Absolutely hilarious!
29 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Acorn Antiques The Musical is one of the most phenomenal and brilliantly entertaining things I've ever seen! It is outrageously funny with joke after joke and punchline after punchline thrown at you throughout the entire performance. It certainly keeps you on your toes and listening hard! It must have taken tremendous time and effort to pull everything together and the music and choreography are simply stunning. The storyline is very original but just as splendid as any other if not more so! I loved every minute of the performance and would see it a million times if I could. Each character has a spark of individuality that is amazing without the rest of the show backing it up. I found the whole thing thoroughly enjoyable and encourage others to see it!
