1.0 star rating Nicola from London, England


I can’t believe that this London “show” charges so much money for what it is!!! Absolutely awful!!! At best it would be good for a 1 year old. Anyone older than 1 would not find this entertaining at all. I was literally counting down the minutes for this repetitive “show” to be over. Paid £90 for tickets and I’m still in shock at how bad it was.

1.0 star rating Sean Gough from Norwich, England


My 4 year old grandson was clearly bored and, judging by the lack of engagement from children around us, so were most the audience. Unbelievably thin content, zero humour that you would actually laugh at, and treatment of the audience as if they're imbeciles. A very cynical marketing exercise. Avoid. What's concerning, is it it was a given positive reviews by the guardian and timeout. It does make you wonder what's motivating some critics.

1.0 star rating John Brown from Belfast, NI


Went to see this in Belfast with family. Absolutely awful… not slick, not entertaining and rarely funny. The quality of set and acting wouldn’t have been passable for a performance in a school hall let alone the Ulster hall. The acting was awful, there has to be a way of telling a story without patronising everyone there!

1.0 star rating Carrie from London, England


Awful adaptation of a fabulous story. It was boring, amateur, awkward singing interaction and young Sophie was interpreted by a +50 year old lady! Very disappointing. Profesional prices for a very amateur play that could come easily from a high school performance. Do not bother to waste your time & money.

1.0 star rating Tom from London, England


The book is an absolute classic, full of dignity and charm. This adaption is the polar opposite, it's cheap, repetitive, boring and the wonderful characters from the book are butchered on the stage. Avoid.

1.0 star rating Traumatised from London, England


I was squirming with second-hand embarrassment that my cheeks probably went red. My mum (child's grandmother) cringed really hard too. Super bad acting and just very, very weird. Even within the first 5 minutes it was odd, and it just got worst at time went on. And they just dragged out the horrendous acting of the tiger really slowly strutting everywhere like he was forward moonwalking. Very odd. We were waiting to get out really to save face from further cringe. How this is in London West End is beyond me, do not recommend. I'm writing this almost a year later, and I still think about my second-hand embarrassment!
