Not having either read the book or seen the film this show was a real eyeopener.We had front row seats and for a start members of the cast shook us by the hand and welcomed us.We felt that although the whole cast were excellent ;the star of course was in a class of her own,both as regards her acting skills and her delightful and accomplished rendition of the songs.This show is superb and we cannot recommend it highly enough!! The colour may be purple but we shall rave about it until we`re blue in the face!!

A passionate , uplifting musical. I laughed and shed a tear. Amazing voices and harmonies.... one of the best I've seen

Loved this when I saw the preview, and had to return to see it again, which I have never done. Spine tingling singing and moving and uplifting story. Cynthia, Nicola and Sophie brilliant and great performances from all the cast , well deserved standing ovations. Would like this cast on a recording they were simply amazing.

Loved it. Huge fan of the film and was looking forward to seeing the musical here in the UK. The production was excellent and the performances Broadway quality. I highly recommend!
