“Utterly brilliant… I found the show so powerfully sentimental that I was misty-eyed for much of it and was so thankful to hear the soundtrack of my life played with such verve and love.” – The Courier-Mail

“The poetry of the lyrics sing with meaning on the breath of her powerful voice, and an audience sits riveted, entranced and enchanted , not only by her astounding talent, but by the burning emotion of an outsider desperate to belong, and finding in the songs of her heroes the security of love, peace, equality and belonging. What begins as a tribute in song becomes an anthem to their gift to the world and in the end a eulogy for the genius who lay behind the success and the enduring legacy of the four lads who sang covers in Liverpool’s Cavern before being brought into the light and coloured world from the darkness of obscurity.” – Canberra Critics Circle

“An infectious rediscovery of the band’s iconic, diverse catalogue anew, channelled through a sole female voice. Its song curation and story craftedness combine to make Lady Beatle an example of cabaret at its very best; to make you laugh, cry and smile in hope for peace, equality and love.” – Blue Curtains Brisbane

“Naomi Price has the kind of voice that can raise goosebumps on arms when singing any song – combining this talent with the music of The Beatles is a stroke of genius… Fans of The Beatles will love the music, fans of cabaret will adore Price’s energy and emotional range.” – Australian Stage

“This stellar show re-imagines the greatest Beatles hits—we’re talking banger after banger here. Headliner Naomi Price is big and VERY bold, and will captivate you until the curtains close with your favourite Beatles tracks.” – The Urban List

“Fresh and unpredictable, with some truly beautiful arrangements only enhancing the originals. Rather than wishing they hadn’t altered a classic, I found myself actually hearing the lyrics, and therefore the sentiments, for the first time. It’s some hard-core talent that can achieve that balance.” – Cultural Flanerie

“When the band plays and the voice soars, and the entire sold-out opening night crowd sings along, you know you’re at one of the best new shows of the decade.” – XS Entertainment

“What a pocket rocket Price is, backed by a band of four incredibly talented musicians who took us all on a journey with skill and dexterity… A class act!” – ArtsHub

“Filled with fizz and pop, ribald riffing and cheeky humour…If you didn’t leave feeling myriad messy beautiful emotions, it can probably be safely said that you’re a robot.” – Scenestr
