Eddy | Greek | Mark Anthony Turnage

Arcola Theatre

Dir: Jonathan Moore

Cond: Tim Anderson

© 2018 Lidia Crisafulli

"Edmund Danon gave a blinder of a performance as Eddy, aggressive and visceral, but not devoid of nobility"

Opera Magazine

"The four singers perform as if possessed ... Edmund Danon’s Eddy is a ball of malevolent energy, his fate as cathartic as any ancient Greek tragedy."

★★★★ Evening Standard

"Danon channels Mark Strong in this central role, aggressive, head-shaven and vulnerable..."

★★★★ What's on Stage

"The singers make the most of a small stage with their sheer physicality ...  Edmund Danon thrives as Eddy."

★★★★ The Stage

"Danon's twitchy intensity is magnetic from his first altercation"

Times Literary Supplement

"Lithe with physical menace as a young hoodlum, gracefully tense as an older, successful man ... Edmund Danon’s Eddy is spot on: his London accent perfect, his baritone already richly tender ... he seems born for this part, sliding from speech to song with confident command"

★★★★★ Theatre Cat

"He’s full of macho angst, ever-ready for a fight and Danon emits a palpable menace for much of the first Act. But, there’s more underneath, and we see Eddy’s struggle to find his place..."

★★★★ The Reviews Hub

"Wonderfully sung and acted here by an outstanding cast led by Edmund Danon as the hapless Eddy, there's plenty of drama sitting alongside Mark-Anthony Turnage's hypnotically edgy score."

★★★★★ Actdrop


"As Eddy (Oedipus), Edmund Danon is completely in charge of the role’s heady mix of confrontation, violence, vulnerability and visionary aspiration, on the back of powerful singing, admirable diction and outstanding physical agility."

★★★ Classical Source

"Edmund Danon's lithe and febrile presence belies his sonorous baritone while perfectly embodying Eddy's restless energy."

★★★★ Broadway World
