. The stage is smaller, but the impact is just as impressive. I am hoping to go again in September. A fan or a new viewer, not only your kids are gonna love it. So be there or be square. History has changed.

5.0 star rating Stuart McNeal from London, England


This is absolutely brilliant. Just like the film but on stage. The cast is perfectly blended and matched again like the movie. You will come out and want to go again and two bits stand out. The first time the car gets to 88mph. It blows your mind because you don’t expect it in the perfect quality and style it is. Then 15mins from the end I can’t tell a lie the theatre made a loud gasping noise and everyone was like oh my god (in a good way) and I was in tears it was that magical and intense it actually made me a 41 year old cry in amazement and just the pure magic of the last 10mins. Think theatre with magic and massive illusion with a great story and music and your gonna fall in love all over again. Definitely rewrites theatre and musicals as we all know it. Brilliant brilliant brilliant

5.0 star rating Charlie Kirk from London, England


For anyone who loved the film this is a must see. I can’t remember a more brilliantly realised musical adaptation of a movie. What a show!

5.0 star rating Stephen Hurren from Colchester Essex


Mind blowing, truly amazing affects, a must see for any fan or anyone,

5.0 star rating Andy from Portsmouth, England


This was just great fun. I read some professional reviews that the score was a bit lacking, and I guess a few of the songs were just so-so, but overall we were highly entertained. It generally follows the storyline of the movie with a couple of tweaks and some scenes melded together due to the limitations of a stage performance. But if you loved the movie, you surely can't fail to love seeing it all unfold in front of you on stage, hearing the songs from the movie, and witnessing the frankly astonishing effects. How do you make a car go 88mph on a stage? I recommend you go to see for yourself! I've shown my kids the movies, which they really enjoyed, and they were equally as impressed as I was

Great show made me feel happy. Cast were excellent, well staged, music and effects were so good. The whole audience were up on there feet , felt like we had a great night out.

5.0 star rating Becky from Derby, England


I can't recommend this musical highly enough, it was absolutely fantastic. The view from our seats from the front row of the Upper Circle were great and good value if you don't want to spend too much. It was so good we booked to go again the day after seeing it! (dress circle this time so we can see the expressions better) My 12 year old loved it too. The cast, staging, songs, effects, everything was brilliant. If you love the film, you'll love this show.
