"Beyond The Gate, a sweet, occasionally deep, compilation of new material … some is gorgeous … staged with simply elegance … Stuart Matthew Price once again proves an invaluable vocal presence & Cath Whitefield is tremendous."
Mark Shenton, The Stage
"Truly excellent ... a feast of imagination and pride in new British composition."
The Audience Club
"If anyone ever doubted the depth and invention of book and song writing talent in this country then an hour spent at ‘Beyond The Gate: An Original Musical Revue’ - will have put them right."
Edward Seckerson, The Independent
"marvelously satisfying revue, for which the songs all take their inspiration from Greek mythology, is gamely performed by David Burt, Stuart Matthew Price, and Cath Whitefield. Highlights include Sutton's comic imagining of what the men might have talked about inside the Trojan Horse, Herbert's haunting Kate Bush-like musical soliloquy, ‘Casandra's Lament’, and Stilgoe's ‘It's Not About Him’, which could be sung by any of the queens of the ancient tales, provided they offered their thoughts in the style of a 1950s cocktail music ballad."
Andy Propst, TheaterMania.com
"Anyone interested in the future (and present) of British musical theatre should take a listen to ‘Beyond the Gate’. Black and Stilgoe are joined by talented newcomers Irvine, Adams, Sutton, Herbert and Price. You may not have heard of them yet, but you will; and here’s a great place to start."
