The three leading ladies in Dream girls are just fantastic and their vocals simply amazing. Amber Riley's version of 'and I'm telling you I'm not going' is pure class. Absolute honour to see this exceptional young lady. Her performance is simply outstanding, just a joy to have had such an amazing experience. I will never forget the impact and emotion.

Just got back from seeing this amazing show this evening. An incredible production , so well produced and brilliant performances from all the cast, especially Amber Riley but also outstanding performances from Jimmy Early,Deena and Lorell characters. The costumes , set changes and orchestra also deserve a mention. Fantastic evening , 5 stars. Go see it!

This was a really good show, Amber Riley has such an amazing voice and bought me to tears with her singing my hairs stood up on my arms and what was lovely her mum was sitting behind us .she must be very proud of her , it was a brilliant show going to see it again soon I hope

The others in the show were excellent to, very enjoyable, and the energy of the cast was unbeleivable

An amazing and talented cast who did an amazing job. Karen Mav as Effie was AMAZING. The best version I have seen of Effie yet.

The show reflects that of a pop opera. Miss Riley, without doubt is the star of the show and without her I feel the overall performance/production would suffer. The wardrobe was spectacular, individual performances very good but the selected songs are those that after the show one could not remember let alone echo. A show that gives value for money, but one that fails to hit the top spot of West End Theatre.

Absolutely brilliant show - amazing voices, dancing and costumes - a first class performance from a very polished company. Would love to see it again!

Great show enjoyed every minute.

There is one great song in this show which is performed well, but like with Motown, the story lacked depth and emotion and I never connected with the musical.

OK, show, but nothing special.

Amber Riley was absolutely spectacular! Treated my mum for Mother's Day and it was worth every penny, we loved it.
