Presse :

"There’s no getting round the awkward fact, though, that Crawford’s best days as a stage-actor are now behind him...Worth a look, then, but not queuing round the block to see." Dominic Cavendish for The Telegraph

"There's no danger of mistaking The Go-Between for a noisy blockbuster but that doesn't signify any shortage of ambition in this enthralling, beautifully textured chamber-musical version of the L P Hartley novel about a boy's loss of innocence during a country house visit in the scorchingly hot summer of 1900." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"It is all done with taste and style. But although the text is shot through with references to Icarus, the story never quite flies because we cannot escape its catastrophic effect on the adult Leo. The novel, as so often, proves a foreign country; they do things differently there." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"The story begins slowly, in silence. You want to scream ‘oh get ON with it!’ Richard Taylor’s music, delivered by an on-stage piano, is frustratingly plinkety-plonk. It sounds like a pastiche of Stephen Sondheim. Slowly, however, this fruit ripens. A surfeit of recitative yields to tight, a capella harmonies." Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

"... there are things to admire in Roger Haines’s production. Michael Crawford is affecting as the grown-up Leo Colston, a husk of a man whose life has been dominated by the letter-carrying events of three hot summer weeks half a century before." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
