    I tend to agree with the critics who said this show was too long and too didactic for a family show. Good, if samey dancing - Tommy Frantzen excellent - and a great band. But too much PC stuff about mental health interfered with the audience's wanting to have a good time. Leave all that out, cut the show back to its original 2 hour length, crank up the volume and party!

    My teenage daughter enjoyed the preview performance hugely from start to end, and would go again. Younger children in front of us were barely all but dancing in the aisles. They did not find it too long and left buzzing.
    This is not my usual choice of show, and I would not have heard of it without the RoH. I went with no idea what to expect.It was one of the most entertaining and energetic performances I saw in 2016.
