The press reviews have been hugely positive and while it is Bobby Davro who is, unsurprisingly, singled out most often as 'stealing the show', Lee is variously described as charming, dashing and lovable and universally acclaimed for his excellent vocals, though I'm glad to see his dancing also gets honourable mention! All of the above, I say!
See what the press have to say below (click thumbnails to read) - the Essex Live piece was a comparison of four of Essex's biggest pantomimes but for the purposes of this website, I've extracted only the section relevant to Southend which narrowly beat the others to be named as their 'pick of the crop'. You can read the full piece here.
Jack & the Beanstalk runs at the Cliffs until 7 January 2018, more info here. Best ticket availability is for the final week. Finally, thanks to Lee for tweeting the curtain call picture below, taken by I know not who on the first day of the run.
