Alison
The cast made the show

The show was extremely good, first class. Unusual start enjoyed it very much.However, the cast for that performance was second to none. The best cast ever.Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins made the show.They excelled.The other cast members were very good too, especially Nicholas Lyndhurst.

Phenomenal

Good value for money. The whole cast was top notch, not just the big names. Enjoyed every moment and would recommend it most highly to anyone. Shame it is not a long runner!

A great evening with Kathryn and Alfie

Although the storyline is sad, the music is great.Alfie Boe was outstanding - always a great singer but surprised at how good his acting was.Ballet routine by the daughter was brilliant

A wonderful experience

Having seen several productions of Carousel in the past, this was far and away the best performance.Alfie Boe was outstanding and though Katherine Jenkins acting was reported to be weak, she more than matched him.

A little disappointing

I would have liked singing from the two leads, who were excellent. Maybe a full cast rendition of " when you walk through a storm " at the end would have finished it off nicely........such a lovely song !

A must see

A brilliant show. I took my husband who is not a musical show enthusiast and he said we must do this again as he enjoyed it so much. A bit disappointed that Alfie wasn't well even so the show was epic had me crying at the end and husband emotional

fantastic

I had never seen this show before so was looking forward to it and l was not disappointed. The set was well worked, the chorus and dancing brilliant. Katherine Jenkins. Alfie Boe and all the cast were brilliant. Unfortunately Alfie Boe was taken ill half way through the show, however his understudy fitted in perfectly and deserved all the applause he recieved.

Bringing back memories

We didn't think that Katherine and Alfie's great voices lend themselves to musical theatre and the scenery was very disappointing. Appreciate the show is only for a short period but it felt like a budget production

Quality!

Excellent production all round although my enjoyment of the performance was significantly marred by the sad collapse of a guest close by. Unfortunately it took 20 minutes for the staff to be in a position to move her.

Absolutely amazing there was no area in which I felt it could be improved

It fulfilled all my expectations and more, the orchestra, chorus, dancers were all at the top of their game. The leads were perfect for their roles.Thank you everyone for a wonderful experience
