Musical chronicle of PM's achievements
This slick production provides plenty of laughs and generous helpings of satire as it chronicles the achievements of the Blair premiership. A well-voiced and good-looking cast accompany the plethora of lyrically and musically impressive songs, providing a comic, if secondhand, squint behind the doors of number ten, with the deteriorating, camp, Blair/Brown relationship a particular highlight. Occasionally puerile and a little lengthy but otherwise this is entertaining stuff from a highly talented company. (David Laing)
