|'Excellent direction from Chris Loveless... this
musical deserves a bigger stage.'
British Theatre Guide on Tess of the D'Urbervilles

Musical Theatre Review on Tess of the D'Urbervilles
|'A thrilling, bold and wickedly amoral night out
that showcases some of the next wave of musical theatre talent.'
Musical Theatre Review on Bel-Ami
|'Chris Loveless' direction and Anthony Whiteman's
choreography are fluid and imaginative... Most heartening is that their production shows a
clear understanding of what is uniquely possible in the art form of musical theatre.'
The Public Reviews on Bel-Ami
|'An unrelentingly grim experience, but one which
retains a sense of hope in the human spirit. Director Chris Loveless gets the balance just
What's on Stage on Five Kinds of Silence
|'The fluid direction ensures that every member of
the audience is drawn into the intense drama.'
The Public Reviews on Five Kinds of Silence
'Thoughtful, compassionate and fascinating...
a powerful piece of theatre
genuinely moving one moment and darkly funny the next, this is a
great way to round off your Festival day.'

Plays International on Normal
|'This great production.'
(Critics' Choice & Show of the Week) Time Out on Moonshadow
|'Convincing acting, under Chris Loveless' direction, makes us believe in
the agonising tension, hope and despair of life at the margins.'

Plays International on Ray Collins Dies On Stage
|'Crisp direction and therapeutic humour.'
Venue Magazine on On the Edge
|'A musical version of Dracula could have gone
horribly wrong, but the Fallen Angel Theatre Company have managed to pull off an
entertaining evening in this well produced version of the gothic classic... A night of
bloody good fun.'
What's on Stage on Dracula
|'Chris Loveless' staging is much better than merely
acceptable: in fact, it's a fresh, gripping and witty mini-epic.'
