Nomso13th July

Captivating, intense and emotional are the first 3 words that come to mind, when asked to describe just how good this show was. The theatre and setting in the vaults was beautiful, and the performance from Apphia was world class. I won’t be forgetting this show anytime soon!

Clorinda Prina11th July

The lead was very good and the set was very atmospheric and there were a couple of powerful moments, i just feel that Nina Simone should actually have been singing during the singing moments as her voice is unique. Also it was only over an hour long £30 a ticket was very expensive
