“This should be in the West End"; "I’ve never heard a new musical come up to this one"; "a masterwork"; "a true homage to the women it celebrates" - Outstanding Show - Fringe Review
“a triumph in every sense“; " a spine tingling musical soundscape"; "more than deserves to be seen by a very wide audience" - ***** - Latest Brighton
"touched everyone's hearts"; "has the spirit of Les Miserables, and a strong potential to be taken into the West End" - ***** - Broadway Baby
London show - "Simon Scardanelli’s original score is the beating heart of this musical, arranged for seven women’s voices, cellist and guitarist, with additions of ukulele, flute, tambourine, accordion and keyboard from the ensemble of actor-musicians, all with lyrical voices of accuracy and beauty, solo and in harmony." - ***** - Musical Theatre Review
Watford show - "Simon Scardanelli's music has an utterly seductive folksy charm. The harmonies are stupendously good and again underline powerfully the theme of sisterhood"; "a life affirming show with an inspiring message about our shared capacity for tenacity and love which left the audience genuinely uplifted." - Watford Fringe Reviews
