This Week at NYT | Press week for the REP Season!

Posted 29 Jul 2023 by Joe Duggan

It's been all about our REP Company this week with two back to back press days! Read all about it below...

REP Season 

This week saw two back to back Press Nights for our NYT REP Season, playing at the Ambassadors Theatre until December. On Tuesday, the National Youth Theatre’s version of Frantic Assembly’s Othello opened to the press. Here's what they thought!

★★★★★ "an outstanding display of talent" - LondonTheatre1

"Shakespeare like you’ve never seen before: gritty, modern, edgy" - OninLondon

The company received a visit from NYT Patron Hugh Bonneville following their matinee performance, and after he came round to stage door to meet the cast after the show. 

On Wednesday, it was the turn of Jekyll and Hyde to take the stage. Evan Placey’s radical reimagining enjoyed its first performances out of preview! Here's what the press thought... 

★★★★ "a joy to behold" - Theatre Weekly

★★★★ “an intense, exciting piece of work” - WhatsonStage

★★★★ "absolutely brilliant" - LondonTheatre1

★★★★ "moments of genius" - Broadway World UK
