92% Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy (2017) Classy, insightful and extremely moving. Be prepared to shed a few tears because her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, speak so frankly and lovingly. - Orlando Sentinel EDIT

76% Hairspray Live! (2016) Hairspray Live! worked best of NBC's recent live musicals because the show captured the excitement of live performance. - Baltimore Sun EDIT
