“A taut, plausible and ultimately moving production that goes some way to demonstrate the power of language, love and grief. ”
“This curious musical has a beautiful score but never finds its tone, flinging together schlock horror and romance. ”
“Laborious and faintly ludicrous... would seem way too long were it not for the stunning performance of Gillian Kirkpatrick. ”
