REVIEWS

" ... Graham Hoadly - God's Gift to a lyric writer …"

Vivian Ellis

" … Graham Hoadly, singing with period's unmistakable neighing vibrato, and the buck-toothed Stephen Pacey are wonderfully comic flannelled fools without losing sight of the veiled social criticism that gives the show surprising bite …"

Anthony Masters: The Times

" … 'True To Two' is a cheerful hymn to sexual troilism with a hint of indiscriminate orgy … The beaming household includes two blazered ugly brothers, Graham Hoadly especially noteable for his rubicund vampire impersonation. That honeymoon for four might not be so much innocent fun after all … "

Michael Coveney: Financial Times

" … There is some polished work also from Graham Hoadly … "

Peter Hepple: The Stage

" … The Ugly Sisters become Boring Brothers … of the two, Graham Hoadly, who looks like the much-missed Julian Orchard, has the surer comic touch … "

Ned Sherrin: Plays And Players

" … [Lonnie] Donegan is supported by a strong company. Christina Mattews is a sparky leading lady, and Graham Hoadly very funny as one half of a pair of "ugly" brothers. Keep an ear cocked for his magnificent, trembling singing voice … "

M.D.: Time Out

" … Diana Martin and Graham Hoadly give strong vocal support … in this topically escapist bonne bouche which gets it just right in scale, tempo and chirpiness …"

Antony Thorncroft: Financial Times
