Cinderella

It looks gorgeous, especially when Cinders’ carriage – complete with unicorn – is unveiled, and the many soap bubbles blown into the audience keep the children entertained
John Murphy, The Stage 16/12/2019

Chiaroscuro

The mood of lyrical melancholy is tenderly caught by Jose Tevar's lighting, which blushes red, then turns blue as a bruise.
David Jays, The Times 15/09/2019
Creating its very own, real-life chiaroscuro with silhouettes and shadows cast onto the floor by the lighting’s bold blues and pinks (lighting design by Jose Tevar), we are successfully transported to a nightclub, gig or some rehearsal area for live performance
The Theatre Reviewer 10/09/2019
Jose Tevar’s lighting pulses and flickers to the beats of Richard Hammarton’s sound design
JN Benjamin, The Stage 09/09/2019

All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

... Their show is a raucous celebration that reminds me of the gigs I used to go to in my youth, and brings back all the happy memories of losing myself...
Charlie Wilks, MyTheatreMates.com 07/11/2018

One Life Stand

Vibrant lighting design floods the floor with purples, oranges, blues and greens. The whole show is absorbed with colour, in a city of loneliness where everyone is terrified of the dark. ★★★★
Joseph Winer, A Younger Theatre 13/08/2018
Few shows have captured the conflicting emotions evoked by dating apps and social media. None has done it as stylishly as this. ★★★★
Fergus Morgan, The Stage 06/08/2018

Blackthorn

All cast and creatives are to be commended on such a tight blend of performance, soundscape, lighting and direction
Joanna Matthews, Fringe Review 14/08/2018
