Piccadilly Theatre [West End]

“Warm revival of the classic Broadway musical with a winning performance by Miranda Hart.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, Express)

“Feelgood, joyful, corny, gorgeous... The orphans are choreographed with ferocious playfulness and naturalism... terrific.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“As Warbucks, Alex Bourne brings real emotion and a lovely tenor voice to the part; I loved his performance .”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Hart... brings a fruity vigour and eccentricity to the part... Plenty of verve from the younger members of the cast.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Beginning to show its age... Hart, I suspect, has too much heart... An ingenious jigsaw-puzzle design and some good performances”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A rather sickly rags-to-riches story, but Nikolai Foster’s production is smart, vivacious and boasts eye-catching casting.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“A sturdy slice of feel-good... Hart: genuinely, properly funny... a sort of nihilistic loucheness that lights up the stage.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“The heart and soul of the production belong to its pint-sized ensemble... In generally winning hands.”

Matt Wolf (Arts Desk)

“Joyous... On opening night the orphans’ team, with Ruby Stokes as Annie, gave the audience a real punch in the solar plexus.”
