 "Emma Bailey’s striking designs place us in a world that resembles the Paris of 1968 with a touch of steampunk...The kids are taking over the theatre company Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory." The Guardian ****

"With its 'star is born' central turn and youthful vitality to burn this Romeo and Juliet is a bullseye for Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory." What's On Stage ****

"The decision to fully embrace and perform Romeo and Juliet as a teenager’s play is at the heart of why Shakespeare and the Tobacco Factory’s latest performance is so majestically good." Exeunt Magazine *****

"The vivid 1960s aesthetic running through Emma Bailey’s costume and design reinforces Kalinina’s bold vision of a world on the cusp of huge social and political disorder, bordering on anarchy...a striking production." The Public Reviews ****

"The production sings with originality and leaves us in patient expectation to see what comes next from all concerned." StageTalk Magazine ****
