I've seen it twice (Once in Newcastle in 2007 and then last October in Sunderland). It's quite a good production. I enjoyed it.

Ive always been put off seeing it because I love the original Disney production and everything about this looks cheap....but it does get pretty good word of mouth so maybe worth a look

My friend has a cousin in it, she went to see him in it in liverpool...

when i asked whether i should check it out i was yelled at
"AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!"

its apparently awful, tho if you like to see its original orchestraions played by a band of i think 7.... 4 of which were keyboards and click tracks then go!!

Oh god, I never saw the original production and I was worried seeing this simpler version might give me a bad image of the show in general!
I think I might hold out and see if I can get comps for a London show this weekend!

I saw this production a couple of year ago (?)...DON'T GO.

cheap, nasty...disrespectful to the paying public.
