The reviews are in, here’s what everybody thinks of Angela's Ashes the Musical

It has been both a book and a film, but now Frank McCourt's memoir is to be told through another medium: song.

Angela's Ashes The Musical is currently being staged in The Lime Tree Theatre, Limerick before it’s big move to Dublin's Bord Gáis Energy Theatre next week.

With a score described as "haunting" and "unforgettable", it promised to bring audiences to tears one minute before laughing out loud the next - but did it live up to its expectations?

Here’s what people have been saying:

Catch the production at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre from July 18 - 30.
