Susan Boyle musical: Fans give their verdict

Help

A musical based on the life of singer Susan Boyle has received its premiere in Newcastle, with fans travelling from as far as Australia to attend.

Boyle is played by Rab C Nesbitt actress Elaine C Smith, before the star herself comes on stage for the finale.

Early reviews of the production have been broadly positive, with the Daily Mail's Patrick Marmion opining there is "much fun to be had" from this "cocktail of schmaltz and hyperbole".
