All Or Nothing, the musical based on the story of the Small Faces arrives in the West End for a limited run until 11 March 2018. Here’s what critics had to say about it…

Broadway World★★★★ “There are no gimmicks or cheap tricks involved in this production. It has genuine authenticity behind every moment, and the show messes with most conventions of a stereotypical musical.”

The Reviews Hub: ★★★★ “While you may not be a Mod when you enter the theatre, you’ll definitely come out as one, singing along to ‘All or Nothing’ or ‘Itchycoo Park’. We are the Mods!”

British Theatre Guide: “The weakness of this production lies in a book that has a tendency towards being pedestrian and clichéd, seeking cheap laughs whenever the opportunity arises and never convincing viewers that they are watching history re-enacted on stage.”

West End Wilma: ★★ “If you’re a fan of the Small Faces, you’ll love the music, but as a two and a half hour piece of theatre, this just doesn’t really work.”

The Upcoming: ★★★★★ “At times, it feels more like a movie, and the audience’s reaction underlined how this musical will not only make a special connection with those revisiting the Mod times, but anyone encountering the era for the first time. All or Nothing is the coolest musical on earth, classy and comedic, and the music a revelation.”
