What I liked

The cast, the new interpretations of songs you know by heart, the touching story of never giving up and the importance of friends.. there is much to like here!

What I didn't like

There was nothing to dislike.

My overall impression

Watching this show was an absolute joy. Fun, energetic and heartbreaking, the music of The Clash provides surprising effective insight into a series of adventure had by a group of mates facing the onset of adulthood and the conclusion that dreams and money don’t always come hand in hand… until they do. The cast wins the audience over from the opening moments of the show, even as they fumble through awkward life changes. The audience can only hope each character finds their way without wrecking their lives in the process. Along the way, the treat is seeing familiar Clash tunes charging those journeys with energy and fun. This was a blast!
