South Pacific was the only show last year I walked out on. God Awful. Dave Willets was unbearably poor and the show was worse than am-dram. Just dreadful.

Love Love 42nd Street... but I wish they'd lavish it up and properly do it on a big West End stage.

I just went on the UKP website. For a second I thought I'd vomited on my monitor. But know, the vomit was just in my mouth, with a tiny bit on my chin.

One of the cheapest companies to take tours around the UK.
Avoid!

I saw this when they were touring it a couple of years ago.

To be fair the youngsters in the cast were giving it everything they had. But the wider production values were weak and I tend to avoid their tours now.

*shudders - thinkimg about Carousel with Darren Day and Sam Kane*

One of the big deals about 42nd Street is all those dancing feet..when there's about six, I think perhaps the impact may be lost a little
