On WAG! The Musical's website, it states "Promises to be one of the most extraordinary theatrical events of the year". Well, Wag the Musical is actually one of, if not the worst, theatrical event of the year. Expecting a story of the Wives and Girlfriends (WAGS) of footballers, with their fake boobs, lavish spending, and bling jewelry, what we get instead is a musical with very bad music, a story with a very bad script, and a show so bad that it does not even deserve to be staged. It is questionable why the writers (Belvedere Pashum - with music and lyrics by Grant Martin, Thomas Giron-Towers and Tony Bayless) set a show about WAGS at a cosmetics counter in a department store. There are so many different ways they could've written a show about WAGS to make it funny and entertaining, but as it is now, it is a laughable production at best. Newspaper critics have declared this the worst show of the year. Are they correct? Definitely YES.

This is, indeed, an abysmal show that barely merits the rating it has been accorded by Time Out. However, much as I disliked it, I must point out a factual error in the review: surprisingly, WAG! did not score 'single star reviews across the board'. Some nationals were rather more generous and the blogosphere is full of significantly higher ratings - well, one or two. But, believe me, no amount of alcohol can dull the pain of this dreadful show whose awfulness is still giving me sleepless nights days after its opening.

Ugh. I am so glad I didn't actually pay to see this monstrosity. Sorry to all involved but this is an embarrassment to London theatre. Dull doesn't even come close to describing it.

Philip Eaton

Awful! Poor acting, poor story, poor set. Poor Tim Flavin. Bet he regrets ever agreeing to do this!
