“A great evening out which will make you laugh with delight, bring a tear to your eye and send you home with a real sense of appreciation for the “Carpe Diem” philosophy of wartime London.”
5 STARS, The Public Reviews

“A gorgeous, glamorous, hugely entertaining show…a rich examination of people living each day as if it were their last… In short, this is a proper play, a play with music.”
East Anglian Daily Times

“Matthew Bugg’s music and lyrics brilliantly evoke 1940s Britain… beautifully moving… a well-told and captivating love story.”
4 STARS, What’s On Stage

“It’s theatrical roots spread from Kander and Ebb’s ‘Cabaret’ with a dash of ‘Design For Living’, and touches of Rattigan angst… The book is good, the story absorbing…the songs are terrific.”
The Times

“Witty, entertaining, wonderfully stylish… miss ‘Miss Nightingale’ and miss out!”
5 STARS Gaydarnation

“This is a brave, original show: and it rewards in a subtle way.”
Musical Theatre Review 

“This is more than just a spectacle; it’s a moving, funny and grounded tale of taboos and prejudice in Britain during the Second World War. The different musical genres included in the show: from jazz to ballad, tongue in cheek ditty to heart wrenching plea, meld together perfectly to evoke the spirit of the 1940s… this is a glorious show, where quirky wit and innuendo lie above a tale of love, loss, and hope, where every day needs to be lived as your last, and the best you can do is stand up and be counted.”
5 STARS, London Theatre Review

“Bugg’s pastiche songs are wonderful”
 4 STARS, Libby Purves

“There is no other show like this in theatres at the moment… it is the hidden gem of musicals. My only regret is that I only saw it once.”
Sheffield Live!

“Clever, thoughtful and entertaining… A big hit”
4 STARS Jewish Chronicle

“The numbers are delightful. Whether it’s saucy tongue-in-cheek numbers on the lack of sausages or bittersweet laments on broken dreams, the songs are excellent… This musical has great bawdy humour and real emotional pathos.”
The Huffington Post

“The standing ovation from the crowd at the Leicester Square Theatre proved that the show was a massive hit”
4 STARS The Gay UK

“A beautiful and heartwarming story of love interwoven with incredible musical numbers… deeply touching, and raucously funny, the show is set to become a much loved favorite.”

5 STARS, The New Current

“A wonderful, glamorous and highly entertaining musical that certainly captures the feel of war torn Britain in the 1940s.”

Miss Nightingale is a gorgeous love letter to the sex, scandal and showbiz of 1940s London… hugely enjoyable.”

“Excellent then… This is classic musical theatre, nothing less.”
Jildy Sauce

“Funny, saucy, sassy and poignant… This is a fine show, providing a great evening’s entertainment on many levels. Don’t miss this – it’s a joy!”

“A clever telling of an illicit gay love story… an excellent production that proved most moving as well as providing great entertainment.”
The Argus 

“A refreshing change to the cheesy, karaoke-fest style musicals that seem to be abounding at the moment. With 20 original songs and an incredibly versatile troupe of actors and musicians, the raw talent of the cast is clear to see throughout.”

“This turbulently fun and meaningful 1940’s musical play is a classic in the making; a showcase of British Music Hall Variety, Berlin burlesques, jazz, swing and much more built around the struggles of a country at war.”
Gay Leeds 

“What is so refreshing about Miss Nightingale is that it is a largely original tale set against a deluge of unimpressive, jukebox, movie-remake musicals.”
This Is Gloucestershire 

“At the heart of the show it is a love story and not just a love story to hang a thousand cliches on… This is fabulous, flirty and outstanding stuff. Go and see it.”
Nottingham Evening Post

“Great musicianship, saucy humour and an enthusiastic cast performing a love story with twists at every turn – what’s not to like?”
4 STARS, Remote Goat

“Funny, uplifting and often touching, this intelligent musical is set in war-time London in 1942, against a backdrop of air-raids, rationing and blackouts… guaranteed to put a smile on your face!”

“Bugg’s atmospheric melodies evoke this bygone era perfectly… seriously entertaining.”
Viva La Musical

“The tale of two men and their love and of a story about a woman finding herself. With great musicality, moving performances and a serious message wrapped in great humour, Miss Nightingale could be a classic”

“This fabulous musical features original songs performed by a group of actors-singers-musicians… It’s not all music and dancing; there are some great insights into the everyday lives of the people in wartime London, especially the underground lives of homosexuals at the time… Although some of the story lines are in fact very insightful, this is such a humorous show that had an audience of all ages laughing throughout.”
