Price brings the house down with her sassy banter, hilarious comedic timing and velvety vocals. This girl can sure belt it out with the best of them.

Aussie Theatre

Price is glorious fun and leaves the audience smiling as she smashes through Adele’s soundtrack with the respect and honesty you would expect from the cabaret scene’s crème de la crème of talent.

Australian Stage

Spellbinding vocals and slick, witty patter… It’s easy to envisage this show going on in any of the world’s top cabaret venues.

XS Entertainment

An addictive mix of brazen cockiness and soul-baring vulnerability... By the end of the show, Price has blurred the lines between reality and homage, channeling the singing star impeccably.

Scenestr

The next big thing in Australian cabaret… Price’s extraordinary voice is one of the best; her comic timing impeccable and her stage presence arresting.

Aussie Theatre

Blowing the audience away with a powerful set of lungs, Price has all the talent of the Golden Globe winner and kept the hits rolling throughout the performance.

Australian Stage

Cheeky, gutsy, quite stunningly good… A powerhouse performance that never flags for a second.

Greenroom

Giving an explosive impersonation of the British songbird, and looking every inch her double, Price rips through the Adele songbook as though she were born to sing it…The next best thing to seeing Adele live.

Stage Whispers

An amply enhanced Price handles belting out big vocals then tossing off profanities and provocatively inappropriate humour with equal ease and aplomb. In the cabaret setting, her delivery of topical quips is perfectly judged, stepping on the line but not crossing it. Both poignant and pithy… Fabulously entertaining.

The Courier-Mail

Rumour Has It is a fabulous upbeat show, a joyous, heart-warming celebration of a major musical talent, performed with love, passion and skill by equally talented Australian artists led by the incomparable Naomi Price. It now embarks on a nine month Australia-wide tour. Catch it if you can, as it should not be missed.
