Our first show at Edinburgh Fringe. Great music in a lovely theatre with super comfy seats. Definitely recommend!

We're not particularly Dolly Parton fans but loved this show. Great venue, sound quality and audience rapport set the scene and Hannah's voice was stunningly clear and powerful when it needed to be but sensitive enough to make me cry in her rendition of I will Always Love You!

I know a bit about Dolly because my friend is a great fan (and we got to see the real DP) so i bought us tickets to this. We were not disappointed!

Amazed no other reviews. These musicians work hard to give a great performance. I would like to have seen the other shows they are in but was already committed to other shows during my short time in Edinburgh.

We are not the biggest Dolly Parton fans, but this show was one of the best we saw. The story is intriguing and the songs very, very well performed. The two artists have a sense of humour and know how to win over an audience. The sound balance was spot on (there must be a very good sound engineer working at this venue). Superb air conditioning, amazingly comfortable seats which are highly raked, so it really doesn't matter where you sit.
Don't be put off by the small, over hot queuing area where the usher will bark instructions forgetting to use "please" and thank you".

The Dolly Parton Story does exactly what you expect, but this simplicity is not a criticism. Much like Dolly herself, it is earnest and sincere, both rowdily fun and surprisingly beautiful, and you get exactly what you want from it. As too do they describe Parton, this show takes the music seriously, but never itself.
