Arts [Fringe]

“The anti-war movement’s hopeless howl... A snapshot of our times... Surprisingly nuanced, haunting. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Sharp-witted version that throbs with some of the energy of a rock gig... Vibrant company and instrumentalists... Pulsating. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Sidwell is superbly cast as the anti-establishment, angst-ridden, Mohawk-topped Johnny. He commands the stage. ”

What's on Stage (Other reviewers)

“Green Day musical has enough wit and warmth to attract a mainstream audience. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“An impressionistic blur... lots of frenetic flashing lights but not enough heart... There's no faulting the young, sexy cast. ”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, Express)

“Rough and ready... Plews has her cast generate a fearsome energy that never relents... Sidwell causes sparks to fly. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Sizzling with sounds of disaffection and anger... loud and undeniably energising but not so much angry as relentlessly perky. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“A high octane, tinnitus-inducing performance... Has no more political or social analysis than High School The Musical. ”

Patrick Marmion (Time Out, Daily Mail)

“Does have pace and punch... the live, loud music proves how often Green Day deliver a tuneful hook and an emotional slug. ”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)
