Critic Reviews (9)

Time Out London
July 24th, 2019

...while always watchable, it often feels like the only spark in ‘Madison County’ is the one between Russell and Baker-Duly. Which is important, but it lacks magic elsewhere.'

The Telegraph (UK)
July 24th, 2019

Everyone’s emotional investment is plain but the pay-off is nugatory...Finally there’s no bridging the yawning gap between the show’s aspirations to soulful intensity and its so-so, nondescript personality.'

...a good cast and some lovely harmonies are not enough to save this. I felt sorry for Russell and Baker-Duly as they tried to power the entire production with their small spark of romance.'
