Commentaires : With a first-class cast, much-praised choreography and exciting design making subtle use of projection, this was a very satisfying revival. Those with memories of the quite exceptional National Theatre production sixteen years earlier did find the present show lacking that extra little something, but for everyone else this was superb entertainment. It was originally booked to close at the end of July 2009, but closed a month early, on June 20 th when advance bookings fell away.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Despite Lindsay Posner’s old-fashioned production I was enchanted."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "I've always thought it a flawed masterwork; and so it proves once again in Lindsay Posner's well-sung revival which holds one's attention until the death of the hero, Billy Bigelow, after which the show ascends into the empyrean and the realms of pseudo-art."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Captivated by maybe the finest score even Rodgers ever produced."
LIA MARTLAND for THE STAGE says, "Touching and relatively understated staging...Adam Cooper’s choreography can be disappointingly bland."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Justice has been done to one of the greatest of all musicals."
