"The staging handsomely fills the stage height of the often-neglected Comedy Theatre, setting the tone for a nostalgic, rose-tinted journey. Designer Dann Barber fills the soaring, weathered circus tent with plenty of authentic paraphernalia that bring atmosphere and a touch of circus magic to the story. Most impressive is a central circus caravan with a pop-out stage that is re-set to showcase various attractions curated by Barnum."

"The design is absolutely first rate. Dann Barber’s set and costumes are sumptuous and spectacular, drawing on the kooky, exaggerated aesthetic of Tim Burton, with a touch of Edward Gorey thrown in, notably in the song ‘Black and White’ – a stunning sequence that pushes the entire creative team to the limit of its talents."
