"Understanding the Globe's dynamic, Dominic Dromgoole's revival, opening the summer season, simply harnesses our imaginations. The costumes are plausible period affairs. There's some gilded scaffolding. Backcloths bear stylish coats of arms. Conventional, perhaps, but it works a treat, and the pacing is superb..." ~ Dominic Cavendish, "A rousing call to arms", Daily Telegraph, 14 June 2012
"Of the supporting players, Olivia Ross makes an entrancing Princess of France and reveals a wonderful gift for comedy as she tries to help Henry master the Gallic language. She has a seductive Gallic accent, which I have to say jars with David Hargreaves, as a rather doddery King of France, and Kurt Egyiawan's underpowered Dauphin. They don't make even the limpest stamp at being at all French." ~ Tim Walker, "A regal performance", Sunday Telegraph, 17 June 2012
