From the team that brought you The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy - Tertiary, quandary & quintessential phases:

“Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Radio Show gets a big thumbs up…a fun ride.”

Patrick Marmion, Daily Mail, 15th June, 2012

“It was thrilling to see Hitchhiker’s performed live, especially with members of the original cast. Jones (who was naturally dressed in a dressing gown for the entire show) was fantastic as Dent …A standing ovation ended a show which [Douglas] Adams himself would have surely been proud of.”

Northampton Chronicle & Echo, 16th June, 2012

“…it came as no surprise that the original cast members, with scripts in hand, were warmly greeted when they gathered in front of their microphones … Dirk Maggs… got around the static nature of a radio show performance by having a light show and a screen which helpfully projected each entry from The Hitchhiker’s Guide…this device also provided the unexpectedly moving finale, where a giant image of the late author Douglas Adams was applauded by the cast members in tribute to his great work and his astonishingly fertile imagination.”

Alan Watson, Liverpool Echo, 19th June, 2012

“…an evening of many incidental joys as we are reunited with fine line after fine line…an imaginative and entertaining celebration…”

Dominic Maxwell, The Times, 16th June, 2012

“The show itself is a technical triumph taking every aspect of the show produced so far and placing it firmly in the 21st Century…I’m not going to spoil the story for newcomers to The Guide but suffice to say that this version is perhaps the best that I have witnessed so far.”

Sebastian Gahan, Liverpool-Live, 18th June, 2012

“9/10 – Don’t Panic!”

Alan Weston, Liverpool Echo, 19th June, 2012

“Brilliant show tonight! I brought the next generation and we both loved it.”
“Amazing fun, great performances backed by stunning live music and galaxy-class sound & visual effects.”
“It was really great. The cast were really enthusiastic and the band was spot on. I have been singing the theme tune all the way home. The whole thing was so good, I came home and booked tickets for the Edinburgh date!”
“Last night was zarkingly brilliant. A fitting tribute to the genius of Douglas Adams.”
“We had a great night watching a brilliant show, money well spent on a fun filled family night out.”
“I have been listening to this since I was a baby 28 years ago (I have a very thoughtful Dad) and you have no idea how significant your voices have been in my life. Thanks for an amazing night, me and my Dad are thrilled to bits to have seen you!”
“It was the essence of everything that made me fall in love with the radio show and the books all those years ago, with the added bonus of new ideas well implemented, and a terrific rapport between audience and performers. Magical!”
“I laughed so much my face is hurting today!”
“Brought back so many great memories that I dug out my taped radio series (now on disc!) and began listening all over again!”
