Amazing show. Music, storytelling, production, acting, it has it all. Everything this show is trying to do it NAILS. Can see this having a big future beyond the fringe.

Just go, you're obviously thinking about it if you got as far as reading this. The whole thing works brilliantly, the songs and musicianship are outstanding I hope it tours because I'd like to see it again.

What a great show! The performers were amazing, the music was excellent, and the spin they put on this classic story was relevant and up-to-date. Can't recommend enough, we bought the CD.

Warm bluegrass/western style music with a banjo, stand-up bass, and a couple of guitars. If this was music alone, it would be the best music I've encountered at the fringe, but it's so much more than that. It has a huge, capable cast who will help you to effortlessly believe every part of the story, including the clever "gender-swap". Without a doubt, this is a contender for the best thing I've seen here. It's the only show I intend to see more than once, as I am my enjoyment of it can only grow. Go, it's good.

What can I say apart from, you MUST see this musical! The songs are beautiful and impeccable, the choreography is stunning, the use of the stage and the set is so clever. I really only have amazing things to say about this musical and I hope it’s only up from here. Next stop, West End and Broadway?
5 stars!

Well this was excellent!
I dragged my husband along, and he felt it was the best show he's seen all week!
The music was wonderful, and the gender reversal and clever name changes were great. It was all done very touch in cheek, and updated to modern day mid west USA.
It was such a really fun evening, and I'd thoroughly recommend it for a fun night out !
Thank you for a wonderful and memorable show.

We weren't sure what to expect with this show but the musical talent just blew us away, the banjo playing was second to none. It was very funny and engaging with some excellent acting and talented cast

So far this fringe I have seen 5 new musicals, and this one was miles ahead of the rest. The score is gorgeous, the cast are all perfect in their roles and it switches effortlessly from tender moments to hilarity - a must see if you are a fan of musicals, folk music or Jane Austen.

As a lover or classic stories, bluegrass, musicals, and good theatre, I thoroughly enjoyed this show! Moments of intensity, silliness, musicality, and skills all around. Please see this show if you have a chance!
