Love's Labours Lost"Director Ian Judge has won an enviable reputation for putting the fun back into Shakespearean profundities, and he has stamped an impressively definitive style on one of the Bard’s lighter works and turned it into pure delight." - Daily Mail


"Judge makes light of it all with his witty, playful and gorgeously dressed production. Judge is a master showman." - Daily Express


"In Ian Judge’s Oxford circa-1913 production the humane values of the play are projected with great wit and felicity. A delightful production that unlocks the play’s verbal intricacy and generally shows Judge at his most judicious." - The Guardian


"As Ian Judge’s name has become a byword for elegance, eloquence and logic this evening is a huge success and destined to be the hit of the season." - Birmingham Post


"With a little light tampering the sound of music and gorgeous Edwardian scene-setting, Ian Judge has resuscitated Shakespeare’s obscurest comedy to make it young and fun again. The production fairly hums with laughter and happy invention." - Evening Standard


"At the RSC’s annual governor’s meeting, the company’s president, Prince Charles, said that he usually left the theatre feeling more cheerful than when he went in. He’ll probably dance all the way along Waterside and into The Dirty Duck when he comes out of Ian Judge’s exuberant Brideshead Revisited LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST." - The Observer
