And the reviews keep rolling on in:

***** “THRILLING….sexy, full-bloodied and furious. Heart-stoppingly exciting and evisceratingly relevant”” (Metro)

***** “REVELATORY…a new production from Jamie Lloyd that demands our admiration.” (Daily Telegraph)

**** “MUSCULAR. EXPRESSIVE. EXPLOSIVE. The production’s beating heart is Samantha Pauly, who possesses a beguiling blend of butter-wouldn’t-melt charm and sensual guile, a pristine voice with a steel edge, and more than a touch of star quality” (Evening Standard)

**** “Forget everything you know about Evita: this one properly rocks” (Time Out)

**** “Jamie Lloyd’s radical staging strips away all the glamour. What he is left with is the hard sinew and bone of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s full-bloodied music – arguably his best score – and Tim Rice’s sharp, politically astute lyrics” (WhatsOnStage)

**** “Stripped-down, super-sleek, contemporary” (The Arts Desk)

**** “The music is immaculately played. Alan Williams’s orchestra is one of the stars of the evening” (The Times)

**** “Jamie Lloyd’s Evita dazzles with an interpretation that is stylistically groundbreaking. Together Soutra Gilmour (design), Jon Clark (lighting) and Nick Lidster (sound) have created an immersive experience that is utterly sublime” (BroadwayWorld)
