Refreshing and Uplifting - A Great Show Done Right
31 August 2016 | by myrtz-52487See all my reviews

It's greatly disappointing to see that British critics are slamming the "Cradle to Grave" so quickly and so harshly with negative comments. Ease off, kids. This show is fantastic. Not everything needs to be a bloody, break-neck, speed-of-light drama edited to within an inch of your life.

This is good family fun without the pretense of pleasing all of the people all of the time. The characters are interesting, hilarious and realistic.

The music is the BEST and I can't say enough great things about the writing, the directing, the acting, and most especially the costuming and set work. If this show is ended before its due time, it will be like someone taking your giant box of chocolates away and kicking you in the, um, stomach. Blood would be shed for such insanity and injustice. No. This show must continue. Great work one and all. Keep on Truckin, and Keep on Keepin' on. (Just a few 70s phrases for you from the States.) :)
