At a point and time when women were expected to be a good housewife, Grace stands up for herself against her father, earning the title "The Pirate Queen" and inspiring men and women to follow her. When the English begin hostilities towards Ireland, Grace has the intelligence and strength to negotiate a truce with the menacing Queen Elizabeth I.

So good we finally got this in London even if only one night.

Deborah A Kiser24th February

Wonderfully performed beginning to end-hope to see this as a full musical production one day!

Elizabeth Jameson24th February

The musical score was beautiful and the singing wonderful however the lyrics/vocals were muffled so it wasn’t possible to understand clearly, which spoilt the evening

Kathleen Morse24th February

This was a charity premier night in London, following a successful run on Broadway. We enjoyed the story, quality of singing and orchestra, but found a complete lack of change of costumes very surprising given the storyline was over a period of 3 years. Need to increase the budget if this show will tour.

we thought the Act 1 was ok (seen better, seen worse), but loved Act 2. We are frequent theatre goe-ers but not into the name game so didn't buy into the audiences obviously heightened approval of some cast members simply because they recognised their name. The Pirate Queen has a stunning voice, the lady's voice who sang QEI was not at all to our taste (but sounded beautiful when singing together with Grace) and when the whole company sag it was simply stunning. I LOVED the Irish dancing. The orchestra were outstanding. And all for a good cause. Please don't ask about our seats though

Great to see it, sound quality not great Product is there needs reworking heavily Some lyrics are really corny Queen Elizabeth with an opera production detracted and confused However cast was actually huge, for a one off performance Big question is where does it go from here, assuming that it was a toe in the water BTW was in US when it was going through rehearsals and launch in Chicago, was going to see it on Broadway when it got cancelled What would be better and easier would be to update Martin Guerre
