The Songbook of Judy Garland is a wonderful and impossibly stylish production which pays tribute to a true legend. I’m desperate to try and catch it again before it leaves Glasgow and would urge anyone else to do the same!The Public Reviews
Under Christopher Manoe’s direction, with classic choreography from Arlene Phillips, it’s difficult to not be transported back. The swelling melodies and building moments of tap dancing will generate even the coldest of hearts to melt a little.Gay Times
Entirely captivating, heavy with dark humour and pathos…The Stage
