EVER wondered what Cinderella would be like if it were set in London's Soho in a laundrette? Well, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe's reworking of the classic fairytale is heartfelt, moving and the best of British comedy.

The pair have created an upbeat score with witty rhymes and gorgeous melodies that will get you laughing.

Opening with a bang, the audience is transported to the Eastenders-esk Old Compton Street, where we are introduced to all the characters in the show. The high energy opening sets the tone for the show, with rainbow flags flying high around the stage.

The storyline of Cinderella is flipped on his head, where the lead becomes a young gay heartthrob called Robbie. Robbie has fallen in love with his very own Prince Charming, London's mayoral candidate James Prince. The course of love never did run smoothly, as James is engaged to be married to Marilyn.

The panto element of this musical shines through, with ugly stepsisters and a best friend to help Robbie on his way. However, sometimes the modern references to Love Island, TOWIE and Brexit interrupts the quality of the music that Stiles and Drewe have created.

By using a transverse stage, director Adam Myers' allows the audience to become part of the action and get to know the characters up close and personal. However, at some points, I was nervous that the cast may fall off the small runway as they whizzed up and down on office chairs, bumping into each other at moments as they exited the stage.

With this staging, there were a couple of moments when you struggled to hear the lead vocals over the ensemble and live band. Nevertheless, the story was told powerfully and boldly that is deserving of this kind of show.

There are a collection of strong lead performances from Harry Young as Robbie, who captures the audience with his emotion fuelled performance of "Glass Slippers". Robbie's duet with lover James Prince, "Gypsies of the Ether" was beautiful, with Teddy Clements' soft and gorgeous voice complementing Young's perfectly.

A stand out performance came from Coral Norton, playing Robbie's best friend Velcro. Norton's shows off her impressive range, and the tear-jerking "Let Him Go" was beautifully performed with Poppy Danielle as Marilyn.

However, like with all pantos, the favourites on stage have to be the Ugly Sister characters, in this case, Robbie's stepsisters Clodagh and Dana. Dolled up in leopard print, silver leggings and an obscene amount of neon, the vulgar and extremely grotesque Tracey Taylor-Jenkins and Georgina Smith bring the house down in their Act 1 number "I'm So Over Men". The pair work brilliantly together, bouncy off each other's energy and cheeky looks. With some stellar vocals, this pair is the show steeler.

This bright and lively production is an easy and enjoyable watch and will entertain anyone who sees it.
