This was a birthday treat with my family in tow and I couldn’t have been happier. My daughter and I were first out of our seats to give this show the thundering standing ovation it so richly deserved. The leads were outstanding supported by a great cast. I have seen plenty of good productions of South Pacific but none finer than this.

Had the pleasure of seeing this show yesterday evening 20th August. Had a mission getting to the venue due to train strikes. Alas it was,worth it a truly magical experience absolutely loved the whole performance and the stunning musicians made it even better. Absolute classic movie and even better stage show with a powerful message a true masterpiece.

Such energy from the excellent cas! I loved the songs, the humour - in fact everything! Interesting, because of the racial issues and it showed how much we’ve moved on.

A very powerful musical still showing the same message as Rogers an Hammerstein. Julian Ovenden was absolutely great. What a fab voice.

Thoroughly enjoyed the musical. Full of great singing and dancing with well known songs and full orchestra. Sudden happy ending but wished the cast could have sung again with their bows.

Absolutely wonderful. Have know this musical since I was a kid and it was wonderful to see it on stage. The man who play The Frenchman's voice was of opera quality. Top notch. Best musical I have seen for a very long time. Only criticism is that the second half is a bit short and I think they could have repeated a couple of the 'belters' in the second half or at least in the finale.

A delightful and heart-warming revival of the classic show. They surely don’t write lyrics and Melodie’s like these any more. Superb voices and great interpretation of the story, with the welcome addition of contemporary dance. Heartily recommended.
