This woman is pure talent and she showcases her vast array of skills in this spectacular one woman show. Absolutely brilliant concept and storyline idea and I loved the original ideas she had for the show. Don't walk RUN to see this show. You'll be laughing from start to finish with this truly exceptional, beautiful, humble, beautiful performer. Genuinely wonderful show - my cup of tea.
This show deserves every possible award

Saw this show last night and was totally blown away. Jess is so so talented and I loved the story. Also the songs are AMAZING. The face filters are so funny!
Sorry the audience was a bit quiet. I think we were all just a bit stunned! Honestly this show deserves an award. Can’t get it out of my head!!!

Wow, just WOW!!
Took a chance on this one as I thought it would be another ‘been on Tv’ type. But SERIOUSLY! Already my favourite show!! I got a cheaper preview ticket, but would pay full price over and over again!!
I’ll be back….. and I’m not the terminator.

A blinder of a show! Highly recommended.
I was crying with laughter, blown away with her incredible voice and spot-on impressions.
Deep fake multi-media, brilliant songs and Olivia Coleman.
Topped off with a well deserved standing ovation and hilarious blooper outtakes as everyone is walking out (which are very worth staying to watch!)

This was such an incredible, innovative and funny show. I’ve never seen anything like it. Jess is a really brilliant impressionist with a stellar voice. The story of the show is crazy, but once you’re on board it’s a brilliant ride. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Amazing music too. Five gold stars to you Jess!

The audience I was part of was a little subdued on the night, maybe not giving the love that she thrives on, but there can be no doubt that we were witnessing a true pro at work, and what a singing voice! No wonder all the TV work comes her way

Voice Magazine (5/5 stars) 3 days ago

All in all, Legacy is a great escape into a world of Jess’s own making, filled with celebrities, great boiler suits and the ghost of Jess’s mum? (at least I think it was her ghost). If the world was to end in an hour, I’d want to be sitting next to Jess on the space shuttle because, if anyone can take your mind off the end of the world, Jess is the only person for the job.
