Read some of the ‘earth moving’ reviews below…

Behind the Arras ★★★★★

“Quality rings out with every note in what is wonderful entertainment and, for some, a heavy dose of nostalgia; 51 years ago Tapestry, a deceptively simple and unsophisticated, honest album that struck a chord which still rings today.”

“‘Beautiful’ is beautiful both in name and practice; a joyous show not to be missed.”

Black Country Radio

“… this production of Beautiful is, quite simply, stunning and top of my list for receipt of applause are the exquisite cast.”

“While the show is about finding your own voice and stepping out alone, the production itself shows that teamwork is hugely important too.”
