'NOTHING MATCHES IT'
New York Times
'AN EVENING OF UNADULTERATED BLISS
Writer Dennis Kelly and composer and lyricist Tim Minchin go to the top of the class with this anarchically joyous, gleefully nasty and ingenious musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s story.'
Matthew Warchus’s colourful riot of a production achieves an even dizzier balance between gleeful, grotesque, fun and heart-tugging poignancy, brilliantly drilled dynamism and warm, unforced charm.’
‘THE QUEST FOR A GREAT NEW MUSICAL IS OVER.’
'SMART, QUIRKY AND SUBLIMELY GOOD FUN.
A moving and subtle spectacle which will have kids in stitches and adults in tears. It is guaranteed to delight anyone who’s ever been a child. I can’t wait to see it again.’
‘AN ABSOLUTE CRACKER OF A SHOW, BURSTING WITH DYNAMISM, FIZZING WITH VERVE.
Irresistible and ingenious.’
‘HILARIOUS, MOVING, GLORIOUS.
Matthew Warchus’s thrilling, warm-hearted production, exuberantly designed by Rob Howell, with pin-sharp choreography by Peter Darling, combines comedy with a sense of wonder. This show indeed has something miraculous about it.’
Roars of approval shake the theatre.’
