The Bob Van Krap Show

“Matt Devereaux satirises the Vegas-style genre with wicked malice aforethought courtesy of his brilliant caricature ‘Bob Van Krap’. Bob’s schmaltzy patter is hilariously spot on…very highly recommended”.
Manchester Evening News


Brighton Rock (Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch)

“Adapter Matt Devereaux and Bob Carlton have turned Graham Green’s sprawling cinematic novel about the Brighton criminal fraternity and under-class into a taut cinematic piece of theatre.”
The Stage
Song of Singapore (Bolton Octagon Theatre)

“Most the funniest moments of ‘Song of Singapore’ go to Matt Devereaux who even gets laughs for telling people to turn off their mobile phones.”
Entertainment Manchester website

 

The Missionary’s Position

“Pianist and performer Matt Devereaux is dementedly pleased with himself, and hammier than gammon as Davidson’s nemesis, the blustering Major Hammond.”
Time Out – ★★★★ (Critics’ Choice)

“Devereaux also clearly relishes his different roles and creates a likable but authoritative presence as the MC.”
British Theatre Guide

“With Matt Devereaux tightly controlling the enthusiastic players as master of ceremonies (and Cleese-esque militant major / railroading bishop) from the piano, this is a bawdy and engaging fast and furious 90 unbroken minutes.”
What’s On Stage – ★★★★

” It is all tightly controlled by the MC (Matt Devereaux), never getting completely out of hand but verging on the edge of reason.”
Fringe Report

 

 Adolf Hitler- My Part In His Downfall (Bristol Old Vic/National Tour)

“Star of the show though was somewhat more experienced Matt Devereaux as the CO and bumbling MC for the show, Major Chaterjack.”
Behind The Arras

“…the performance I enjoyed was that of the vastly experienced Matt Devereaux as the officer who also acted as MC and Herr Hitler…”

Behind The Arras

“The MC for the military entertainment was Matt Devereaux who displayed a formidable array of dramatic performance skills. A confident ad-libber, Hitler impersonator, musician and plum-voiced CO, he commanded the auditorium from opening disaster to closing collapsing scenery.”

Bristol 24/7

“Was it the British sense of humour that finally saw off Adolf Hitler? This show puts the case, brilliantly.”

The Daily Telegraph – ★★★★★

“Matt Devereaux makes an entertaining batch of officer figures, by dint of playing up the earnestness and letting the material itself lampoon him.”
The Financial Times

 

The Borrowers (Nuffield Theatre, Southampton)

“The majority of the humour in the show came from Matt Devereaux (Crampfurl) and Oliver Hoare (the Boy) having seen Matt in the Nuffield Production of Aladdin which will always be a highlight, did not disappoint.”
The Public Reviews

 

A Christmas Carol (Nuffield Theatre, Southampton)

“Matt Devereaux, who recently performed in ‘The Missionary’s Position’, returns to the Nuffield to play several characters to his usual high standard.”

The Public Reviews – ★★★★★
