The Guardian –

“Chris Cuming’s choreography hit standards far in advance of what seems reasonable to expect from the fringe”

The Stage –

“The story is earthed with real sincerity and powered by a strong ensemble who bring a robustly masculine grace to it”

The Attitude 

“It’s a musical that delivers on good comedy, great songs and fabulous choreography”

Broadway World UK –

“Its vigour comes largely from Chris Cuming’s choreography, with the standout tap number “Click” that makes you want to tap along in your seat. There are lots of recognisable period-specific dance moves in there, such as Lindy hop, but the energy that comes from a male ensemble gives it an original touch.”

Whats On Stage –

“is an ingenious piece of musical storytelling, wonderfully choreographed by Chris Cuming.”

West End Wilma –

“The show is brilliantly directed by Chris Cuming and features some of the best choreography I have seen in a long time and tap numbers to rival 42nd Street.”

Musical Theatre Review –

“Chris Cuming’s choreography uses this to great effect, no less so than in a beautiful tap dancing pas de deux”

British Theatre .com –

“sharp, exuberant choreography by Chris Cuming”

The American 

“Chris Cuming’s winning choreography, including a nifty tap duo, never settles for a lazy parody and, pleasingly, this is an irony free zone.”
