REVIEW: Footloose at the Peacock Theatre in London

14 September 2017

Footloose cuts loose at London's Peacock Theatre

Shows like Footloose have almost invented a sub-genre in theatre; insofar it’s much more than a juke box musical but not quite a play. Therein lies the key – welcome to the movie musical. It may not be to everyone’s taste but its entertainment in the most exhilarating form. - **** Brian Penn, Everything Theatre

It’s always a pleasure to sit amidst an appreciative audience enjoying an uncomplicated fun night of theatre and that was certainly my experience at the Peacock this week where a touring production of the beloved movie musical ended its travels with a London run. - Phil Willmott, London Box Office

Footloose The Musical is the very definition of ‘feel-good’.  Racky Plews has, yet again, directed a fantastic piece of musical theatre which permeates deep in to the audiences’ hearts, and along with a first class performance from Joshua Dowen, makes this guaranteed to help you cut loose, get on your feet and relish every moment. - **** Greg Stewart, Theatre Weekly
