The critical consensus

May not be as big, bold and brash as other productions, but succeeds in being heartfelt, honest and human. Not to mention constantly and gloriously funny.

****(*)Peter Callaghan, Review Sphere, 03/10/2018

Big, powerful emotions are harnessed to most glorious effect.

*****Thom Dibdin, All Edinburgh Theatre, 04/10/2108

Pure Blighty at heart, Calendar Girls is a quintessentially British comedy.

****(*)Dominic Corr, The Reviews Hub, 03/10/2018

It is fair to say that Firth and Barlow’s attempt is definitely worth skipping that next W.I. meeting for, but if you are looking for a groundbreaking new musical, I’m afraid this won’t be your star baker.

***(*)(*)Katie Stephen, Edinburgh Guide, 05/10/2018

So, while it may not have you singing the soundtrack on your way home, Calendar Girls The Musical will leave you with warmth, a full heart and some very quotable one-liners.

****(*)Emily Christie, The Wee Review, 05/10/2018

This version of Calendar Girls is a richly comic and emotional experience; and one that generates a real sense of female solidarity, backed by good men, in an increasingly sombre world.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 06/10/2018
