Phoenix Theatre [West End]

“Sensationally good production of Webber and Rice's greatest musical that has more than a touch of star quality.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, Express)

“A fleet, robust, beautifully constructed show... This revival... reminds you forcibly of that... Sharply energetic.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“The staging is remarkably robust and sharp, with an edge and an operatic sweep... Fluent and full of fraught energy.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Hatton certainly gives the role some welly in Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright’s slickly efficient touring production.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Schiaretti narrates her journey with wonderful fluency as Che, inhabiting his potentially-awkward role with ease.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Frisson of topicality... little to latch on to in emotional terms... She elbows aside much of our sympathy early on.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Neither the personal nor the political dimensions attain any depth... Gets the material across.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“Still provokes a tear or two... All about Miss Hatton, who has plunged herself completely into the role. She is worth catching.”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)

“Resolutely stuck in the past... makes no effort to bring any fresh perspective... Workaday efficiency.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“Cold, uninspired revival... There's nothing to care about in these performances. No detail, no depth of character.”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)
