5.0 star rating S Lyttle from London, England


A fantastic show from start to finish. The costumes were amazing and the singing was outstanding.

3.0 star rating Louise Sorrell from Inverness


This was the first time we had left a musical at the interval as the level of singing was way too loud. So much so that it interfered with my friend's hearing aids. This was a real shame as the performances from all cast members were excellent as was the staging. A case of less is more I think

3.0 star rating Pier from Edinburgh,


Dreamgirls it is an outstanding play with wonderful music. The Edinburgh cast performance seemed flat if compared to legends like the kinds of Jeniffer Holiday, J. Hudson, etc. The cast did their best but overall the show lacked of the soul and depth that you would expect from this love and friendship story. If the original cast (1980s) were to be a double espresso, this one seemed to me like a watered down single shot Americano. On positive note, the orchestra performed exceptionally well. Overall it was entertaining, only if you get the cheapest tickets. Not worth the premium price.

We have never left a musical at half time but could not stand the volume of the music. Singers were good but far too loud
