'James is terrific as both Titania & Hippolyta - she speaks the verse with suppleness, and has a real air of authority.' - Time Out.
'A performance of genuine wit and power. James in particular is a knockout as a loud, lovable tornado of change.' -WhatsonStage.
James notably captures Cressida’s lovestruck pragmatism and movingly shows her to be a victim of the machinations of war, of men - Guardian.
Amber James (definitely the staging’s highlight) is clever, stoic and witty – and, one imagines, pretty good at seeing through the warmongering and strutting occurring all around her.' - The Stage.
