As You Like It 2014
The Public Reviews: “Nicola Foxfield generates an abundance of warmth and wit, and combines these qualities with an admirable wilfulness to produce a perfect Rosalind.”
Everything Theatre: “Nicola Foxfield cultivates a level of chemistry with every player, and easily brings the infamously wordy sequences of Shakespeare down to earth.”
Treasure Island 2013
The Stage: “Nicola Foxfield’s expert interaction with the audience is very watchable”
The Tempest 2013
West End Wilma: “Ariel, a wonderfully animated Nicola Foxfield”
The Londonist: “There was also a lovely musical element to the play, with the actors banging their own drums, casting ‘spells’ with eerily held notes and Ariel (played by Nicola Foxfield) singing ditties with a wonderful, piercing voice.”
The Stage: “Nicola Foxfield, superb visually and vocally as Prince Charming”
The Coventry Telegraph: “and Prince Charming (Nicola Foxfield), both of whom show class and quality in their roles”
Cherwell Review: “…a sympathetic and selective re-imagining of the work”
Remote Goat Review: “Simplistically clever and slick storytelling….I would mention in particular Glenys Leigh McIntyre, whose physicality is excellent, and Nicola Foxfields’ beautifully haunting voice, and superb comic timing”
Dr Genevieve Lively: “Fantastic… the writing and the performances were exceptionally fine and beautifully Ovidian in the blending of pathos/bathos, horror/comedy, originality/allusion.”
Audience Member Jerry Cowhig: “The jumps… from comedy to horror were especially well done, and seeing the gruesome episodes through the antics of schoolgirls made them very shivery. If this show had been on the Edinburgh fringe… it would have been one of the most memorable of any year.”
Seconds Out 2010
Sardines Review : “knockout perforance … the very impressive Nicola Foxfield”
Kentish Times Review: “Nicola Foxfield … is well cast and sings Damn The Man and Freddie with passion and credibility”
The Stage Review: “Nicola Foxfield, who’s a dashing Prince Charming and sings well”
Whats On Stage Review: “Naomi Slater and Nicola Foxfield make charismatic and attractive principals”
