"Does the world really need another jukebox musical? When they're as entertaining as All Or Nothing, I can only say yes. Carol Harrison's wittily scripted story of 1960s The Small Faces, the group who were small in stature but huge in sound, together with the roster of their hits: Sha La La La Lee, Itchycoo Park, Lazy Sunday, makes for a smile-inducing night of mod nostalgia. The story is narrated by the older Steve Marriott, clutching a pint as he looks on at the antics of his younger self and his bandmates. Simply told, the story goes from Marriott's failed schooldays to his career as a child actor - his mother is mortified when he turns down the chance to work with Laurence Olivier - to his artistic and commercial successes with The Small Faces. The band have talent, but managers Don Arden and Andrew Loog Oldham brought them professional success but financial failure." The Sunday Express
"Early fans of the Small Faces may be getting on a bit, but nostalgia for the mods and for Steve Marriott's awesome voice might still prove a big enough draw for this crowd-funded account of the life of the Cockney singer who modelled himself on the great blues singers. There is nothing exceptional about Carol Harrison's script, which tells an all too familiar story of early fame, too many drugs, corrupt management, fallouts and early death. For all his talent, Marriott was vain, difficult and often his own worst enemy." The Sunday Times
