    Captain Corelli’s Mandolin is a poignant, touching, story. I was curious to see the story adapted for a Stage performance. More fine-tuning needs to be done for a more vivid depiction. The story comes across, however. I would see this again after improvements are implemented. An excellent first effort from all concerned. Please enhance the play with more of a Greek flavour. I enjoyed this performance very much.

    Extremely well done

    The beginning of the first half was very difficult to follow but improved as it went along. The second half was really good. A dramatic show which needs better clarity if this is done it deserves to continue..

  • Review Avatar Jul 7, 2019

    Very well produced. A little bit "out there" for me - a woman playing a nazi officer, another woman playing a goat and an Italian soldier... However, the play is a pretty good adatation of a complex book, so well done.

    a mix view. Some of the "fun" bit are not necessary suitable... the actors of Capitan and who died for him are too similar in looking.... perhaps cause some confusion?

    i quite enjoyed the play but there was often too much going on, I would have preferred a simpler, subtler production with a greater emphasis on quality acting , music and choreography.

  • Review Avatar Jul 9, 2019

    I enjoyed the play very much! The production was wonderful, very tight and well coordinated, with a moving story and amazing singing even though it's not a musical.

    The only good thing in the first half was the goat. She was brilliant. The second half was good.

  • Review Avatar Jul 10, 2019

    Excellent production! Really enjoyed the show. It's a long time since I read the book so it was great to be reminded of the story in this clever and stirring performance.

    Es arte. La capacidad de interpretar varias escenas a la vez dejando claro cuál resalta y hacerte sentir dentro gracias a la calidad del sonido e imagen es arte.

  • Review Avatar Jul 13, 2019

    An imaginative dramatisation of the famous novel, with some very fine acting, singing and choreography.

  • Review Avatar Jul 14, 2019

  • Review Avatar Jul 17, 2019

    Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Great acting. Highly recommended.

  • Review Avatar Jul 17, 2019

    Thought the story was too complex for a stage version. Too much time spent on previous boyfriend and not enough to develop the relationship between the two main parts. Music was excellent and special effects good too.

  • Review Avatar Jul 17, 2019

    The booking process was simple and the show was great. We booked early bird tickets and were lucky enough to be moved forward to better seats, which was a nice touch to make the evening even more special.
