2013The standout feature of this game is the voice acting... Sam Yao is beautifully played by Philip Nightingale.popmatters.com
2013The cast place their stamp on the complex bonds and rivalries that dog the Grandets... powerful yet frequently subtle drama.
Nick Awde, The Stage
ed.thestage.co.uk
2013This play is beautifully performed, especially by Philip Nightingale (John) and Adele Keating (Lisa).
What's On Stage
whatsonstage.com
2013The acting in the Door is first rate; Philip Nightingale portrays John’s neuroticism mixed with denial with passion.
Female Arts
femalearts.com
2013Nightingale grounds the reality of the play, exhibiting weariness, yet having sufficient energy to voice his frustration.
Everything Theatre

2013The cast of five provide wonderful insight into this really rather unnerving subject.
Alex Foott, West End Wilma

2013This adaptation of Balzac's sharp-edged love story is like an undisturbed afternoon spent engrossed in a great novel.
Libby Purves, The Times
thetimes.co.uk
2013Intensely pained and intensely normal, a very empathetic character portrayal.Electrically charged performances that have your hair stand on end.

    "The acting in the Door is first rate; Philip Nightingale portrays John’s neuroticism mixed with denial with passion."

    (Female Arts for The Door at The Park Theatre)

    "The standout feature of this game for obvious reasons is the voice acting... after just a few missions, I became inordinately attached to the pleasing lilt of Sam Yao beautifully played by Philip Nightingale."

    (Pop Matters for Zombies, Run!)

    "Iago, an impressive Philip Nightingale, was a shifty, sinister figure, a subtle villain superbly suggested in voice and manner"

    (Public Reviews for Othello)

    "Excellent performance... moving and nuanced" (Remotegoat for Grand Guignol)

    "A style that is both unpretentious and unaffected... a hard act to follow" (The Stage for Mountview Acting Showcase September 2010 at The Criterion)
