The use of music composed by Benji Bower and directed by Brian Hargreaves was one of the best decisions made, as every song was upbeat, clear, and easy to dance along to in your seat. These should have been further utilised as moments of energy and excitement so that stillness and attention was better managed during scenes solely of dialogue.
Elanor Higgins' lighting design was simplistic and effective, incorporating projection and even a sparkly surprise into some sections!
Running until the 2nd January 2024 in London, this is a good option for some families' holiday outing, but may be a little too raucous for others.
