Certainly the best show so far this year.
- Daily Mail

This production is a work of rare mission and artistic merit
- Daily Mail

At the moment the end came, a gust of wind blew across Regent’s Park and it was as if the trees themselves were sighing
- Daily Mail

Declan Bennett is superb as Christ…gripped by the daunting nature of his character’s destiny
- Daily Mail

A perfect cocktail of gritty drama and camp splendour
- Culture Whisper

Every single member of the London-styled cast is spectacular
- Culture Whisper

A gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly musical
- The Guardian

Wit, lyricism and satirical bite abound in this dramatic revival of the classic rock opera with a first-rate cast
- The Guardian

Tyrone Huntley is brilliant as Judas, a young fanatic who is watchful and isolated right from the start, Bennett’s restrained Jesus has an unforced charisma, and Anoushka Lucas is a soulful Mary Magdalene
- The Guardian

An unexpected and considerable pleasure that really rocks
- The Guardian

A mass delirium of amplified agony and ecstasy sets in, as the beautifully lit spectacle of our bloodied saviour in his death-throes combines with the counterpointed uplift of the title number
- Daily Telegraph

Each song is sung with such feeling that the soul of the piece, so volatile in tempo, comes roaring through
- Daily Telegraph

Sprinkling of genius sends stylish Superstar soaring
- Evening Standard

Timothy Sheader offers some of the most stylish direction I’ve seen all year, sculpting each segment into something distinct, vivid and compelling
- Evening Standard

Timothy Sheader caps a fine season with an excellent production
- Andrzej Lukowski

Both ruggedly masculine and flamboyantly fabulous
- Andrzej Lukowski

The real find is relative newcomer (Tyrone) Huntley as Judas: his soulful howl is the most electrifying instrument in this feverishly full throttle resurrection of a classic show
- Andrzej Lukowski

A gritty new Jesus Christ Superstar that might just be the finest musical this venue has yet produced
- Alexandra Coghlan - The Arts Desk

Quietly cool and convincingly contemporary
