  1. Geraldine chamberlain

    I was lucky enough to see this on Broadway in February 2019 just before I flew home to UK one of the best shows I’ve seen up there with ‘ Tina’! The cast were outstanding and the storyline too I was 5 rows from the stage and sang every single word! Beyond Nostalgic

  2. Went to NYC just before the lockdown in March. The show was truly amazing. Can’t wait to see it in London. A must for the Temps fans and music lovers.
