Pixie can sing, but there was not much singing; if you like wooden dialogue shouted at you by poor actors, then enjoy. Truly awful; the first time we've ever left a show at the interval, many others left with us.

Lovely venue. VERY disappointing show!!! A lot of people left half way through and I wish I did too! Pixie Lott has a lovely singing voice but I'm now a little deaf from all her shouting throughout the rest of the play. Overall, very boring.

Get the tram to Media City and walk across. It's a five minute walk, at most.
