Seriously underbaked!! The story had potential but it was sadly never achieved. There was hardly a single laugh in the first act and I felt sorry for the actors trying to sqeeze some humour into some seriously unfunny material. Act 2 was a slight improvement and an oaccasional titter was heard from the audience. Mike Atwell as the husband (who was not actually cooked) was like some cheesy pantomime villain and kept fluffing his lines. Dire Daisy Donovan should go back to presenting on channel 4 as she don't belong on a west end stage, except maybe to sweep it. Alsion Steadman just about redeemed the whole thing along with the colourful and clever set and the regular injections of Elvis songs. This show should never have reached the west end. I think the critics were generous when they said it was not a three course meal but only a tasty snack - it was more like a left over you'd give to the dog!! I was vey disappointed. - USER: Whatsonstage.com

It is easy to dismiss the show as a feminist rant, however, the beauty of it is in the specific analysis of a bizarre threesome and a chilling murder.The tragedy is in excellent counterpoint to the panto style comedy. Alison Steadman, Michael Atwell and Daisy Donovan are all funny funny and their characters funny peculiar. - USER: Whatsonstage.com

Really delightful. Camp, kitsch, tongue-in-cheek, wonderful music, fabulous performances, this show sent me out into the night with a beam on my face. - USER: Whatsonstage.com
