"This is a stunning adaptation from screen to stage and under Michael Grandage’s assured and slick direction, 'Frozen' will certainly run for years to come, especially if they continue to cast the production with the same calibre they have imbibed into the original cast...Grandage has brought 'Frozen' to life with sensitivity and verve showcasing what true family entertainment is about – big spectacle with truthful, honest and endearing performances that really envelop you in its magic spell."

for a previous production "Mark Thomas delivers a blisteringly funny yet searingly powerful look into one of the many chapters in his life...'Cuckooed' is blisteringly funny, searingly powerful, totally thought provoking and pure brilliance. Thomas strikes gold yet again." Full Review
for a previous production “Tall Stories return...with the latest of their picture book page to stage adaptations...The tale is told with the highest production values, the set provides plenty of surprises and the use of puppetry helps the story progress without the use of clunky scene changes...The music is a little bland and forgettable but service the production well. Tall Stories have always produced engaging, energetic, and appealing theatre and ‘Emily Brown and the Thing’ carries off that tradition with aplomb.” Full Review
for a previous production "Gill Robertson’s direction is sharp and strong, with real moments of tension, excitement and wonder which constantly leave the audience wondering what surprise is coming up next...'White' is what theatre is all about, striking performances, enchanting set, and above all true, moving and powerful storytelling. I urge every theatre going visitor to get along and see what could possibly be one of the most touching pieces of theatre this year." Full Review
