I can't recommend this show enough!!! The girls, alongside their guests, were absolutely fantastic, I just wish I could write about their show as eloquently as I'm sure they could. I laughed, I cried, I clapped til my hands hurt. The show was intimate (tiny venue) but was all the more enjoyable for it. As you can tell, I bloody loved it and would urge anyone to see it before their (too) brief run ends on the 4th.
