“A miniature Christmas miracle”

THE TIMES - Sam Marlowe

 

“Electrifying performances light up a glittering New York Christmas story in this warm-hearted, tuneful two-hander...Tim Jackson’s sprightly direction, culminating in a great sight gag in a Chinese restaurant, keeps the relationship with romcom sentimentality always more curt than Curtis.”

THE GUARDIAN - Mark Lawson

"It is rare to see a brand-new piece whereby the story, music and staging work completely harmoniously...Tim Jackson's direction is fast-moving and detailed when it comes to the characters, their backstories and journeys during the two-hour show...'Tis the season for a knockout new musical - joyful and refreshing"

BROADWAY WORLD​ - Jenny Ell

“Jim Barne and Kit Buchan have written a classic Christmas romance enhanced by a confident production...Tim Jackson’s direction is sure-footed “

THE OBSERVER - Clare Brennan

“warmth, wit and a sense of wonder...Tim Jackson's well-judged production”

WHATSONSTAGE - Michael Davies

“Director Tim Jackson gives each character plenty of time to dwell on their feelings, with slow, tender moments emerging organically from the comedic rush. Between silly skits about maxing out borrowed credit cards and wrecking wedding cakes, there’s time for some reflective, heartfelt sequences addressing loneliness, hope and family obligation.”
THE STAGE - Dave Fargnoli

"This production arrives fully formed and confident in its very strong story and musical arcs. Under Jackson’s masterly direction, by the end of the show the audience is totally invested in this couple’s tale."
