Time Out London

...a riotously gender-fluid immersive production... Even if you ignore all the bells, whistles and man-snogs, the fact of the matter is that Hytner has assembled a preposterously good comedy cast.'

...combining eroticism and enchantment, levity and darkness, Hytner’s latest hit scales the heights...it’s not just a show for (almost) all ages but one that deserves to be talked about for years to come.'

This is hardly as radical as it seems to want to position itself, but director Nick Hytner... and his fellow creative team of designers... keep the show fast and fluid, fun and occasionally surprising.'

The Guardian (UK)

Festive fun, ear-nibbling and high-wire antics infuse Nicholas Hytner’s startling role-reversal production...I would have enjoyed it still more if it released the microscopic beauties of Shakespeare’s text...'

...Nicholas Hytner’s immersive, irreverent, spectacular, slyly feminist, sometimes properly dreamlike staging of Shakespeare’s summer special...The positives outweigh any overkill...'

This is not to say it’s not a lot of fun... the production has a timely embracive message, is easy to follow and enjoy. There’s clarity of verse throughout... but what it lacks is clarity of purpose.'

...Nicholas Hytner’s gloriously funny, immersive take on A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Bridge Theatre...David Moorst excels as the obstreperous hobgoblin Puck.'

The London Evening Standard

There are some overblown moments, yet this irreverent interpretation has the atmosphere of a party. It’s best experienced as a groundling in the theatre’s pit, where the sense of mischief spreads like a giant smile.'
