Commentaires : This was a touring production which had originated at Northampton Theatre, and had been on the road for some nine months before coming into London.
During its tour Toyah Wilcox caused some disappointment to her fans and discontent among some provincial managers when she suddenly left the show to appear in “I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here”. However, the extra publicity from the television show persuaded the powers-that-be to bring the show into the West End. It was criticised for its touring scenery, and inevitably Toyah Wilcox was compared unfavourably to Doris Day in the film version, but all in all her performance was mostly praised, though the show itself had a luke-warm reception.
Presse : MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "The show's saving graces are Sammy Fain's score and Craig Revel Horwood's choreography."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "She [Toyah Willcox ] is the bubbling epicentre of Ed Curtis’s relentlessly larky production."

PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Hit-and-miss."

PATRICK MARMION for TIME OUT says, "Toyah Willcox is horribly miscast as Calamity."
