Excerpts and links to full reviews after the jump:

“Stratford East has always maintained its gorgeous traditional scarlet and gilt, along with its onstage iconoclasm. The Infidel – the Musical is its best tribute for ages to Joan Littlewood’s theatre. It’s bawdy. The risks it takes are real. It has, without being po-faced, a healing purpose. Actually, there has not been anything since Jerry Springer – the Opera that targeted religious zealots so exuberantly…. Baddiel’s punchy lyrics lay acerbically and joyfully into Jewish and Muslim fundamentalism…..Melanie Marshall uses the lovely blast of her voice to hymn the sexiness of the burqa. Kev Orkian, … is spot-on as the hero with the identity crisis. Light and wry, his comic gift is as strong as his considerable voice.” 

- Susannah Clapp, The Observer

“David Baddiel’s musical has a heart of gold…a feel-good cracker. You’d have to be cynical… to leave with anything else than a big grin … important as well as just daftly enjoyable”

Holly Williams, The Independent

“Baddiel and co-director Kerry Michael shove number plates onto sofas and make them taxis, and characters roll their eyes when someone starts singing. Such colourful meta-theatrics take the edge off the show’s creeping sentimentality and keep it bouncing along… Kev Orkian is winningly hapless as Mahmud… The script gleefully sends up ridiculous religious clichés.”

Tom Wicker, Timeout London

Stage musicals of films can seem like cynical beasts, but David Baddiel and Erran Baron Cohen’s version of their own 2010 cult film The Infidel bucks the trend: it got off the ground thanks to Kickstarter crowd-funding, and is a feel-good cracker. You’d have to be cynical yourself to leave with anything less than a big grin.”

The Infidel, Theatre Royal Stratford East: David Baddiel’s musical has a heart of gold

“The bravest of this week’s three musicals… Baddiel’s lyrics … are jauntily good-humoured and perfectly wedded to Erran Baron Cohen’s eclectic score. Kev Orkian leads an excellent cast in a production dynamically choreographed by Liam Steel….It is particularly heart-warming to see such a warm and witty celebration of religious tolerance in this most multicultural of London theatres.”

Michael Arditti, The Sunday Express

“One would have to have a humour bypass not to laugh.”
