Alex Tour 2008

Daily Mail
"Just like the cartoon it’s an ingenious little show …you couldn’t wish for a better Alex than Robert Bathurst, who is a delightfully loveable toad…. this is a market leader in the West End's FTSE 100"

Evening Standard
Four Stars
“Bathurst is dream casting as Alex, the City high flier who loves his work as long as it's someone else doing it. Director Phelim McDermott has opted for a slick mixture of animation and live action….Bathurst's smoothy-chops charm holds everything together wonderfully.”

The Independent
"Bathurst has perfect pitch as this genially snooty, weak operator… The banking community were solidly represented at premiere of Alex and I should imagine that they will turn up in droves during the run. What could be nicer? Seventy-five minutes of having your values, psychology and foibles genially mocked, with loads of time afterwards to sink a few bottles of Bolly."

Time Out
“It is flawless comedy. Bathurst delivers his stream of expertly sculpted, wincingly accurate gags with unflagging, effortless panache”

The Observer
“Robert Bathurst was born to play the City's most famous investment banker…. Phelim McDermott's playful direction locates the best comedy in Bathurst's interaction with his animated colleagues….This production certainly reinvigorates the Eighties throwback for a new generation.”
