The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole reviews
Nigel was the best so talented all cast amazing side splitting have not laughed so much in ages thank you
I wasn't quite sure what to expect before I came to see The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, but the show exceeded my expectations. All the cast were brilliant - especially Adrian and Pandora
Great musical! My 11 and 14 y.o boys and I laughed with tears. Strongly recommend for children from 11-12 yo and adults!
Fantastic show, so much laughter and a good time by all. The actor's were amazing cannot believe how much the young actors did so professionally. It was much more than expected.
Absolutely loved it, went with my husband and our 15 year old son and from the first scene to the last it was fantastic! Great him out for all ages.
We totally loved it!
Amazing cast and very funny, enjoyed it very much😁
Such fun, thoroughly laughed! Took my 12 & 14 year old, enjoyed it although as a lot of the banter is from the 80/90’s didn’t get all of if, but still a hit. Nativity seen was my best part, and I think our nanny totally relayed with the nanny on stage. Well done to all, thanks for a great afternoon
Wow, what an amazing show and amazing cast. We had a wonderful time and smiled throughout!
I booked on the recommendation of a friend. It was hilarious in places, sad in others, a rite of passage
Colourful energetic and fun! Excellent cast. Singing and dancing from all was superb! Adrian was, as I remembered him from the books, full of angst coupled with philosophical acceptance of his lot. A lovely musical with lots of humour which should appeal to all.
The funniest thing I have ever seen. You can take anyone any age to see this amazing quintessentially British Show.
Loved the show, very funny with an amazing cast x
Show was very good - funny throughout.
Great show,really enjoyed it.would definitely recommend to friends.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this show. I enjoyed reading the original books growing up in the 80’s but didn’t know how this would come across on stage. I can honestly say it was brilliant. Funny, fun and a real feel good vibe. Loved it!
Brilliant show, went with my 13 year old son. Fantastic, talented cast, humorous throughout. Shame it’s not on longterm as I’d highly recommend it for all ages!
What a fantastic show, brilliant cast, very funny. What a wonderful afternoon I had.
What a fantastic show all round (10/10) from the brilliant music and lyrics so cleverly written. An excellent cast who were all brilliant and performed exceptionally well especially Adrian who was on the stage 99% of the time. The hilarious Mr Lucas played by John Hopkins, stole the show again in a multiple of charactures he played having us all in stiches.
I mean, what a performance! Michael’s Adrian Mole was such an exciting pleasure to watch! He was played exactly as I always imagined whilst reading the diaries. Thank you!
The show was brilliant as well as the cast. Especially Pandora (Matilda Hopkins) and Nigel (Cuba Kamanu) 💝. As well as brilliant it was also extremely funny, very well done. We went twice as it was my granddaughters birthday🎂🥂🎂
Fantastic production. I was a bit worried as my 11 year old son didn't know who Adrian Mole was or what it would be about and it was also his first time going to the theatre, but he loved it. Would highly reccomend.
I never read the books or saw the tv series but was aware of the stories. It does not matter. This is a funny romping look at growing up .The songs were catchy, moved well , outstanding performances from the cast who play multiple roles The set is economic and is moved seamlessly by all cast. .a great night out.
Really great entertainment for a Saturday evening. Good humour and we thought the small cast did an excellent job with not only acting but changing the stage sets at the same time.
I took my 12 year old granddaughter although we enjoyed it and thought it amusing I wasn’t happy with the sexual connotations also the nativity scene with that red plastic placenta was revolting and unnecessary
As a fans of all things Adrian Mole for 40 plus years we looked forward to seeing him immortalised in music. The show was very good and the character of Adrian was very well portrayed alongside all the other popular figures. The first half was enjoyable but the second half was fantastic. The finale had the audience up on our feet and dancing to the music . A great night.
I took my eleven year old Granddaughter. My Granddaughter commented that she thought it was true to the book she had just finished. However, I did think as a Grandparent that the relationship between the husband and the Neighbour was taken a bit too far and could have been toned down a bit for children to watch! Otherwise a great performance.
Excellent , really funny , worth seeing
