Worldwide Press Acclaim for Shylock:

“Armstrong is nothing short of incredible…It is an exceptional piece of theatre. Everyone should see it.”  The Independent on Sunday, London.


“It’s all fascinating, a nimble analysis of the thorny, much-abused character and the great, troublesome play.” The Washington Post.


“It delights, enlightens and dazzles. With a leer, a wink, a shrug, he expresses more than words can say. In a word, brilliant.” Jewish Bulletin of Northern California.


“Shakespeare fans will kneel in homage and raise their arms to shout ‘Hallelujah’.”            The Dominion, Wellington NZ.


“This is a performance which deserves to be sold out. It is theatre for thinking men and women, it is theatre of the imagination, of liberating emotions and, also, of bold thinking.” Kurier, Vienna.


“Gareth Armstrong is magnetic throughout…You need not be Jewish nor and Eng Lit expert to appreciate this: you need only be human.” The List, Edinburgh (5 Stars).


“This is as good as theatre gets…It was undiluted joy and a privilege to watch.”            Liverpool Daily Post.
