What did the critics think of The Moderate Soprano?


After resounding success at London's Hampstead Theatre, David Hare's new play, The Moderate Soprano opened at its new West End Home, the Duke Of York's Theatre last night.


Opening to quite positive reviews, with The Guardian calling it 'a rich, funny, touching play' and The Upcoming saying 'The tight and polished production owes as much to individual performances as to extremely capable directing - with Jeremy Herrin firmly at the helm, allowing the cast of strong characters to weave their way through the playwright’s recitatives and arias.'


The Evening Standard praised the leading characters saying that 'Allam is, as ever, a master of the dry one-liner and there’s lovely work from Carroll as a skilled peacemaker for her occasionally irascible spouse.'


The Moderate Soprano runs at the Duke of York's Theatre until June 30.
