Triumph for ‘Stepping Out’ with a Sweep of Rave Reviews!

Recently opening its doors at London’s Vaudeville Theatre, it has been a great week for Stepping Out, which celebrated a stream of excellent reviews and commendations from theatregoers and critics alike. Amanda Holden has been praised for her performance of perfectionist Vera, as has the overall casting of the play.


A play about a group of women, and one man, who meet for tap dancing classes at a local town hall, it centres on the relationships they form and the progressive dancing skills they develop. Heart-warming and comedic, the show is led by a fantastic cast.


What some of the critics are saying about Stepping Out

“Amanda Holden wittily struts her stuff in Stepping Out, at the Vaudeville” – Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

“Laughter on tap in feelgood musical with Amanda Holden” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“The presence of leggy golden girl Amanda Holden is another plus but the entire cast is well chosen. Britain’s got talent and then some” – Neil Norman, The Daily Express

“A charming, slow-burn comedy about a suburban amateur tap-dancing class” – Quentin Letts, Daily Mail

“It’s a small play with a big heart. And Maria Friedman – following in the footsteps of another Sondheim musical actress Julia McKenzie turned director – stages it with feeling and grace” – Mark Shenton, London

“Amanda looks every inch the leading lady…All rise for a performance worthy of the golden buzzer” – Benjy Potter, The Sun
