REVIEWS ROUND-UP

STAR RATING The Guardian

“Last year in Chichester I found Philip Prowse’s production of Shaw’s indestructible play coarse and overstated. If it has improved, it is partly because it fits more snugly into a proscenium theatre. But it is also because it has found in Kara Tointon, chiefly famous for EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing, a luminous and refreshing Eliza.”

STAR RATING The Daily Telegraph

“This certainly isn’t a great Pygmalion, and it is sad to witness Everett failing to deliver on the promise of his gilded youth. But even a second-rate Pygmalion is better than no Pygmalion at all.”

STAR RATING The Independent

“Tointon is the real deal as his heroine – beautiful, oozing natural stage presence – and she traces, with terrific aplomb, Eliza’s journey from truculent determination through heartfelt application and stung hurt to mutinous independence.”
