Performance Details - Two Gentlemen of Verona
Thacker/Keegan, Royal Shakespeare Company, April 1991
"[Thacker] has set it among the Bright Young Things of the Thirties, a world of co-respondant shoes, tennis togs, pencil moustaches and an agreeable spot of lunchington on the lawn. There's a nifty little band on stage and a singer (Hilary Cromie) who crones her way through a wonderful selection of romantic hits by the likes of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and the Gershwins." Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph 19.4.91
