Dont get too excited......
**Featuring songs from Roy Orbison, The Shadows, Eddie Cochran, Billy Fury, Chuck Berry and many more.

In 1961 emotions run high as talented young musicians Norman and Bobby compete to win the hearts of their adoring female fans - and more importantly, the gorgeous Laura. But when Laura shows that she's no slouch with the guitar, rock 'n' roll fame beckons...**

Sounds like the West End's answer to craptacular Good Vibrations. Is that a train-wreck I see hurtling down the Strand, headed straight for the Savoy?

This sounds rubbish in a mawkish way, when I read Mama's summary I just wanted to stick my fingers down my throat!

Just got back from seeing this in Sunderland tonight! Didn't think I would like it but turned out to be a very entertaining night!

The audience were loving it, everyone up dancing at the end and generally just having a really good time.

Very strong cast who complimented each other very well. If you have a spare slot on a visit to London I wouldn't overlook this one.

i know shows don't always translate well onto TV, but the performance they jsut gave on GMTV was totally uninspired, and the choreography was so unoriginal and lackluster it was almost embarrasing.

I Saw this show first in Bromley then again in Manchester and Finaly at The Savoy, The performance on GMTV didn't do it justice, Its one of those strange shows you think you will hate and end up getting really involved, Vocally it's extremely strong and Scott Bruton has done really well to transfer from Xfactor to on stage and gave a stunning performance. Ben Freeman has an excellent voice and Daisy Wood-Davies is very strong.
