Leicester Curve: 7th March - 4th April 2015

 

4 stars in The Times, The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph

 

"A home-grown hit for the Curve...a show constantly paying neat homage to previous British musicals and the traditions of the TV sitcom, and yet always staying distinctive and true to its source material... A quaint, unassuming little charmer." - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

 

"This all-singing, all-dancing Mole comes up trumps; in fact, it’s so good it could burrow its way to the West End...the evening does that rare thing: it makes you laugh, tugs at your heart-strings and honours the spirit of the original while being playfully inventive...this fresh, funny, stirring spin on a Thatcher-era classic may be around for a long time to come."  - Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

 

"It’s no small achievement to make this first musical version such a lively, evocative pleasure... amusing and affecting enough to leave you glowing...a thoroughly charming evening: faithful to the book but with a tenderness of its own."  - Dominic Maxwell, The Times
