Reviews for The Hunt at the Almeida

Justin Salinger and Poppy Miller as the girl’s parents vividly portray a couple torn between their long-term attachment to Lucas and refusal to believe their daughter is lying.” The Guardian

“As Clara’s parents, Poppy Miller is excellent as Mikala, matched by Justin Salinger’s Theo, both crushed with anguish that their best friend could do something like that.” British Theatre

“Everyone is excellent, including Michele Austin as the well-meaning teacher and Poppy Miller as Mikala, Clara’s chaotic mother.” What’s on Stage

“Her parents are stunning played by Justin Salinger and Poppy Miller, vacillating between blind fury and their own doubts.” London Theatre

  • Cursed Child is a marvel, a shape-shifting play that effortlessly incorporates music and choreographed movement, classic storytelling and fresh perspectives, a look that incorporates World War II-era Britain and Victorian spiritualism with Hollywood’s latest flash.” Deadline
  • “One of the most touching parts of the show was watching the intense reaction of the audience to their favorite characters. Our fellow theater-goers burst into rapturous applause at the appearance of Harry, and Hagrid, and Hermione (and a few others I won’t reveal)”The Daily Beast
