The Reviews Hub has posted an article about Love’s Labours Lost and Much Ado About Nothing.

“Along the way Jamie Newall as Lord Boyet, a suave equerry to the princess and Steven Pacey, the verbose schoolmaster Holofernes, give particularly memorable performances.”

Reviews that specifically mention Steven Pacey

DATE SOURCE REVIEWER STAR RATING
27 April 2016 The Guardian Michael Billington Not rated

“Steven Pacey is also excellent as Henry, endowing the character with a buttoned-up, quietly chivalric decency.”

 

DATE SOURCE REVIEWER STAR RATING
27 April 2016 The Telegraph Dominic Cavendish ****

“…Steven Pacey’s thoroughly (to the point of dully) decent Henry about to undergo an invasive police examination in a Turkish jail-house. “It’s at times like this that one wonders: how did I get here?” this retired bank manager asks, in the first of many time-freezing asides to the audience.”

 

DATE SOURCE REVIEWER STAR RATING
27 April 2016 The Stage Tim Bano ***

“…endearing lead performances from Patricia Hodge and Steven Pacey”

 

DATE SOURCE REVIEWER STAR RATING
27 April 2016 Evening Standard Fiona Mountford **

“Pacey has a certain put-upon charm…”

 

DATE SOURCE REVIEWER STAR RATING
27 April 2016 The Arts Desk Bella Todd Not Rated

“Steven Pacey’s Henry has a loose-limbed, rather boyish physicality that allows him more easily to let go. He is never quite as straight as the beige-cardigan-over-pinstripes combo would have him appear. He also brings a sympathetic tenderness to the iffy relationship with teenage hippy Tooley (Haley Flaherty), though this doesn’t stop several members of the audience recoiling in shock when they kiss.”

 

DATE SOURCE REVIEWER STAR RATING
29 April 2016 What’s On Stage Maxwell Cooter ***

“Steven Pacey…does excellently in conveying both the strait-laced demeanour of a middle-aged, middle-class Englishman while showing flashes of steel beneath.”
