I went to see this show not knowing what to expect and it was fantastic! From beginning to end it held my attention and the singing was so good from all of the cast, but especially from the star of the show! This is a must see!

5.0 star rating Rebecca Francis from Suffolk


My 3 friends had a fantastic time. The 2 female characters (playing Rachel and Nicky) had absolutely phenomenal voices. Thouroughly recommend this musical.

Took my daughter for her Birthday surprise . A friend had mentioned it to me as they had been to see it with Beverley knight and said it was brilliant . We saw it last night 27th June 2014 with Alexander Burke she was absolutely fabulous "what a voice" would highly recommend if you like the Witney Houston songs. The rest of the cast were also very good. Worth the money would highly recommend for a night out.

What we thought

Technological interesting AMAZED!

At the start you are treated to a full-on concert experience that Lady Gaga would be jealous of!

Chock-full of Houston's songs that made the film as memorable as it is today, but they fit well into the overall narrative well, without halting it.
