Calendar Girls Reviews
Ann from England
Brilliant! - funny, moving, a real treat. Made me proud to be a woman. Everyone leaving the theatre had a smile and all werel enthusing. The photography scene was really clever and very funny. The final scene with the sunflowers was very moving. I can't praise the show enough.

DONT GO THERE TO SEE GEMMA ATKINSON
My wife persuaded me to go to see Calendar Girls and sold it to me on the basis that Gemma Atkinson was in the show. It is correct that Gemma is in the show, but only for about 5 minutes and is fully dressed. The show poster depicts Gemma as a main character, this couldn't br further from the truth. So gents, if its young totty you want then im sorry but you will have to settle for June Brown!

Saw this show yesterday and it was utterly brilliant! Came out on a high knowing that this is hased on a true story. How the cast portrayed such heartwrenching emotions as well as laughter was fantastic. All are cast in the right roles and you really get the feeling that they thoroughly enjoyed performing this show. See it and be uplifted and entertained and proud to be a woman.

PLAY V FILM
I saw the show a week ago and watched the film again last night. I enjoyed them both and thought with the limitations of a stage set and a smaller cast, the show was a good representation of the film. The best thing I can say about June Brown was that I never once saw Dot Cotton and I mean that as a compliment. Jerry Hall was good in a role that had to be re-written for her as an American. I thought Sara Crowe played her role the best. I suspect that some of the negative reviewers had gone for the wrong reasons, i.e. to see "Dot" or ogle at Gemma. All in all, a good 2 hours entertainment and good value. I have spent more on a football match without being entertained as much.

very well done, entertaining, funny and sad all at the same time. Highly recommended
Alfie from London
Watched the show with a packed house on Saturday night from the stalls, very good atmosphere in the theatre. Show is very enjoyable, June Brown is very difficult to hear should stick to the one liners, which she delivers well. Disappointed with the lack of Gemma Atkinson, show poster is misleading. Most other cast performed well (especially J.Hall) except Anita Dobson - voice too harsh to play a Yorkshire lass, not very believable. Would recommend it, a little tinkering with the cast will give the show a good chance of a long run.
