"The scenes with the three witches are suitably unsettling and other worldly, these weird wailing sisters’ pale faces potent to behold."
"Eve Best's directorial debut is a cracking – at times, terrifying – production of Macbeth..."
"...by far the most spiritedly rib-tickling version of this blackest of tragedies that one has ever seen."
"The chief virtue of the production is its clarity"
THE EVENING STANDARD
"..this is a powerful and tense production which fits the bill nicely for the mid point in this year's Globe season."
"Caster Semenya, the South African runner makes an appearance, too, beautifully played by Moyo Akandé, who puts her 6ft stature to great advantage, towering above the ignorant doctor trying to force her to be gender tested. “I just want to run”, she says. Gender is irrelevant here."
"There’s also a good scene of theatrical engagement and rare clarity where South African athlete Caster Semenya (Moyo Akande) is interrogated about her gender by a doctor."
"...it's hard not to like The Lightning Child. The piece energises the audience with its confrontational cheek and revealing lurches of tone, aided by some winningly droll performances."
"a completely terrifying Moyo Akandé."
"Moyo Akandé is a wonderfully evil ogress"
THE BIRMINGHAM MAIL
"...its seems almost unfair to single out any of the actors for praise, but Moyo Akandé is fiendishly sinister yet delightfully silly as the ogress"
"Sweet little things," enthuses the queen (Moyo Akandé) about her grandchildren –but it is hunger, not love, that drives her. That's because granny is an ogre, and she wants to gobble them up. She's already eaten her human husband"
"...a power crazy flesh-eating ogress (the beautifully wicked, eternally hungry Moyo Akandé) for a mother. At one point the ogress fancies snacking off her grandchildren and orders a cream sauce to dress the meat."
"Moyo Akandé is fiendishly sinister yet delightfully silly as the ogress"
THE BIRMINGHAM POST
"...an Ogress played so brilliantly by Moyo Akandé with her insatiable appetite to eat humans!"
"Moyo Akandé lights up the stage as the meat-munching, Scottish-sounding Ogress"
"Moyo Akandé plays George, an eight-year-old girl... Akandé is superb, bringing a real sense of a child’s frailty to the role. Roy allows Akande to get right under the notion that skin colour creates difference." THE STAGE
"In a twist that’s fantastical but full of a harrowing reality George (Moyo Akandé) decides her white skin has made her invisible, even to her workaholic mother – so she steals the black skin of a dead child, and disarms the bullies with vivid tales of her “outsider” roots and culture. when George loses both her own, and her assumed skin and is left, exposed, revealing her innermost self: a sheeny-silvery form that is mystical and beautiful like moonbeams." THE HERALD
"...the venom of the snow queen scarily played by Moyo Akandé"
"The arrival of the White Witch brought the stage alive. Moyo Akandé appeared regal, icy and menancing as the White Witch and her costume and make up looked dazzling."
"The songs are performed splendidly well - West End musical standard, individual performances by Moyo Akandé are terrific."
"Moyo Akandé is a certainly excellent White Witch"
"The White Witch was as intimidating as ever with her sharp wit and glamorous costumes"
"Moyo Akandé does her best Grace Jones impersonation as the White Witch but the campness she adds is in keeping with the style of the production and gained her a well deserved round of boos and hisses"
…a typically Drummondesque mix of a pop-culture facade that ushers in some deceptively serious dramatic, philosophical and moral points about politics and what passes for democracy.” THE HERALD
"Another stand-out actor in this bright young cast is Moyo Akandé. She has the looks, height and poise of a supermodel and is as an engaging, charismatic Muzzy."
THE GOOD REVIEW
"Moyo Akandé commands the stage as Muzzy."
"Moyo Akandé’s twinkling statuesque socialite Muzzy is another delight."

"The gathering of witches feels truly malevolent, especially Moyo Akandé as the sinister figure who tries to entice the young boy down from a tree using a snake..." THE REVIEWS HUB
"...Moyo Akande, meanwhile, is the absolute picture of stately queenliness as Hippolyta. Both stand out for the naturalism and clarity of their delivery." THE STAGE

"Jude Akuwudike and Moyo Akandé bring a nice wry twist to Theseus and Hippolyta" THE FINANCIAL TIMES
