Absolutely shocking. Terrible script, no depth. The 'sad' scenes were laughable, complete lack of any emotion.

The singing was good but that cannot carry a show alone.

By the end of the show I was struggling to contain my laughter.

Please do not waste your money. If the like the music, put on the CD instead.

what a show fantastic, "not a musical fan" but this was something special ! the hole cast were great but as you can imagine Beverly Knight was absolutely fantastic, her vocals were incredible, the hole theater were on there feet and we came away with a great feeling, could have sat and watched for another couple of hours.congrats to everyone involved.

Overall, the show is okay, but when you are looking forward to see the named lead lady, Beverley Knight, on a Saturday evening show on 29th March, it just was not satisfactory, when you paid £120 per ticket and to celebrate one' s birthday.

I would not pay such a premium if I knew it was not Beverley Knight.

We were not informed at all, just when the show was about to start, the lady next to informed me. To put it bluntly, I was Not HAPPY AT ALL!!

An ok performance. As mentioned in early reviews disappointed that Beverley Knight not performing however standin had amazing voice. The set was v good and had obviously been extremely well planned. The acting, however, was pretty dire,almost like watching puppets!

Good for the music if a Witney ran, but don't expect amazing acting to match!!

I was absolutely gutted that bev knight was not in the show as being being a life long fan fot 15 years as she was ill.Which I know can't be helped but my friend came a month ago and she was ill then. Well enough me moaning the other girl that played Rachel waa amazing and did herself proud..I had an amazing time we'll worth going see .

Saw the show Fri evening and thought it was amazing! I've seen many musicals but this one certainly ticked all the boxes for me. Captivating, funny and outstanding singing by both Beverly Knight & Carole Stennett, also not forgetting little Fletcher who was such a star!. Beverly Knight gave 110% and put her heart and soul into the performance, I was left with goosebumps after many of the songs, a thoroughly enjoyable evening!

Don't be put off by negative reviews. This afternoons matinee was amazing, Joelle Moses gave a brilliant performance as Rachel and was supported by a great cast .An unforgettable experience not to be missed. The audience reaction said it all .
