Critic Reviews (5)

August 27th, 2018
For a previous production

"It feels as if she’s covering well-trodden ground, but upbeat, well-written songs and a winning stage presence keep the show surfing a wave of good spirits...Broadbent is a winsome, winning presence, greeting the problems she addresses with a cheery smile. She occasionally lapses into perky musical theatre insincerity but is always warm and engaging. So even if she’s not moving the needle of comedy, she offers a dependable hour’s amusement."

For a previous production

"This autobiographical musical hour is a fast-paced, well-delivered take on the generation gap(s), glass ceilings, millennium generational angst, and top-quality humour. Broadbent’s voice has matured beautifully – her soaring notes are exquisite contrast to her lyrics – powerful, witty words with a cut like acid that make you laugh out loud...Consistently funny, this is a fantastic hilarious gem."

August 16th, 2018
For a previous production

"Broadbent is radiant on stage, and clearly enjoying herself...The audience were laughing from the word go, over the Broadbent’s pressing questions, her confession that she can only cook Bolognese and chilli, and her daring and brilliant songs...The show provokes thinking as much as laughter. Broadbent is wonderfully, straightforward in her discussion of heterosexual female desire...Although Broadbent’s comedy is quick, clever and warm, it is her songs that truly stand out.

For a previous production

"Broadbent has stage presence and all the talents required and then some. She has a great singing voice, she has the ability to write good songs and a wonderful comedic imagination to meld all these talents together and in doing so provides an hour of classy entertainment and laughs...Go see her. You never know it may be your chance to see the next big thing."

For a previous production

"Using an innovative mix of traditional stand-up and musical comedy, this award-winning songwriter cleverly considers what success means in the modern world and asks if the goals we set are truly our own or are they what we fear they should be?...With blistering wit and a 'Glee'-style delivery, Broadbent creates a must-see show that leaves the audience clutching their sides, tapping their feet, and eagerly waiting for more."
