Commentaires : The critic, Sheridan Morley, described it as the perfect British antidote to “A Chorus Line”. Where the Broadway show was all about the desperation to succeed at all showbiz costs, the British version is about the quieter pleasures of failure and inefficiency, and the joys of pulling together.
Presse : CHARLES SPENCER of THE DAILY TELEGRAPH described the musical as " Glib and mawkish" and "Underpowered".

THE SUNDAY TIMES described the music as " Sub-Sondheimish" that does not add much to the show.

NICK CURTIS of THE EVENING STANDARD says the show is " low-key, low-brow entertainment."

SARA ABDULLA of TIME OUT disliked the music immensely saying Stepping Out has been saddled with music and lyrics "plumb butt-clenching depths of banality."

BILL HAGERTY of THE NEWS OF THE WORLD liked the show saying "Step lively for an uplifting evening."

BEN DOWELL for THE STAGE says, " Though rather amateurish, this show grows on you."
