This has to be one of the best shows in the fringe, I cannot recommend this show enough. A feel good show for anyone!

We absolutely loved this show. It was West End caliber - so much talent that the stage could hardly hold it. Every single actor sang and acted their hearts out. We were able to talk with the cast after the show (they hung around outside the theatre) and you could tell they truly loved what they do, and they believe in the message. Don't miss it!

Just AMAZING and FABULOUS!!!! I enjoyed Six but think I actually love this more. Kids (12, 10 and 9) loved it too. Made me cry a bit as its everything I would want to say to my 12 year old daughter! The cast are sooooo good. We loved all of them! Go see! I would happily go back everyday...

If there were loudspeakers, on every street, playing the excerpt ‘Show Me The Way’, every night, then the world would be much better place…

There are not enough good words to describe this show. The phenomenal talent of the cast, combined with the outstanding songs and truly inspirational premise, make this an awe-inspiring and incredible performance. It is funny, poignant, emotional; and the stories of these women, on whose shoulders we stand, have never felt more relevant. We saw the show when it came to the Kings Theatre in Edinburgh in April, and it was even better for seeing it the second time. The actors are amazing – their energy is phenomenal, and their enthusiasm, commitment, belief, and acting, singing and movement skills are truly amazing. All four of the leads could be (should be) household names, they are so talented. The fact that the actors and the performance – and their energy – felt so fresh (when they have been touring this for months) was hugely impressive – they were just as full of belief and dedication and energy as the first time we saw them. There are so, so many highlights, and the show gets better and better as it goes on; perhaps our very favourite moment (from an absolute banquet of riches) was to go from the high energy of the Marys’ song to the incredibly measured and contained performance by the actor playing Rosa Parks, which gave it even extra poignancy (and her simply outstanding singing). But it’s all incredible. The cast are all incredible. Everyone should see this show. And they should play ‘Deeds Not Words’ from every loudspeaker too.

Musical Theatre Review (5/5 stars) 1 day ago

Well, there’s talent and joy in abundance in this all-female production. The singing is as good as it gets. The storytelling is lively and the dialogue, razor sharp. Lyrically, it’s as complex and straightforward as it needs to be to make its point. It makes clear its musical language from the start, and it speaks it fluently. The three-piece onstage band is brilliant. Every song is greeted with a roar of approval.
