    We loved the show and being at The Globe never disappoints. The Fire Tree was beautifully portrayed by an enthusiastic and professional cast. Despite the rain, it oozed all the magic of Christmas and was a great memory gift for our Australian guests. Thank you and Happy New Year! X

    I was not impressed with the performance.It was too long for the children and could have been more engaging and interactive.The biggest prop on stage was that of death!!!!And especially before Christmas!Unfortunately,I would not recommend the performance,very disappointed indeed.
