Thought-provoking, Quirky, Refreshing, Confusing, Clever

See it if you’re taking young children to inspire them about how to be fantastically great.

Don't see it if you’re not a fan of Six or similar modern musicals.

See it if You have children. Bring them to it and help them to be inspired by these amazing women of the past. Cheap tickets and worth the price.

Don't see it if You have high standards. A great night out but not comparable to those massive shows

Funny, Great staging, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You love fun and upbeat musicals. There are similarities to Six, but It is aimed at a slightly younger audience yet I still enjoyed it!

Don't see it if Due to being based on a children's book some people may find it childish, but I found it fun and some jokes are aimed at an older audience.

"Ordinarily, a production built on a simplistic 'smash the patriarchy' brand of empowerment would leave me cold but this is not that. It is certainly feel-good but surprisingly nuanced. Pankhurst’s definition of suffrage acknowledges the class privilege of the first tranche of women permitted the vote and the show as a whole is thoroughly diverse."

I enjoyed the spirit of the show. Director Amy Hodge keeps things moving along briskly and with some sophistication. This musical doesn't quite change the world, but it offers a great time en route.

Playwright Chris Bush’s story is full of thoughtful meditations. [The cast] play at least three roles apiece and make impressive work of it.

Cooper ... has delivered a string of anthemically inclined, drum-tight songs in true grrrl-power style.There is a story here, slight but serviceable. Aimed to entertain and inspire anyone of any age, this [is a] well-tooled feminist hit.

The show is superbly cast and each of the ‘great women’ is a triple threat. Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World has a big party atmosphere, but it feels superficial.
