After Beverly Knight promoted the fact she was going into the show I didnt hesitat to book, I booked for New Years Eve afternoon performance to make NYE a special day.

Unfortunatly there was no Beverly Knight it was the understudy, could not have been more dissapointed, im sure the organisers would have known this in advance and should have communicated this to ticket buyers - The understudy was awful, sang with little Oooomph , the lady who played the sister was far better

Really disapointing, I would never have paid so much money knowing Beverly Knight was not going to appear.

Show was great. Beverley Knight was awesome. Yes, Farmer could have been stronger but it was a great show and certainly worth seeing.

The second half was an improvement on the fist half. The singing was not up to the mark and was a little off key at times. The duet was poor. Despite this I still enjoyed the overall performance due to the fact it was nostalgic. It must have been an off night - Beverley improved a lot in the second half. The stage and lighting was very impressive and lured the audience into the appropriate reaction. The "baddie" was great.

Have to agree with a previous review. The acting is absolutely dreadful from both main characters. Knight, I suppose has an excuse, as she was clearly chosen for her singing. This should not override all other factors. I know it is a musical but it's still a drama upon the stage and at times it was excruciating to watch.

Despite that, there was a standing ovation the night I went. Are we so dumbed down now that we no longer expect people on the stage to be able to act? I was very disappointed.

Singing fabulous. Set brilliant, very clever. Acting awful. Costumes poor. The man playing the bodyguard was wooden. Quite disappointed. Paid £93 for dress circle seats for what was a singing show, not a theatrical musical.

Beverly Knight, I am a grown man of 51, her singing is so powerful that i wept openly, this show is so well acted and put together with excellent direction, please see this show quickly as possible and see for yourself, do not miss out.

It was the best show I have seen in a long time. Was sad to hear that Beverly Knight was not appearing but soon forgot that. Her replacement was superb as was 'Nicky'. Can't get the songs out of my head but don't want to. Brilliant.

The show was a birthyday treat, it was absolutely amazing the songs, the cast and the scenes, Beverley Knight...wow what a voice, just wish "Frank " was not so wooden was not impressed with his acting, but absolutely fantastic show, When she sang Queen of the Night I got goosebumps..... and got all chocked up......nearest thing to Whitney I have ever heard....well done.

Absolutely amazing as soon as the curtains open to when they fall. Beverley Knight is simply fabulous as Rachel Marron and her voice is so powerful it knocks your socks off. Definately a show you will want to see again and again.
