Presse : In The Times, Dominic Maxwell wrote: 'Do we need an Only Fools and Horses musical? Frankly, these days we could do with all the fun we can get. Which is why it's such a shame that this effort by Paul Whitehouse and Jim Sullivan — son of the great sitcom's creator and writer, John Sullivan — is such an odd mix of the tried-and-tested and the new-and-half-cocked. It's got lovely moments. It's got moments you wouldn't buy off the back of a three-wheeled van.'
Mark Lawson in the Guardian said: 'The finest collection of vintage gags on the London stage should allow the show to make a fair amount of what Del Boy calls 'lovely jubbly'. But, as a musical, a few too many of the songs are, to borrow again from the Trotter lingo, plonkers.'
And Dominic Cavendish in the Daily Telegraph wrote: 'Only generous-hearted fools and die-hard fans need apply within for this endearing but theatrically under-achieved stage-musical version of the much-loved BBC sitcom.'
However, Rachael Bletchly was more positive in the Daily Mirror, writing: 'Del's still got the sheepskin but still 'hasn't got a pot to p*** in', Grandad's back in his armchair, suffering with his Chalfonts, and Rodders is still punching above his weight romancing classy Cassandra, played by Pippa Duffy.
'But now they're all singing and dancing too, truly making this joyous nostalgic romp down Hooky Street the creme de la menthe. No wonder tickets are as rare as a genuine Rolex in Del's suitcase.'
Alun Hood wrote in WhatsOnStage: 'It's not a well-crafted musical in the traditional sense but then you'd expect a stage life of the Peckham Trotters to be a bit rough-round-the-edges. It has heart, wit and warmth by the bucketload.'
And Mark Shenton for London Theatre said: 'Just how much you warm to it will largely depend on your wish to revisit a beloved TV series in this new but hardly revelatory format.
'As directed and choreographed by Caroline Jay Ranger, the pace is uneven; songs fail to emerge organically out of the action, but feel bolted onto a version of a TV script.'
