Reviews at Kings Cross Theatre
"an utterly huggable and thrillingly exuberant celebration... a brilliantly enjoyable night that lights up London theatre"
Lynne Gardner, The Guardian
“In Luke Sheppard’s production the show is fresh, vibrant and exuberant... traverse staging brings the audience thrillingly close to the narrow strip of high-octane action... an exhilarating riot of passion, steam and swagger.”
Sam Marlowe, The Times
"This exuberant musical is a spicy, gossipy portrait of a Hispanic community in New York’s Washington Heights. ..... Luke Sheppard’s production, which originated at Southwark Playhouse, has soul as well as plenty of sizzle."
Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard
...at Southwark Playhouse
‘This New York musical turns a South London fringe theatre into a riot of Latin soul, hip-hop, impassioned show tunes and vibrant dancing’
‘This show is a blast… easily as fun as any of its West End rivals’
‘This musical makes a spectacular London debut at Southwark Playhouse in Luke Sheppard’s soulful, slinky-hipped production.’
‘This fire-cracker of a downtown neighbourhood musical’
‘This sassy, sexy sensation of a show reaches such dizzying highs of theatrical ecstasy that it is surely destined to burst beyond south London’
