The Stage
"...The large cast is headed by Samuel West whose Faustus is extremely effective and who turns from a frustrated academic to selling his soul yet exhibits a powerful underlying belief in God..."

"...Sam West as Doctor Faustus is on stage all evening and gives an excellent performance. This is complimented by the outstanding Michael Feast as Mephistopheles..."

Soton Echo
"...West is superb in the title role as he battles with his tormentors and his own conscience..."

The Times
"...Notable acting, the swirl of the crowd and an astonishing setting make this occasion a triumph."

Sunday Telegraph
"...There are also admirable performances from Samuel West as Faustus and Michael Feast as Mephistopheles..."
