Commentaires : The message that a life of drug abuse, nightclubbing and promiscuous sex will leave you ravaged and lonely came over more as a warning than a sermon, and the Pet Shop Boys’ songs received much praise. However, this was very much aimed at a niche market.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says the show, “Brings a rush of excitement and daring to London's musical theatre.”

SUSANNAH CLAPP for The OBSERVER says, “It delivers its tat with fervour, and its giftedness lightly: the music is better, the rhymes sharper than most of what cruises round the West End. It's essence of camp.”

CAITLIN MORAN for THE TIMES says, “The first half was perfect. It was fluffy and meant nothing……The second half, however, sadly and rapidly descended into I-have-something-to-say-itis.

BRIAN LOGAN for TIME OUT says, "It's mostly likeable alternative to 'Fame', 'The King and I' and all those other circles of London's very own musical hell." “

KATE BASSETT for THE INDEPENDENT did not like it at all saying, “This West End venture is an excruciating failure.” And goes on to say, “The lyrics are so banal that muddy amplification is a mercy.” And continues, “Barber shamelessly hams it up. Keating, supposedly a lust-magnet, is a lacklustre non-entity. Others are charmless cartoons.”
