Star Ratings

We get asked how we judge our star ratings for each show. Below is a rough guide to what each rating means, but as we use a sliding scale, shows can be given half stars too. Three stars can sometimes seem like a bad review, but it’s far from the case. 

Five Stars – The perfect show, value for money and very much worth your time

Four Stars – Not quite perfect, but we’d still recommend it to everyone!

Three Stars – Better than average, and a good night out at the theatre, but perhaps lacking that something special

Two Stars – Below average, in need of work. We’d think twice before suggesting anyone see it.

One Star – Not entirely awful, but not worth your time.

Zero Stars – Awful, do not see.
