'Almost the first thing you see as the curtain rises are dancing feet; these are the girls and boys who Julian describes as "mere specks of dust" but who together and in unison make something beautiful....played straight, without a hint of irony, Kerryson's production ensures we can all believe in fairytales. On a good night, you could probably see the sparks those tap shoes make from space.' The Guardian
