the show was brilliant, great dancers, funny and great atmosphere all around. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what they are talking about. people complain abut the stage but i do not know why because they were great and the Edinburgh playhouse stage was a fine stage to do the show on. keep up the good work all of the cast. - Stuart

I didn't see it in Edinburgh I just stumbled across this. The above comment annoyed me. People who go to a touring version on this Starlight Express expecting the stage to be like it was in the west end, obviously have no common sense. The West End show was staged in the Victoria Appolo theatre, they litterally had to rip the inside of the theatre apart to build the set. The west end set is simply not practical and also impossible to tour. So don't blame the producers of the show for this, they do the best they can with what they have, either that or the show totally dissapears from the UK. Stupid health & safety laws will not allow the show to be given a permanent home in the UK and be staged the way it used to be. If you want to go and see it in it's former glory, then go to Bochum in Germany, but you had better learn German first. - Steve

Have been looking forward to seeing SE for so long now and when I managed to get tickets I was over the moon. Looking forward to a unique stage, cast rolling past my ears, over the top of us - as I had read and heard about for years. I walked in to the playhouse and there was no massive stage, we were just handed some 3D glasses. As good as the show was, the cast fantastic, music amazing, the stage let the show down, I didnt pay for a cinema ticket. - Owain
