“Immensely powerful... a grim story packaged by John Kander, Fred Ebb and David Thompson into a jaunty musical framework.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“This is a hurtling journey into hell; I urge you to buy a ticket.”

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

“It is lavishly cheerful yet poignant. As moral outrage, it’s riveting.”

Patrick Marmion (Time Out, Daily Mail)

“Truly unmissable Broadway import that makes for a bracing, brilliant evening of musical theatre”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Not an easy watch, but then neither should it be.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Rush to see this ingenious, pain-filled, feel-good show but be prepared to be ambushed by ambivalence.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Mines the dark, brutal humour to an entirely merited and an almost uncomfortably provocative degree.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Rarely do form and content dance such an intimate, dangerous tango.”

What's on Stage (Other reviewers)

“The music is magnificent... The Boys themselves are a quiet, dignified triumph.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
