Reviews for Jade’s performance:
‘Jade Anouka – as captivating as a kick-boxing Hotspur as she is as Ariel – makes each word sound like fresh-minted street poetry’ ✭✭✭✭✭ The Guardian
'Jade Anouka also crackles across all three productions: a startling, heart-catchingly young Mark Antony; a Hotspur springing around the stage as if she had helium in her heels; an Ariel who sizzles as she beatboxes, and melts into Where the Bee Sucks.' ✭✭✭✭✭ The Observer
‘The production is full of delights – especially Jade Anouka’s streetwise, red-wedged Ariel… ’ - ✭✭✭✭✭ The Independent
‘Jade Anouka makes Mark Antony a charismatic manipulator, Hotspur a dashing brawler and Ariel a gentle spirit’ ✭✭✭✭✭ WhatsOnStage
‘Walter aside, the standout in a strong cast is Jade Anouka, a lithe and authoritative Ariel’ ✭✭✭✭✭ Evening Standard
