Presse : NICOLAS DE JONGE for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "A weeping melodrama that bursts out in a riot of forgettable tunes, unexceptional songs and dreary dance routines."

JONATHAN MYERSON for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Adrian Noble's staging is magnificent, using sliding screens and waltzing doorways to say everything you need to know about the darkness of the house and the hopes buried in the garden." He goes on to say, "This is family entertainment - something for everyone though rarely everything for someone."

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Norman's lyrics may occasionally plod, but Simon's music stays upbeat and agreeably tuneful."

CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Irresistible - but it could have been better." He goes on to say, "By the end, intellectual resistance to The Secret Garden has become futile, as the tear-ducts start pumping out the briny. You'll be needing your tissues."
