Oh no it isn’t!

It’s panto season. Oh yes it is. And Charlie and I were lucky enough last week to be invited to see ‘Aladdin: A Wish Come True’ at the O2.

Having been to a show I often like to take a peek at other people’s reviews. Neither Dominic Cavendish (‘ploddingly unfunny’) in the Torygraph nor Lyn Gardner in the Grauniad (‘cheerless’) thought much of it but – I suspect – they weren’t part of the core audience of kids eager for a bit of shouting, booing and cheering (Charlie, on leaving, said simply ‘this feels like I’m dreaming’) or parents in need of a bit of dazzling and wowing from a thoroughly professional, all-singing, all-dancing production. Yes, the seats are a tad uncomfortable and – much as we loved it – the show is about half an hour too long, but… it’s a panto with something for everyone.

Catch it while you can.
