“Stunning lighting from Jamie Platt.”
"Colourful lighting changes by designer Jamie Platt provoke emotional mood swings"
Marina Holmes Smith - West End Best Friend - 28/10/2023
"To heighten the moods further, Lighting Designer Jamie Platt frequently bathes areas in warm amber but contrasts with profile spots to give a concert effect, reminding us of how the songs might be heard in another setting. His eight strings of hanging bare-bulb lights similarly brighten and dim for effect."
Richard Beck - Broadway Baby - 27/10/2023
"Lighting design by Jamie Platt adds atmosphere, particularly in the later scenes where Daniel’s mental health crisis and its toll on Ria’s own mental health come to a head, with frenetic lighting changes often used to underscore the intense emotion playing out on stage."
Julie - Adventures in Theatreland - 25/10/2023
"Jamie Platt, Lighting Designer, has done a great job throughout the piece, using strobes, colours and spotlights to reflect at different times rollicking emotional turbulence and the gentle, slowly intensifying glow of a long-awaited sunrise."
Rosie Thomas - The Spy in the Stalls - 25/10/2023
