sharp-witted Sohm Kapila... killer timing & sense of the absurd. The Stage ★★★★

gloriously arch performances from Adam Samuel-Bal moustache twirling Conman & Deven Modha curiously alluring, dapper giant. The Stage ★★★★

lovely to see an increasing rarity, a principal boy played by a girl: Sohm Kapila. The Guardian

Farrukh Dhondy's script is blissfully contemporary, ripe with local reference & plenty of seriously corny jokes. The Stage ★★★★

Aria Prasad, is pretty but practical, a dab hand at fixing things electronic. British Theatre Guide

Festive show isn't short of local appeal. The Guardian

an exciting and colourful fusion... Ralph Birtwell is good value, especially when paired with Shala Nyx' endearing sacred pantomime cow. The Stage ★★★★

Music is an essential part of this show and it couldn't be in better hands (Danyal Dhondy, Hassan Moyheddin & Ernest Ignatius). British Theatre Guide

Entertaining, lively and absolutely hilarious, Birtwell manages to pull you in from the very beginning. Everything Theatre ★★★★

Claudia Mayer designed the beautiful, impressive set and costumes. Everything Theatre ★★★★

Bollywood meets panto in a big-hearted genre fusion in Bollywood Jack at Tara Arts. Splicing the two colourful genres, it’s a glitteringly arch, dance-filled take on the more traditional Jack and the Beanstalk. A Younger Theatre
