What I liked

This is right in my wheel house so I was thoroughly looking forward to it and I was not disappointed! I have so many compliments to offer, there won’t be room. The show is extremely well-researched and will sit well with anyone who is well-versed in the history and many idiosyncrasies of Henry VIII. However, someone with even a casual understanding of the great king and his six unfortunate wives will be drawn in immediately. The performances are effortless and engaging. The skill of the performers and training is obvious and the message is powerful! I loved it and if I wasn’t already booked up, I’d go back for a second helping.

What I didn't like

Nothing. If you do go, give ample time for parking. It’s not walking distance from the main Fringe strip but worth the effort to get there.

My overall impression

I was smiling the entire time and I haven’t stopped thinking about it! A dynamic and lovely company of actors and I wish I could see it again!
