THRILL ME The Leopold & Loeb story

Paul Glaser, the director, ... creates a credible performance through the use of nuanced lighting by Steve Lowe, several strong visual props and compelling theatrical performances by the two leads.
Laura-Jane Foley, London Theatre 13/01/2016
... the stage and lighting are both remarkably simple, adding to the rawness and intensity of the evening.
Danny Coleman-Cooke, British Theatre.com 13/01/2016

The Mikado

...designer Christopher Hone, together with Steve Lowe's clever use of lighting ... transport the audience to the heart of a golf-club trapped in its own anachonistic pomposity.
Tom Taylor, Fringe Review 22/02/2013

Trojan Women

James Farrell's brisk direction cranks up the tension while Steve Lowe's stark lighting works well with the swells and stops of Max Pappenheim's claustrophobic soundtrack.
Sheila Cornelius, remotegoat 18/01/2013

After the Turn

Steve Lowe delivers strong lighting.
Skye Crawford, Fringe Review 17/02/2012

Waxing Lyrical

“The Enlightenment replaced by dehumanising bloodshed is wonderfully characterised by Steve Lowe’s use of half light and candlelight. We see the teenage Marie hover outside the candlelit dining room hosting Rousseau, Voltaire and Benjamin Franklin; she basks in the glow of Versailles and stumbles in the darkness of the Revolution with an outline of the guillotine projected on the ground.”
Julia Rank, Exeunt Magazine 25/11/2011
“Clive Derbyshire’s imaginative sound design and Steve Lowe’s clever lighting complete an informative, atmospheric and truly memorable theatrical experience.”
Helen Macdonald, WhatsOnStage 25/11/2011
“...a production efficiently directed by Gillian Lynne, with excellent and imaginative lighting by Steve Lowe, creating a persuasive world within a world”
