"An exceptional production, you’d be mad to miss it!" London Theatre 1 Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"We wouldn’t be surprised if Greenwich doesn’t retain its crown as the country’s best panto by season’s end." Monstagigz Review⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Both sound, lighting and even the smell is absolutely top class. It is truly a sensory experience of high calibre. It is sensory experience and one's own option for personal empathy in the piece that makes this show, I think, works much better than so many other "normal" theatre. It is hard to describe-it must be experienced. (Translated from Danish Review)
"Light and Sound from Jack Weir and Mike Woods ...striking and moody .. balance spot on between visual and emotional impact." Views From The Gods
"Walls of prison bars are moved in sync, between hands, partnered with music and lighting to create a brooding and dangerous atmosphere." A Younger Theatre
"Excellent Sound Design" : Musical Theatre Review
"Beautifully Designed .... Exceptional Production Values" The Stage.
2 days showcasing contemporary British musical theatre - "Sound designers/operators ... Mike Woods & George Lumkin were brilliant; highly recommend" James Hadley - Executive Director - Musical Theatre Network
Accurate programming of the sound system, and calculated speaker placement enabled each actor's voice to appear to come from their exact position on the stage whether stationary or moving and the amplification to be imperceptible.
"Mac delivers a deceptively powerful light tenor with a stupendous belt that suits the character perfectly, and thanks to some great sound balance from Mike Woods, reverberates around both floors of the well-appointed Milton Court." ★ ★ ★ ★ MusicalTheatre.com
I created a Soundscape to set the scene and era and link between to 2 plays and used live and recorded sound effects together to increase audience immersion. "The personal abilities on stage, and the competence levels of everyone else working unseen, were of the highest order. This is possibly the best theatrical experience I have ever had."
