“A jewel... perfectly served by this delicate revival... The performances are simply delicious... Utterly heavenly.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Playful and delightful... This gloriously over-achieving small venue surpasses itself... Surely bound for a West End transfer.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“An exquisitely realised staging of a show that is musical theatre perfection... A fragrant delight.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Full of irresistible treats. Characters to love, properly funny jokes, soaring melodies and fabulously witty lyrics... Lovely.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“With the crystalline force and beauty of her rich soprano and with her expert timing, Scarlett Strallen can break your heart.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“The most deeply felt, penetratingly acted version of the piece imaginable... Broadway-style pizzazz... Elegant filigree.”

Matt Wolf (Arts Desk)

“It is hard to imagine a more beguiling staging of this macaroon musical: light and crisp and colourful... No lazy moments.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Heavenly: easy on eye and ear... The comic acting is top-notch... Schmaltz is repeatedly avoided by the witty lyrics.”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)

“White’s production is a charmer from start to finish... We smell a hit. Expect this one to transfer.”

West End Whingers

“Delectable... One third of the way in, the whole production just raises itself up a notch... Something special.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“A delight... Gains from the intimacy of the Menier and the skilfulness of White’s staging... A seductive, old-world charm.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A gossamer-thin plot and few numbers in wide circulation... Takes a while to seduce fully... I became increasingly smitten. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Bock’s score and Harnick’s lyrics are bouncy and innocent in the manner of golden-age musicals... Comes up smelling of roses.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“Gorgeously giftwrapped production... Endlessly inventive, pun-tastic lyrics and a memorable score... Scenes of stilted flirting.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)
