The Courier-Mail “As with their Adele treatment, Price and co-writer Adam Brunes employ a combination of tribute, parody, humour and reflection to create an insightful portrait of a real person rather than a caricature. Price’s performance transcends impersonation… She is in command throughout, from autobiographical monologue to standup banter, audience interaction and outstanding musical performance backed by a top-rate toe-tappin’ band.”
Greenroom “Naomi Price and the little red company give you the best and the worst of Miley in what is, surprisingly, an emotional and compassionate glimpse into what it means to grow up and out, and into yourself… She is a true cabaret artist, in the best sense of the word.” Full Review
Scene Magazine “Wrecking Ball is a fist-pumpingly well-written, intelligent and hilarious investigation of celebrity branding, smothered with Miley’s highly infectious ‘F*ck you, I’ll do what I want!’ attitude… Naomi Price, aka Miley, is ludicrous amounts of talented. It’s quite genuinely unreal.” Full Review
The Music “Price is hilarious and surprisingly moving as the walking, talking train wreck that is Miley Cyrus, a young girl teetering on the edge of self-destruction in her efforts to separate herself from her past. And it’s a hell of a lot of fun to watch.” Full Review
