The Room. A new musical by Alexander Abbott. A girl alone in a room. Why is she here? What is her story? In a series of pictures and conversations we learn the answers to these questions and more. Bit by bit we piece together her life and what has brought her here. The Room is a new one-act, one-woman musical where a girl tells her life story in a rainbow of emotions which will surprise, shock and entertain right up to the final note.

A brilliant show, by the lead performer Louise, this emotional performance has a outstanding unique reality that makes you believe this is real and you are looking into the room. Extremely emotional and that emotion transfers from the stage to the audience, it felt like I was living this harrowing tale whilst listening to the story through beautifully sung lyrics.
Well done Louise this was a rare treat I am glad I found.

An absolutely stunning performance in this one woman show. Louise’s voice is beautiful, haunting at times and the emotion she displays is exceptional. Her portrayal of the the girl is second to none. Definitely one to watch so don’t miss it.

Not sure whether to review here or on the Facebook page but very well produced. Lovely looking girl with a fantastic voice which keeps you captivated. I agree with comment about trying to brighten up the clothing but get it that she is in the same room. Flowery dress or pjs would compliment her looks and the story possibly.

Lovely story, sad in parts, but also nice at the same time. Louise has a great voice but I feel would benefit away from wearing jogging pants with t shirt and socks into a nice skirt or dress and should be barefoot anyway as lots of singing and a bit of dancing. Lovely show though.

A wonderful performance by Louise Thomas. What a Star she is. A fabulous voice with great diction. Go and see her one woman show.

An excellent one women show. Louise plays her part with emotion, singing her story with a beautiful voice. She totally encapsulates you into her life story. A very talented young lady.

Despite its tough subject matter, however, the 50 minute runtime went very quickly, so if you can manage its distressing themes, this is a show that simply cannot be missed.

Musical Theatre Review (3/5 stars) 33 days ago

This is such a brave production on every level. Very simply staged, Louise Thomas gives a compelling performance as ‘The Girl’ in this solo musical. Sung through, with off-stage keyboard accompanist (Alexander Abbott – also composer) this show relies heavily on the audience’s response to The Girl.

The Edit (5/5 stars) 37 days ago

Louise Thomas’s performance is as brilliantly harrowing at times as she magnificently explains her character’s strife. Her range in both emotional portrayal and expression throughout is extraordinary and it is supplemented expertly by very cleverly timed musical direction and atmospheric tones. Thomas possesses a rare talent, which duels an amazingly talented voice alongside a skilled enthusiasm and empathy for the role she portrays.

Everyone associated with this fantastic piece of work should feel proud and as an audience member you are simply in for a treat.
