A catchy musical which effortlessly combines important issues around ethnicity and gender with a light, funny, glamorous production.
We went with my parents (in their 70s) to this great musical in the heart of the West End. Lots of kids and grandparents in the audience and it didn't disappoint. There's a heavy dose of Bollywood glamour and an equally gripping storyline.
We all particularly loved the main character - played by Natalie Dew - and the relationship with her devoted father. The songs are all well placed and they don't do that annoying musical thing of singing every word. There are some lovely football scenes which would appeal to boys and girls and in the end...oh no, you need to see it for yourselves.
It is fairly long so maybe not one for small children but there are matinee performances which would be fine.
