User review by John Smart for Aloha from Hawaii (Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent)
24th Oct 14: First class show - it was almost sad because it was so real it raises the question of what might have been.. Elvis would have been proud - stoke should be proud to have produced such talent.

User review by SST for To Kill a Mockingbird (New Victoria Theatre, Woking)
10th Oct 14: Enjoyable. Powerful. Excellent interpretation. Hard to hear and understand Scout and Dill which was a shame.
User review by M Gibson for April in Paris
5th Oct 14: Fantastic performance on Tuesday 30 September 2014 at which the understudy for Joe McGann had to take over due to unforeseen circumstances. Shobna Gulati was wonderful as usual and so was the actor who 'stepped up' to play 'Al' on that night (Robert Ashcroft). His delivery and comic timing were superb and so was the audience reaction to him. Robert Ashcroft deserves acclaim as does the whole of Tuesday night's performance. It was a superb performance and an extremely appreciative audience.

User review by Gavin Law for Hello Norma Jeane (The King's Head Theatre, Inner London)
30th Sep 14: Have you ever wanted to be truly loved by someone? Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a just a play about Marilyn Monroe coming back from the dead. It is so much more, delving richly into the notion of what it means to truly be loved. Set entirely in a Hollywood motel room in the intimacy of the Kings Head Theatre, we first meet chipper Essex boy Joe (Jamie Hutchins) who has turned up to take his ballsy, foul-mouthed grandmother Lynnie (Vicki Michelle) back home to Essex after she has ‘wandered off’ from the nursing home that he has reluctantly put her into. But when Lynnie delivers the ace up her sleeve – revealing that she is in fact Marilyn Monroe, coming out of hiding after hiding away in an Essex seaside town for several decades, we are catapulted into a journey that deftly alternates between high comedy and heartbreaking poignancy. Can this mad Essex granny really be Marilyn? Vicki Michelle does a wonderful job in playing with our minds (alternating between a cross between Catherine Tate’s ‘Nan’ and
