I would have given a higher score if it were available. My daughter and I absolutely loved the performance, despite Amber Riley's absence. I am so looking forward to seeing it again and again :)

I cannot wait :)

Went to see this yesterday afternoon. Was a bit disappointed that it wasn't Amber but it was Marisha Wallace playing effie but wow she was absolutely amazing!! The whole show was marvellous just could not fault it. Am currently booking to go again. Best show by far. Even purchased a programme which normally too mean to fork out for!!.

Having seen the film and the big shoes to fill, the cast on 04 January matinee performance absolutely filled them effortlessly. There just wasn't the time to give the applause justified due to the fluidity of the show. Utterly blown away with Marisha Wallace's version of "And I am telling you". Each and every cast member was absolutely fabulous. Some people complain about ticket prices for shows, all I can say "money well spent". A perfect birthday treat X thank you

I arranged for my extended family to see the matinee performance of Dreamgirls yesterday 29 December, we were at first extremely disappointed to find that Amber Riley was indisposed, especially as it was one of the reasons we booked the tickets (my daughters being fans of GLEE). However we all agreed that her stand in - Marisha (sorry think that was her name - saw a glimpse of it on a note on the bar) completely smashed the role. Unfortunately we could not find her name on the programme we bought which was a shame - it would have been nice to have known more about her and her background as in our opinion, once she warmed up, she completely carried the show. Would you kindly pass on our comments to her and if possible it would be great to hear a little bit more about her. Thanking you, Fiona et al

Most amazing performance I have ever seen, not a dry eye throughout the whole show, truly fantastic. Would happily go again and again, Amber Riley was absolutely incredible and hit all the notes perfectly!! Would highly recommend
