"Jamie Platt's lighting design becomes fundamental in the separation of their headspaces. He plays with warm and cold hues, with a moving amalgamation of the two in "Goodbye Until Tomorrow / I Could Never Rescue You"."

Cindy Marcolina - BroadwayWorld - 05/03/2020

"Jamie Platt's lighting is an especially enjoyable element of this musical, with contrast and darkness being used extremely well. A particularly effective moment is when the sun rises and the space is gradually transformed from a blue tinge to a warm orange."

Olivia Mitchell - Rewrite This Story - 04/03/2020

"Jamie Platt’s lighting reflects the timbre of each moment with prescience; there is not a single weak link in the production."

Samuel Nicholls - A Younger Theatre - 08/03/2020

"Speaking of unity, the lighting, sound and set design work beautifully together thanks to the bold choices of Jamie Platt, Adam Fisher and Lee Newby respectively."

Caroline Cronin - BroadwayWorld - 06/10/2020

"Jamie Platt’s lighting of melancholy blues and warm oranges gently guide the audience through the conflicting narrative."

Staff Reporter - Southwark News - 09/10/2020

"More effective is the illuminated ‘L5Y’ above the stage – appropriate for two people who dream of seeing their name in lights."

Marianka Swain - The Arts Desk - 05/03/2020

"Jamie Platt's lighting tells a story of its own, moving from misty blues to the bright orange of a regretful morning."

Daniella Harrison - WhatsOnStage - 05/03/2020

"Modulations of lighting further accentuate the metamorphosis of the heart – the way, bit by bit, we stop singing from the same hymn sheet, or realise we never quite were."

Dominic Cavendish - The Telegraph - 06/10/2020

"Lighting by Jamie Platt helps to further bring the characters and their dilemmas to life."

Musical Manda - Musical Manda - 04/03/2020

"Lee Newby’s simple striking set is elegant and underplayed... Likewise, Jamie Platt’s lighting plots are equally and as imaginatively, effective."
