Fabulous Melissa
8 February 2001 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Melissa was fantastic. Not because of Bleasdale's production - In fact compared to G.B.H and Jakes Progress it was rather disappointing. But because of performances from Jennifer Ehle, Julie Walter and the marvellous and incredibly underestimated Diana Weston it shone like a shining star.
