"Becky O’Brien made her BGT mark with an uncannily Judy Garland-esque version of 'Over The Rainbow', and she revealed during her set that she has since appeared with Garland’s daughter, Lorna Luft. Her versions of 'The Trolley Song' and 'The Man that Got Away' were well received, but the biggest reception was reserved for 'Over the Rainbow'."

"The vocalist had a truly amazing voice, in fact her top note at the end may have shattered a few glasses. This was followed by an appearance from guest dancers Katya Virshilas and Jared Murillo who demonstrated their brilliant dance skills as they danced The Charlston."

I was fortunate enough to be present at the opening night of the fantastic, all singing, all dancing extravaganza that .

"Much of that effect is down to four versatile and polished lead singers, Rebecca Lesewski, Lucy van Gasse, Adam Ellis and Simon Schofield, the latter returning to a venue where he made a big impression in last year’s New Jersey Nights show. In a sparkling duet with Lesewski, the two also spotlight their tap dance skills, while van Gasse’s soaring soprano gives full justice to Gershwin’s "Summertime"."

"You wait around for a proper summer season show—and three come along all at once. At least that’s something of the effect in this bold song and dance extravaganza from David King’s Spirit Productions. Take a timeless tribute show devoted to the likes of Gershwin, Porter and Berlin, drop in a dance couple straight from the Strictly stable, and top it off with one of the more deserving finds from this year’s Britain’s Got Talent quest."

"The blend of perfectly-performed songs and energetic dance numbers, provides a non-stop reminder of the brilliance of those songwriters of the past.  The show covers a huge variety of styles and the cast adapt remarkably to every challenge that comes their way, from big carefully-crafted ballads to the early jazz of the Cotton Club era. There's poignancy and humour, gloriously-romantic swirling dance routines and some staggeringly-good high-energy tap dancing..."
