TESTIMONIALS & REVIEWS

"I loved every minute of this from the word go... you’re thrown into the action immediately and from there on in I was a goner. This story evoked all kinds of emotions in me from pure rag... to tears of joy and despair" (Sinfully Book Reviews on Romeo & Jude)

"Wonderful performances pepper this intriguing contemporary twist on Romeo and Juliet.... The full-cast delivers Shakespeare's words and emotions as convincingly as they deliver their off-stage personae.... In the smaller, more intimate, scenes, both plot and characters come alive." (AudioFile on Romeo & Jude)

"Wonderful reworking of Shakespeare's classic. A brilliant modern take on Romeo and Juliet. Writing, direction, performance and editing all top class." [Audible US Listener Reveiw for Romeo & Jude]

"The voice actors were outstanding, and that applies to the entire cast. Whoever cast these voice artists into their respective roles for this production did a fantastic job. Every character sounded just right and gave the play a fantastic authentic feeling. The production was brilliant, the music was fitting, and the sound effects enhanced the experience." (Goodreads.com on Romeo & Jude)

"Using a mixture of narrative and photographs projected onto the back drop of the stage, the show then follows Simon and Garfunkel’s musical and personal progression through time. With careful attention to detail, the show delicately captures the mood and style of each era." (Derby Telegraph on S&G Story)

"The standing ovation at the end of this impressive show was a given as soon as the final note faded from the very first song." (Burnley Express on S&G Story)

"I enjoyed the full experience - so much so I couldn't stop listening until it had finished!" (Listener Feedback, Audible)

"AMAZING. The filmic flow of the script and the direction of actors and the ensemble is flawless!" (Listener Feedback, Audible)

"WOW, just WOW. The actors were amazing and the sound effects were perfect.." (Listener Feedback, Audible)

"David's attention to detail and ability to get vivid, real performances out of actors is second to none and his easy-going warm attitude makes him a pleasure to work with, even in high pressured environments." (Wireless Theatre)

"THIS WAS PHENOMENAL!!! I couldn't stop listening. The sound effects, character voices, and background sounds just tied it all in. I can not thank the creators enough for this most exceptional piece of work." (Listener Feedback, MOTOE)
