I attended this performance on thrusday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it, i think all the actors did a fine job and i myself am professionally trained and a regural working actor. I think the comments of Lynne Mulvenna and Suzanne Sellers were slighlty harsh, Mills Johnstone and Fullerton were fully confident in their roles, however when sharing a role the other two performers do not travel on the same journey as the rest of the cast, maybe this was the problem. Their characterisation was not as strong but vocally i feel Miss Sellers in particular had the voice to be heard, with a massive range and a very colourful tone. I do agree with a lot of David's comments, however one thing I find lacking in this review is the mention of the singing itself and the musical direction. The job of Miss Amy Barnes has sadly went unoticed, great job done with a very complex musical score. - Annie

I also managed to catch this performance and enjoyed it at most parts, be it am new to the theatre so cannot be that critical. David Somerville is bang on buck about Mills performance of June and she totally lifted up the production for me.
I thought the play was entertaining overall and had me and my partner laughing happily throughout. - Alan

I also attended this production. The show is not as easy to perorm as you might think. I have seen this show performed before to a much better standard. I certainly did not laugh all the way through as I felt in places the humour was skimmed over and in some cases the punch lines were not delivered properly. I can understand that people may have found it very entertaining but they may have nothing else to compare it to. The review is very fair and as an outsider who doesn't know anyone involved in the production, feel it's gives a true picture of how the show was presented. - Iain

I also saw the performance on Wednesday and because the script is so good rather than the actor's skills there were some titters in the audience but there were very few moments of rip roaring laughter which were heard ringing around the Crawfurd theatre a couple of years ago when it was performed last. Shame it didn't live up to that standard. A little disappointing in comparison. - Katie

Anyone who cannot raise a laugh at the humour of this show must be very sullen. I saw the performance on Wednesday night and thought it was superb. The acting and choreography were perfectly performed; overall it was very entertaining. I laughed all the way through. I think that Mr Somerville was perhaps a little too critical in his review. At the end of the day it is the audience who decide. The individual opinion of one individual is of no consequence. - Brian G Sellers, I.S.M.
