Definitely 5 Star, more if I could! Can’t give too much away but this show exceeded all expectations. We saw both parts on the one day & would recommend doing this. Congratulations to all involved in the production.

What a fantastic 2 part play. It was magical from start to finish. Waited a long tome to see it and my goodness it was worth the wait. Won’t spoil anything but if you get the chance to go grab it. I can’t praise it...More

The show was brilliant. So glad I was able to experience it. #keepthesecrets The theatre was beautiful but the seating was cramped and it got very uncomfortably hot. The play is long and I can understand how these two factors made some people irritated. I...More

Just go watch Wicked or something instead. Don’t sit on the balcony unless you want to be extremely uncomfortable for 5hrs. No leg room at all so your legs seize up and you have someone else’s knees in the back of your head. You also...More

The show was excellent if a little long. But I guess putting it into two shows increases revenue and as it's so difficult to get tickets, every show is a sell-out. I think it could have been squeezed into one long show. Security meant a...More
