“I saw a wonderful cast of stellar West End talent bringing their hearts, souls and glorious voices
to a one-night charity benefit concert performance of musical Children Of Eden.” – THE STAGE


“Dearman was the highlight of the evening – gorgeous vocals, delicate acting and a fantastic frock made for a compelling performance. Anton Stephans had the challenging task of playing God, which he did beautifully, making his Creator a very human Father.” – BROADWAYWORLD


“The charity gala showed off some of the west end’s best talent, with the wonderful cast including Louise Dearman, Oliver Thornton and a guest performance from Kerry Ellis. In addition there was a choir made up of 36 professionals and theatre students who sounded beautiful and added a softness to some of the songs. The whole night was a brilliant one in aid of a fantastic charity and hopefully helped raise a lot of money.” – BACKSTAGE PASS
