Barbican [Off West End]

“Khan’s production is as upstanding... What it lacks in adventure it makes up for in clarity... Simon: fascinating.”

Kate Kellaway (Observer)

“A very Hollywood notion of historical authenticity... so retro-opulent you half expect a thundering chariot, or Elizabeth Taylor”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“The highlight here is Josette Simon’s exotically accented, sexy and, at times, quite bonkers portrayal of the Egyptian queen.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“Khan’s production is competent but uninspired... Interest frequently sags when the titular couple are off stage.”

Michael Arditti (Express)
