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:

#AngelasAshesTheMusical the music is so wonderful and the performances at times breathtaking with all the humour and tragedy of the book! 🎉— dr annmarie ryan (@amreeryan) July 10, 2017
The casting boasts such Irish talent as Eoin Cannon as Frank, Jacinta Whyte as Angela, Clare Barrett as Grandma, Karen Ardiff as Mrs Finucane, Marty Maguire as Malachy, Bryan Burroughs as Quasimodo,
