Commentaires : An unusual aspect of the show is that four real audience members are invited on stage to compete in the spelling bee alongside the six young characters. Despite its success in the USA, most London critics were not impressed.
Presse : "Given the Donmar's exemplary musical track record, it is a bit of a shock to find them importing this flimsy, vacuous diversion...the highly forgettable songs seem to be imposed on the action rather than arising organically from it and many of the jokes are just as arbitrary."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"An endearing small-scale musical."
Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"This show is excellent."
Ian Shuttleworth for The Financial Times

"A one-joke show that’s slightly over-extended and too frequently repeated. But it’s also bright, polished and fun ."
Mark Shenton for The Stage

"Director Jamie Lloyd’s decision to stage this glib, candy-floss confection seems unfathomable... most of the characters are little more than glib stereotypes and the show’s mixture of satire and insufferable whimsy struck me as nauseating."
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
