King's Theatre, Edinburgh

Allan and Grant return in a beast of a Pantomime! Read more …

The critical consensus

If you are deciding on a panto for a night out this season, Beauty and the Beast is one spellbinding, infectiously farcical production.

****(*)Erin Roche, Edinburgh Guide, 06/12/2018

If you’re a King’s regular, this year’s panto won’t disappoint. If you’ve never been, what are you waiting for?

****(*)Martin Gray, All Edinburgh Theatre, 06/12/2018

Stott and Stewart smash it yet again in this year’s panto offering from the King’s Theatre.

*****Tamarin Fountain, The Wee Review, 06/12/2018

[A] sparkling top notch production.

Liam Rudden, The Scotsman, 07/12/2018

It’s all delivered with lashings of good humour, plenty of music, a touch of romantic magic.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 07/12/2018

Once again, the heart of pantomime lives on in Edinburgh. For too long it has been relegated to a ‘cheap’ view of entertainment. When in reality it takes just as much effort, ingenuity and creativity as a major production. What Beauty and the Beast is, is something quite special.

****(*)Dominic Corr, The Reviews Hub, 10/12/2018

The King's latest panto is slick, glorious silliness.

****(*)Katie Hawthorne, The Skinny, 13/12/2018

A true masterclass in pantomime, this production will be talked about for years to come as the gold standard.

*****Fraser MacDonald, Broadway World, 16/12/2018

The star attraction of Allan Stewart and Grant Stott are still a delightful hoot.

****(*)Michael Cox, Across the Arts
