Theatre - The Vortex - pre West End tour

* updated 18 February

Sir Peter Hall's production of Noël Coward's The Vortex is currently on a pre-West End tour. Here are nice quotes from reviews about Dan Stevens, who plays Nicky:

Hereford Times
"...a performance from Dan Stevens that brings a convincing intensity to the role..."

The British Theatre Guide
"...[an] emotionally draining and superb performance from Dan Stevens..."

Ledbury Reporter
"...Dan Stevens, who was suitably dashing in the recent BBC adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, is superb, portraying Florence's son Nicky with just the right amount of fragility and, eventually, strength to hope for a better future..."

Wiltshire Times
"...Dan Stevens powerfully portrays the complexities of an emotionally fragile young man..."

BBC Berkshire
"...Stevens creates a Nicky who is loveable and energetic. He instantly wins the audience's empathy..."
