1 OH MY GOD its the best  Review by: AJ from Colchester, Oct 2, 2007
went and took my best mate last year to see Daddy cool and i am shocked at the people who found it boring, lets face it maybe your life is boring aswell. This is one of the best Musicals I have seen along with Mamma Mia and We will rock you. I so desperately want the soundtrack from the musical, excellent, i had goose bumps at the end and was very sad that it wasnt longer. Loved it, so for all those people who found it boring and not cool,... read more

2 Big fun!  Review by: h_bosch, Sep 7, 2007
Great fun for me!
I saw the show by chance during my short trip to London 2006 and was more then satified. Just one observation: after the last song people stood up and sang one or two extra songs with the cast.
It's not for you if you expect a complicated plot. But buy the ticket if you like dynamic music and you liked old Boney M stuff.

4 Very Cool  Review by: D.O., Mar 27, 2007
Some spectators wrongly expect from a plot of improbable depth. They do not understand, that it is a hit - musical. But it is made very well. We enjoyed this show.
Sony BMG Germany publishes CD " Daddy Cool - The Musical " in the middle of April !

6 Mary and John Thompson  Review by: , Feb 5, 2007
My husband and I have been reading these reviews and with an open mind we thought we would see for ourselves and judge this musical on our experience. We love theatre and we have probably been to most of the shows which have graced the West End. We were I am sorry to say very disappointed with the standard of the show. This is the West End and at this level for that price you expect a show to deliver the highest standard. The music was very ... read more

8 Wish I'd brought my pillow  Review by: , Feb 1, 2007
If you're looking to take a nap then this is the play to be (yawn) What a joke. My boyfriend and I were extremely excited to see the show and then we did....!! The scandal which has been linked to this mess could not have done it any justice. To watch the adulterer and his misses I was not best pleased. It made a mockery of the whole affair. The dancing was fairly good and the Bonnie M songs were nostalgic. The street scenes common and had ... read more

9 Two thumbs down!!!!!!!!!!!!  Review by: , Jan 31, 2007
I saw the play on Sat 27 January after we had prebooked tickets. What a waste of money. The acting was amature and the leads were rubbish. The songs were the only great thing about this play (Bonnie M that is) not the nonsensical street rubbish. There were people on stage who also had stage presence but to open their mouth and sing was a letdown. In my opion the total cast on stage that night were in desperate need of further acting lessons ... read more

10 Excellent show, FANTASTIC singing, extremely entertaing!!!  Review by: G.M., Dec 31, 2006
I personally didnt know any Boney M songs before i went, i recognised a few tunes, but wouldn't have been able to say who it was by or what it was called...

This show was fantastic, the acting was really good and the dancing was amazing. The storyline was very entertaining and the only boring part was the interval.

I would recommend this to anyone, Boney M fan or not. The show is a must see!

11 you MUST be related to a cast member !!!!........  Review by: ms christmas, Dec 27, 2006
either the people who enjoyed this show MUST be related to cast members or dont get out much ?
not saying it wasnt good if it was put on by our local brownie pack but a west end show and west end prices please !!!!

13 Absolutely magnificent show!  Review by: norissa@ya.ru, Dec 4, 2006

14 Daddy (un)Cool  Review by: amsterdam, Dec 4, 2006
Daddy Cool is totally and complety not cool ! I saw this show last week and it was definately THE poorest theatre-experience I've had in my life. In this I am including various amateur and children productions that I saw in villages in the middle of nowhere in the dutch countryside ! Really...this is London, West End, the heart of theatreland in Europe...how can somebody have the nerve to put this show on such a stage (or on any other for that ... read more

15 The Magic of Boney M around us and yet it is LIVE.  Review by: Gajan Perampalam, Nov 20, 2006
On Friday, which was our wedding anniversary day, my wife surprised me with the tickets for the musical. The tickets were for the 7.30 show last night and when we entered the theater at about 7.10 it was more than two thrids full. By the time the show started it was fully packed.

Frankly, though I am an ardant fan of Boney M and other Frank Farian productions, I had not expected much as I wondered how the Boney M and other Frank Farian ... read more
