REVIEWS

“Stephen Weller played Roger DeBris with glorious understatement and it’s to be hoped that Peter Kay will do the same when he takes over the role”

Caroline Woolard, South Wales Argus

“Special mentions for … Stephen Weller as Scrooge’s nephew and the young Ebenezer, who had another fine set of lungs”

Caron Parsons, BBC Bristol

“But the story is not the main feature in this show – it is the music and the incredible, athletic singing of the entire cast. I have never seen a show with such universally strong voices … most memorable perhaps [is] the all-round excellence of Stephen Weller’s Martin Guerre.”

Fleur Kinson, Theatre Review, Oxford

“…a special mention should be made of Stephen Weller, Joanna Riding and Matthew Cammelle, as they would have made Gordon Craig proud with their seemingly effortless vocal energy and sheer talent.”

Andi Reiss, Daily Info, Oxford

“…Abelard is a difficult role…(it) needs to be played by someone who is dashing, yet able to keep the audience on side and make it understand his dilemma after the loss of grace. Weller does that and is especially superb in the long solo “I Am Sure”. There is great beauty in the sad refelction of his late Act II song “I Gave Myself To Human Loving”…Carson and Weller make beautiful music together in their declaration of love…

Ken Longworth, Newcastle Herald
