Yesterday afternoon I had the most enjoyable visit to the theatre to see the most charming Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. What a show, one in a million and the car, wow it was very difficult to see how it actually flied on the stage. They pulled this one off magnificently, very impressed with the cars techniques. The car itself had to be the star of the show.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one of those wonderful family musical films that I grew up with and remember fondly from my childhood! It is such a lovely story and film that a while ago I bought the DVD for my daughters and they absolutely fell in love with it too! When I discovered that the touring production was coming to our local theatre - The New Victoria, Woking - I really wanted us to go and see it. However, looking into prices for reasonable seats I discovered that for the four of us to go, it would cost in excess of £120 which for only a couple of hours entertainment is very expensive. Therefore, I decided not to bother. That was until last week, when an email came . Read the complete review

I've seen this show twice now, both times with the same original cast (Michael Ball, Emma Williams, Brian Blessed etc) but the second time with a different child-catcher (Paul O'Grady). The first time, I really didn't expect much at all. I was in London for another reason, and it was an excuse to see some amazing actors all together on stage. Well, I was blown away completely. When the overture struck up, and the audience started to clap insanely, I momentarily got worried - I don't like that kind of thing at all. I almost walked out of "Fame" when people started doing this at the end. But by the end of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", I was Read the complete review

There can be few people who at some time or another have not come across Ian Fleming’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Whether as a book or the film (which was adapted from the book by Roald Dahl, produced by Broccoli with songs by the Sherman brothers) Chitty has been providing entertainment since the 1960s. Now, with the skilful hand of Sams who provided the stage adaptation and Noble’s direction, Chitty has been brought, in full flying glory, to the London Palladium. I love musical theatre and, am a bit of a kid at heart and so it was with utter joy that booked tickets to go and see Chitty; and where better to see such a masterpiece than the London ...

I agree with nearly everything that Chritchyboy says in his review, but I just had to comment because Chitty deserves more than 2 stars. Yes the dialogue is poor at times, yes the 2 spies have much more comedy potential etc etc etc. But the effects, sets and the car itself are absolutely outstanding. I think it may have improved since the previews (I saw the 22 June performance) - Me Ol' Bamboo for example went down an absolute treat and the choreography looked great to my untutored eye. However the Bernard Matthews reference is still there. I am not a Michael Ball fan by any means, but I think he does a great job here and Anton Rodgers is ... Read the complete review
