'A success story that could run and run and never repeat itself.' ★★★★ Evening Standard
'Achingly funny…Worth seeing again and again.’ ★★★★★ Time Out
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!!!
Really funny, amazing improvising skills, really good performance
Me and my partner had a amzing time good laugh they so good been put on spot and make our night I would go again
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.
I have seen this show 5times. It is truly brilliant. Hilarious. So clever with great cast members.. And fantastic value for money. Don't miss it!!
