    THIS SPECTACULARLY RAVISHING SHOW HAS RHYTHM, ROMANCE AND RAZZLE-DAZZLE. In Christopher Wheeldon’s super-slick production, the spectacle keeps on coming, surprising and delighting. It soars to exhilar­ating heights of brilliance that must be seen to be believed.
Georgina Brown, MAIL ON SUNDAY
    "IT’S GOT STARLIGHT, IT’S GOT SWEET DREAMS AND, YES, IT’S GOT RHYTHM TOO! You almost feel you couldn’t ask for anything more but this Gershwin musical also has that indefinable something called grace and a joie de vivre that lifts it, and us, all night long.”
Anne Treneman, THE TIMES
    “This superb show is a riot of colour and movement, with irresistible dance routines and a wealth of Gershwin classics.”  
Michael Billington, THE GUARDIAN
    "The classic Gene Kelly movie has been transformed into a joyous and colourful and heart-warming musical." 
Eleanor Bley Griffiths, RADIO TIMES
    "FULL OF DANCE, ROMANCE AND GLORIOUS GERSHWIN. This is a richly satisfying show, delivered with heart and flair."
David Jays, THE SUNDAY TIMES
    "A WHIRL OF COLOUR AND IMAGERY. Based on the 1951 Gene Kelly film, the stage musical reframes the romance as a dream of postwar optimism, while dancing through the wonders of the Gershwin back catalogue."  
Zoë Anderson, THE INDEPENDENT
    “A LUXURIOUS, SUMPTUOUS MUSICAL MASTERPIECE. It’s pure joy and the classiest show to hit London in years.”
Paul Phear, SMOOTH RADIO
