Commentaires : Reviews for the production were mixed, although there was unanimous praise for the amazing special effects by Paul Kieve. However, the public word-of-mouth was strong, attendances continued to grow, and the show received five Olivier nominations. In January 2012 Mark Evans and Siobhan Dillon took over the leads while Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy began rehearsals for a Broadway transfer. The Broadway production opened on April 23rd 2012 (previews from March 15th). The role of Oda Mae was performed by
Da’Vine Joy Randolph (who had played the role in the West End in December and January whilst Sharon D. Clarke was on leave.)
Presse : "It mostly lacks: heart and soul. For the rest, one is left to gawp at the ingenuity of Paul Kieve's illusions."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"This may not be a great musical, but it is a highly entertaining one that looks set to keep audiences laughing, gasping and sniffing back tears for a long time to come."
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph

"Worth going to?...I’d say yes – provided that...you are not expecting anything too subtle or classical."
Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

"Paul Kieve's illusions thrill...It's all seamlessly inventive and full of synaesthetic pleasures, but it can't fully compensate for the shallowness in other departments."
Paul Taylor for The Independent

"With superb special effects and engaging performances, Matthew Warchus's production certainly has plenty of dazzle." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standrad
