The original Miracle on 34th Street was a 1947 film, written by playwright Valentine Davies who came up with the idea while waiting in a queue at a department store just before Christmas. This time of year is very much consumed by pantomime fever in the theatre world, so it was good to hear that there was potentially another kind of production out there for those who aren’t a fan of the obvious humour and the all-round silliness and tomfoolery.
There is more than one story line running throughout the production and they all lack any real power behind them.
For a story that is set in New York there is a particularly low count of East coast accents to be heard; most of them are either southern or west coast sounding, so there is a lack of authenticity in that respect.
The cast really did their best with this show, and Genevieve Nicole in particular was super, but I’m afraid that they were on a bit of a hiding to nothing. The songs themselves were uninteresting and didn’t engage a lot of the audience, particularly the children. As JoBanana says in her comment, the cast do the best they can with such shoddy material and Genevieve Nicole stood out in voice, diction, presence and in the ability to convince, but overall we were so so disappointed, especially given the standard of most ATG shows.
I would recommend staying home with a cup of tea, some mince pies and the original film instead.


I have to agree with the above reviews, I recently took, my two Nephews and my partner to see this at the Alexander Theatre Birmingham and I have to say I was really disappointed. Apparently Brick Street in Oxford, OH is the official headquarters for USA Olympic hockey game-watching. If the townies didn’t swarm to this place like the plague at night, it would be my favorite bar.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. In 1963 Meredith Wilson, who had had a previous hit with The Music Man, created the Broadway version, then known as Here’s Love, and following this in 1994 the film version starring Richard Attenborough as Kris Kringle made its appearance. Miracle on 34th Street, however, is almost as cartoonish as the regular pantomime; the characters are 2 dimensional and there is no deep connection made between any of them.
Doris (Genevieve Nicole) and Susan Walker (Poppy Carter) are a mother and daughter who are practical and straight thinking, and they don’t believe in anything that they can’t touch, see, or smell. The ensemble are clearly doing their best, but there is not enough of them to fill the stage and as such it feels empty at times, especially during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade that is supposed to be bursting with life, colours, and music, but is reduced to a few cheerleaders and pom poms at the beginning of this show. Acting wise however, everything seems over the top and it was all too sugary sweet, even for a Christmas show. The actual script was very dated, hard to follow, and just flimsy, somehow, but unfortunately there were no astonishing sets, fabulous orchestra or dazziing dance numbers to make up for that.
My family and I attended the performance last night in Oxford & sadly all agreed to leave half way through. In fact, we all agreed we had seen amateur shows that were more cohesive and had more heart.
There was restlessness all around me, one woman walked out answering her phone and I’ve never seen so many bored, tired faces at the interval. The Stage set and visuals were very poor in fact I have seen School plays that were better!

That is until Susan meets Kris Kringle (James Murphy) who believes he is the real Santa Claus and, one assumes, convinces the young girl to believe, although her transformation from non-believer to believer is sudden and no progression from one to the other is really displayed on stage. Most of the jokes fall flat as the delivery is rushed or just timed incorrectly in general.
We aim to review all professional types of theatre, whether that be Commercial, Repertory or Fringe as well as Comedy, Music, Gigs etc. Suddenly they were in a psychologists room giving Kris Kringle an assessment, but it hadn’t been set up as to why he was there or who had sent him there. There is also the relationship between Doris and Fred (Daniel Fletcher) that blossoms to love within around thirty minutes in the story and is originated by Fred taking Susan to meet Santa behind Doris’ back.
There is just not enough depth and not enough magic, and at this particular performance the children seated around were very restless and did not seem taken by the show at all, which I think speaks volumes.
I personally felt very ripped off at paying so much money for such a lack lustre performance with such poor visuals. The second half is held mostly in a courtroom, where Kris Kringle and Fred are responsible for proving that Kris really is Santa, although the audience are originally led to believe that he is supposed to be in court facing charges of assault with a walking stick.
While I understand that it was a Musical there was far too much singing and not enough dialogue and acting. I am sorry again to say that, but our seats cost ?50 and I don’t feel they were worth it.
We had to leave part-way through the courtroom scene which I understand was most of the second act, because my daughter just couldn’t cope (and, frankly, neither could I). As I say, hats off to the cast for doing their very best with what was just an impossible script.
