This is the most fun that I had at the Theatre in years! Amazing, Incredible, Awesome, Hilarious! Cast is so talented! Amazing that they can put together a storey line and songs at the spur of the moment from suggestions from the audience! Amazing, Incredible, Awesome, Hilarious! This a performance that you don’t want to ever miss! Bravo!!!

I went for the 6th or so time last night and it was as amazing as ever! Honestly better than any scripted musicals I’ve ever been to. Like with all improv there is a frisson of excitement and danger that it might all fall apart, which makes it all the more spectacular to see such a creative and well performed emotional rollercoaster!

A cracking night with bizarre yet brilliant twists and turns in a constantly morphing musical. Disappointing that we didn't know many of the musicals chosen by some of the audience members intimately (and I do wonder who else did - kudos to the troop for knowing them all), but the Hamilton turn was absolutely superb! Total must see for a musical variant on improv.
