“If you want a mix of gore and laughs, this is the show to see. It’s a very British tale of dark forces and dark deeds intertwined with music hall and a few good giggles. The musical numbers were performed beautifully, the harmonies were all spot on, and the gore was also really realistic. Without giving too much away, decapitating somebody live on stage is a pretty impressive feat.

All of the acting was brilliant, and the band were excellent at keeping the whole atmosphere of the piece constant throughout, some members even jumping up to be extra characters. The variety of accents was wide but accurate, and Claire Bryan’s portrayal of Desiree was beautifully executed and had me hanging off her every word.

It’s a great show to see for an evening of entertainment, but make sure you’re prepared to really go with it, because it takes you to places you will probably have never been before, and so is not completely to everyone’s taste. But, if you enjoy the taste of blood, it’s more than right for you.”
