|Fantastic production. Will young was amazing as the emcee. Really enjoyed cliff and Sally too :-) would go again!!! How anyone could be disappointed is beyond me.... - Sam||26 Sep 12|
|Was very disappointed with this version of one of my favourite shows. The director had Will Young acting like a Cirque du Soleil Clown - way too much cheesy comedy and not enough of the dark undercurrent of 1930's Berlin. This show was a pale imitation of the one with Wayne Sleep a few years ago. However, good costumes and choreography. - Anita Benson||25 Sep 12|
|It is an amazing production. I saw it 5 or so years ago in London and had to see it again. I wasn't sure Will Young would pull it off as Emcee but it was an incredible performance. His finest moment into complete madness was completely chilling...you could hear a pin drop... - theatregirl||23 Sep 12|

|I loved this show, and particularly Will Young as he is brilliant as Emcee. He steals the show, l knew he could sing, but his acting is just fabulous. The whole cast are good and l just loved Sian Phillips. l saw Cabaret in Nottingham and have now booked for London, as l have to see this again. - heth||21 Sep 12|
|We loved the songs and Will was surprisingly great, funny and sensitive to the part. It's a classic story and so much better than spending the evening watching rubbish like X Factor on TV. Parents should know that there is (brief) total nudity in this (including Will!) - lucyhubbard||20 Sep 12|
|Will Young is a star. This is the best music theatre I have seen in years; real energy, talent and 100% entertainment! - jimdixon||20 Sep 12|
|This is a wonderful show which I saw in Southampton. All the cast are good but Will Young gives the most animated performance of Emcee I have ever seen. I have booked to see it again at the Savoy and would encourage everyone to see it. It is entertaining, fun, and very moving. - Gill||19 Sep 12|
