what the others say
"The Sapphires is glossy and often silly, but it's zippy enough to make the tour worthwhile."
"A feelgooder spiced by social conscience, this is one of those underdog productions with potential to punch well above its weight. Go on, give it a chance."
"Soul music's alleged redemptive powers are fully at work in this jumbled, sketchily written but vastly appealing true-life musical comedy."
