Been to see coronation street musical tonight in Manchester absolutely rubbish! Technical problems throughout, late starting and extended interval. Very random no really story really boring choreography and terrible wigs. I am an avid corrie fan and me and my family were really disappointed. There was little interaction from the audience throughout and whilst leaving we heard numerous comments of how terrible folks thought it had been. Wish I had stayed at home and watched BGT.

Julie i couldn't agree less. As opening nights go it was excellent in our opinion.
There WERE some low points, but Paul O'Grady was at his best as host, and almost all of the songs were relevant to any die-hard Corrie fan. Some of the choreography was perhaps a little OTT but that is surely to be expected in a stage musical.

If you love Corrie I would recommend Street of Dreams as a great night out :)
