The finest production of this musical that I have ever seen…Charlotte Wakefield is superb as Maria: funny, forthright and movingly vulnerable when the emotional stakes are high” Daily Telegraph

“Rachel Kavanaugh’s superbly staged, gloriously atmospheric revival…scales every peak…climb every mountain…to get a ticket” Mail on Sunday

This drop of golden sun will warm your heart” Daily Mail

“Glowing with warmth, performed with freshness and sung with clarity and simplicity. Resistance is futile, so go on – indulge yourself” Times

A sure-fire hit…Michael Xavier brings a lovely understated poignancy to the Captain’s transformation from rigid patriarch into affectionate father.” Evening Standard

“Kavanaugh looks as if she has simply put a few stitches between the string of marvellous melodies so that the evening is an almost seamless musical tapestry…gloriously staged.” Observer
