REVIEWS ROUND-UP

“Even if this tune-and-toe version of Ken Ludwig's 1986 play doesn't avoid all the pitfalls, it gets by on period charm and one dazzling knockout number.”

“It’s all passably entertaining – if you’re prepared to accept this light-hearted and sometimes laboured mix of high art, high jinks and hokum for the fluff and nonsense it is."

“Sure, the whole shebang's a bit of a throwback, but it's fun and finished to a very high standard."

"There's a disjunction here between retrogressive comedy and modern musical sentiment, and the result is blandness. I did like the tap-dancing bellboys, but that's faint praise, I know."

1 thought on “Lend Me A Tenor at the Gielgud Theatre – Round-up of Reviews”

  1. What a shame Lend me a Tenor has closed – it was fabulous, Matthew Kelly’s expressions were wonderful and the singing was outstanding, especially Sophie-Louise Dann’s “operatic scene” in the bedroom, but everyone made the show what it is – it really made me laugh, it was superb and I’m sorry it has ended I see one of the critics comments refers to a throwback finished to a high standard, give me throwbacks anytine!
