  A dark musical 

Censors famously toned down several homosexual elements of the story in both the novel and film. Speaking to the Telegraph recently, Tim Rice said: "There’s a lot of tension in the book of the relationships between the men which are at times gay, at other times simmering, and it’s something we definitely won’t keep out of the show.

Presse : "This isn’t a major musical to rival South Pacific but in a West End awash with shows for kids and kidults it dares to speak to our inner grown-up about frustrated yearning, fleeting romance and pluck. " Dominic Cavendish for Daily Telegraph

"...The show, however, is executed with considerable skill. Brayson's score encompasses a variety of styles including military chorales, Hawaiian hula routines and bluesy solos. " Michael Billington for The Guardian

" This one is a hoot, not necessarily by intention. It contains soupy tunes, glistening biceps, reality star Darius Campbell and his jawline, and generally more corn than even the leading breakfast cereal brands. " Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

"For all the show's many defects, though, you come away impressed by its seriousness of purpose." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"It’s vigorous and generally slick, but at times feels trite." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"It’s a commendably ambitious work that makes a refreshing addition to the West End menu." Simon Edge for The Daily Express
