REVIEWS FOR LAST YEAR'S GREAT GATSBY MUSICAL 2012:
“…A well-executed, affecting and stylish production. Composer Joe Evans's music and lyrics evoke the decadent rush of the jazz era and its seedy underbelly. Sultry refrains pulse in the background as secrets are revealed that prove disastrous.." Time Out SHOW OF THE WEEK
“… It has both style and heart…” Evening Standard
"… Linnie Reedman’s production radiates bitter-sweet charm…" Metro
“…A slick and sumptuous production. Evans effortlessly writes a score that could have been plucked from the 1920’s itself. An acute knowledge of the genre has resulted in a highly lyrical and lively score, complete with some soaring and heartbreaking melodies that heighten the intense emotions of the story…” What’s Peen Seen Magazine (FOUR STARS ****)
