Rated 5 out of 5 by from GO SEE THIS My daughter and I saw this as part of our overnight stay in London. It was absolutely STUNNING - seriously! Admittedly I was dubious as puppets are not my thing but ‘puppets’ is a bit of an understatement about this show. The costumes are amazing and the cast are simply brilliant ❤️. The Lyceum Theatre itself is fabulous building that really does set the tone for an evening of prime entertainment. Look at the official trailer on YouTube - go and watch this show ❤️
