Jack Gunn- choreographer/director

I was priviledged tonight to be in the audience of the Dorothy Squires show tonight.The writing, the staging and the performances were truly moving. The musical arrangements and their interpolation and harmonies was sensational. I was truly moved by the production.It is almost an insult to describe Al Pillay as a cross dressing comedy actor. He/she is a wonderful actor and brought enormous truth as an actor to the role.For those of us who saw and remember Ms Squires, she lived again. The musical style was exactly right and because it was sung with truth not comedy, reminded us of that time. I wish I could see it several times, to appreciate the direction and stagecraft and witty choreography on such a small stage. It was an absolutely moving celebration of a gutsy woman. I am sure that after Edinborough this could be slightly lengthened for a West End Run. Thank you.t

Ben Jonson's The Alchemist -- fast-paced, well staged, terrific fun!

This is a small theatre and small production company punching well above it's weight. This production of Hamlet has a fantastic cast and have made this original, shorter version of the play a real rollercoaster of a production. I hope to see it again before it ends.
