Commentaires : This was a greatly praised revival, with much acclaim for Samantha Spiro, but it was the production itself and the brilliant choreography of Stephen Mear that captured most of the notices. Everyone remarked on the brilliant waiters’ dance and especially the sequence where the cast becomes a steam train, a top hat turns into a chimney, and boaters turn into whirling wheels – described as a moment of “theatrical genius”.
Presse : HENRY HITCHING'S FOR THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Stephen Mear’s crisp choreography and Timothy Sheader’s pacy, clear direction ensure that this is a buoyant production."
PAUL VALE for THE STAGE says, "vivacious, colourful production."
KAT BROWN for THE LONDON PAPER says, "Beautifully staged production."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "It’s really rather wonderful...On opening night it began to rain, leaving me to wonder if Hello, Dolly! would morph too quickly into Bye-Bye Dolly. But no one noticed or cared. It was all too tuneful, too bright, too much fun to be stopped by English wetness."
MAXIE SZALWINSKA for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Jerry Herman's nostalgia-fest of a musical is big, brash and silly, forever teetering on the brink of saccharine. Timothy Sheader's staging offers a pure jolt of light relief, carefully building up audience goodwill with its pretty, sometimes striking stage pictures."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Fresh and likable revival."
