    Additional Information

    Reviews:

    For Cole Porter's 'Jubilee' at the Tabard Theatre:

    Noteworthy individual performances are Cooke-Hodgson's comedic Queen, who is funny without being too pantomime dame. WhatsOnStage

    Amy Cooke-Hodgson as the Queen brings humour to the stage. The Stage

    Amy Cooke-Hodgson as the Queen is the stand out performance here. She's funny, engaging and is able to navigate that fine line between truth and pantomime. RemoteGoat

    Splendid comedienne Cooke-Hodgson makes the Queen pivotal to the show's dynamic. She's got a terrific voice, great presence and she's hilarious. ChiswickW4.com

    Cooke-Hodgson's Queen steals the show: her hilarious asides, perfectly raised eyebrows and fascination with swimming keeps the audience well entertained. One Stop Arts

    The Queen, played by Amy Cooke-Hodgson, is a blast of fresh air. Her droll brand of knowing wit brings a maturity and professionalism to the production. ExtraExtra.org

    Special mention for Amy Cooke-Hodgson - her videomatch characters so enjoyably real - believably layered in a range of roles.

    Lindsay Richardson, RemoteGoat for 'Personals the Musical!'

    The evening was comp d in sparkling style by Amy Cooke-Hodgson.

    The Oxford Times for MTO 'Songs from the Shows'

    Special mention should go to Amy Cooke-Hodgson for distilling a true comedy character from the caricature of the bungling police-woman.

    Fringe Report for 'Smell the Musical!' [Improvised]

    This is an intense production, and the cast rises to the challenge. Amy Cooke-Hodgson is excellent as Catherine, projecting dejection and hopelessness with real conviction.
