Turn & Face The Strange - The Story of Mick Ronson

The combination of superb live music and lighting made for an electrifying experience, tinged with poignancy too
Julia Pattison, Pocklington Post 02/05/2019
The set, staging and lighting were fabulous
Just Beverley 29/04/2019
The show spliced all kinds of production together seamlessly with the flair of the Creative Production Team
Jack Bell, Whats On Hub 27/04/2019
Funnily enough, although the stage was expertly designed and lit to look like we were in for a rock concert, for me, the music took a back seat, as I was absolutely enchanted by what I was seeing on the huge backdrop screens
Jackie Foottit, North West End 25/04/2019

Connecting Voices: Orpheus in the Record Shop

Jason Addison’s light plot changes to warm, yellow colours, the musical mood lifts and we’re all on the player's side. He's won us over and left us feeling happy for him and happy inside.
Phil Hopkins, Yorkshire Times 10/10/2020
...it’s a pretty fantastic set of sights and sounds
Eliza Hayward, Always time for theatre 10/10/2020

Dark Winter

...with striking side lighting casting ominous shadows throughout.
Jack Chamberlain, Hot Potato 08/11/2018
...while clever lighting and sound effects also help paint a very vivid picture. ​
Sarah Morgan, On Yorkshire magazine 18/03/2018

Slime

Jason Addison adds some simple but effective touches of lighting, memorably a series of purple camera flashes that fill the garden with a new and exciting colour.
