“[Sheals] rendition of ‘The Man That Got Away’ is among the finest musical performances I have ever seen, exhibiting a subtly and understanding of Garland which is astonishing - and deeply moving" - The Stage

"Fresh faced Lucy Penrose as 'Young Judy', not only is a spooky doppelgänger for Garland herself, but has just as thunderous a voice attached to her dainty demeanour.." - Grumpy Gay Critic

"Lucy Penrose's tremulous vibrato conjures up vivid images of the child prodigy" - The Stage

“Helen Sheals is especially good as CBS Judy showing that, behind the supposed termagant, lay a true showbiz pro at the mercy of vacillating suits” - The Guardian

“Lucy Penrose as Young Judy impressively combines prepubescent gaucheness with an instinctive musical gift” - The Guardian

“Sheals’ Judy is pinpoint accurate in tone, posture and in a succession of exemplary vocal performances” - Musical Theatre Review


This production run time is approximately 1 hour



Comedy at the King's Head Theatre - Simon Brodkin & Bella Hull
