for a previous production "By turn social history, comedy, theatre with a touch of magic thrown in — the story surrounds the excitement of the young boy discovering Harry Houdini and then discovering the escapologist is to visit his hometown. It’s the capacity though that Llewelyn-Williams has to immerse us in his story, to make you believe, feel and pull for him that sets the sole performer, and play, apart. A touch too long maybe and unsure of genre but an excellent 60 minutes." Full Review

for a previous production "This pacy one-man show with a strong sense of place...Llewelyn-Williams’s gabby protagonist is like a bright lantern lowered into a dark pocket of Welsh history...There’s little space for reflection or unification of these themes. Instead 'A Regular Little Houdini' is a show full of youthful momentum. Alan’s own daredevil stunt is grippingly told...Making a merit of the Warren’s claustrophobic space, this is both a breathless yarn and a dynamic account of Welsh history." Full Review
