    Press Quotes from Reviews:

    "Andrew Venning’s performance as Macbeth is chilling, complex and rich, with an expert handling of verse.....I would highly recommend catching leading man Andrew Venning’s performance, at the very least you can say you saw him before he hit the big time – if there’s any justice in the world that is" - Everything Theatre

    "Andrew Venning played Macbeth extremely well. A man with temptation put in front of him, let’s be honest, not just temptation but a ruddy exciting prophecy and who can resist one of those, and with a wife often denigrating his manliness as she pushes him to risk all to become King. Often alone on the stage soliloquizing with himself but also, and this I really did like, with the audience as though we were a part of him and could assist him in allaying his conscience in the pursuit of his dreams." -London Theatre 1

    "...and Andrew Venning (Young Shepherd) is a young actor to watch" - John Peter, Sunday Times, 13/1/08

    (THE WINTERS TALE)

    "There are some great performances on show, notably that of Andrew Venning as Feste" - Paul Vale, The Stage 24/12/10

    (TWELFTH NIGHT)

    "As the central villain, Flamineo, Andrew Venning is sardonic and slippery; he holds the stage confidently"

    - The Public Reviews 4/12/10

    (THE WHITE DEVIL)

    "The hilarious 'Puss in Boots' figure of Don Armado (Andrew Venning)"

    - Cambridge News 13/7/10

    (LOVES LABOURS LOST)

    "Andrew Venning grabbed my attention from the moment he came on stage, and continued to captivate the audience throughout, with his expressive, heartfelt delivery and physical presence." - Frost Magazine 22/3/12 (ONDINE)

    "Andrew Venning is brilliant as Hans, balancing martial swagger with self-knowledge and Pythonesque awareness of the practical difficulties of dress"

    - Atomies 24/3/12

    (ONDINE)

    "The cast members are completely on board with the tone of the show and Andrew Venning as the flamboyant Mammon is the stand-out performance"

    - Catherine Usher, The Stage 30/3/12

    (THE ALCHEMIST)

    "..but it is Andrew Venning's superb performance as the swaggering, sexually charged Sir Epicure Mammon that's the treat of the evening"

    - whatsonstage.com 2/4/12

    (THE ALCHEMIST)

    "Venning is, frankly, superb. Looking rather sinister - a little like Doctor Who's foe The Master, but maybe that's just the goatee - he delivers the Shakespearean purple prose perfectly. When called upon to do comedy, his exasperation at the characters and the ineffective props is hilarious." -
