The Stage ★★★★★
'Sarah-Louise Young’s attention to detail and vocal styling is meticulous, but it’s her rapport with the audience that sets this show apart, reinventing the tribute act by turning it around and celebrating the fans too.'
'A brilliant dissection of the diva’s genius’ Sarah-Louise Young wows with a tribute to a true one-off.'
British Theatre.com ★★★★★
'Funny and warm-hearted, with a momentum that never lets up. For die-hard fans, there are plenty of opportunities to sing along and even come up on stage. For all of us, it is a delightful hour of cabaret in the hands of a consummate performer.'
Musical Theatre Review ★★★★★
'A masterclass in creating a high quality, stylish, piece of theatre for and by a solo performer.'
West End Wilma ★★★★★
'This was one of the greatest hours of my life!'
Broadway Baby ★★★★★
'Sarah-Louise Young delivers a true masterpiece that only she (and potentially Kate Bush) could pull off.'
The Scotsman ★★★★
'Magic lies in the fusion of Kate Bush’s talent with Sarah-Louise Young’s in the service of connection near and far.'
The Times ★★★★
'Young’s flutey voice, wide-eyed stare and dreamy, art-school choreography capture the singer uncannily, but her winsome show, devised with the director Russell Lucas and surely bound for a longer life beyond Edinburgh, is more than an act of mimicry… Young has crafted a sweet and, by the end, communal exploration of what it means to be a maverick, and to be the person who likes mavericks. Much more of this woman’s work, please.'
The Sun ★★★★
'A weird, wild wonderful spectacle that will have you humming Wuthering Heights for the rest of the day. This is what the Fringe is about. An Evening Without Kate Bush is a sheer delight.'
The Edinburgh Reporter ★★★★
'There is only a small handful who can replicate the singer’s unique voice. Young can count herself among that select group.'
