Touring – reviewed at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre, London

Welcome to the stage Mama G the fantastic Pantomime Dame one person show, all the glitz and glamour that encompasses the character are here in the fabulous storytelling show. One of the most entertaining and extremely funny performances I have seen in a while.

Mama G takes centre stage in a solo storytelling show to entertain audiences of all ages. That certainly lives up to the claim made on her flyers and adverts.

The main theme running through the entire 90-minute show is to be who you want to be and to encourage those around you to be themselves too. Anything that promotes self-belief and positivity has my full support.

The funny to date flossing and “twerking” dance competition with an endearing puppet show about Eunice the Horse/Unicorn are extremely funny.

Each of the five stories told during the show is based on the main characters learning to become who they want to be in life and each ends with a moral.

The tribute song by the fabulous singer and actor Paloma Faith sung by Mama G encourages the audience to join in with the song. Bringing the auditorium together.

An exceptionally well written and directed feel-good show that leaves you feeling uplifted.

When a 14-year-old who isn’t a theatre fan tells you they are really enjoying themselves, that’s incredibly high praise indeed.

Five Stars.
