Reviews

  • At the heart of the cast was Andrew Shore – as convincing a Fat Knight, both physically and vocally, as any I have seen or heard.

    Culture The Times
  • Rihm's Jakob Lenz at Hampstead Theatre

    Andrew Shore’s performance as Lenz is outstanding… the emotional range of Lenz shows off Shore’s versatile voice and deft interpretation. From belting out the final reiterations of “logical” to employing a beautiful and fragile falsetto that conveys Lenz both as a pitiful character and shows a scary, sinister depth to his mental deterioration – Shore presents a complex and sympathetic character.
