"A terrific revival" - Michael Riedel, New York Post"

Morgan Large's design is..a masterpiece of delicious kitsch" - THE MAIL

"this is a dream of a production"

"spectacular staging" - MARK SHENTON, LONDON THEATRE

"Morgan Large (who has been carving out a name for himself over the past few years in a succession of wonderfully accomplished projects that started small and have rapidly got larger and larger) is here employed to employ his visual genius on the gargantuan stage of the Palladium.  He does so with an intellectual rigour, panache and sense of fun that stimulates all levels of your mind and senses, while remaining – even at its most opulent – as simple and innocent as possible." - BRITISHTHEATRE.COM

  

"The design sort of builds from nothing; at the start it’s a couple of sheets hung up by the corners to look like sand dunes. By the interval, we’ve got 10ft tall, gold-plated, guitar-playing sphinxes – the power of the children’s imagination" - THE STAGE

"Large treats the stage like a playground for the biggest game of dress-up in the world. And obviously there are the costumes – especially a gorgeously intricate dreamcoat" - THE STAGE

 

 

  

"Their bodies gleam, small and insignificant against the monumental rock in Morgan Large’s superb design"

  - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

"Morgan Large’s set is a revelation" - British Theatre Guide

"The Wonderland set designed by Morgan Large is a wonder in itself" - East Midland's Theatre *****

"Designer Morgan Large has created an impressively authentic coalface" -Pat Ashworth, The Stage

 "Morgan Large's vast coal face conjures the awesome scale of the black voids beneath"  -What'sOnStage.com ****

"The visual style of the show is predicated by a gloriously sumptuous stage design by the ingenious Morgan Large" - BritishTheatre.com

 

"The director exploits his claustrophobic stage as a place of mystery and fear, thanks in no small measure to Morgan Large's elegant conceal/reveal designs" -WhatsOnStage

"Beautifully designed by Morgan Large" - Mark Shenton

​"Morgan Large’s pared-back designs whisk us efficiently through a variety of dark, lowering locales." - Fiona Montford , Evening Standard

"Southerland’s production is as strong as his reputation now demands...a set with sliding panels that allows characters to come on and off unnoticed, the 19th century really comes alive in this production; it’s all gothic chill and thick mist." - Tim Bano, The Stage
