ROCK OF AGES "Act one seems a little slow to start, but soon picks up pace with the arrival of Ben Richards as over blown, over sexed, rock god, Stacee Jaxx. Richards owns the stage from that point on, totally convincing as the egotistical front man of rock band Arsenal."
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER "There will never be another Travolta of course but you can tell that Richards isn't simply a replacement for (Adam) Garcia. He's a better singer, even a better dancer and while young Adam played the role for cheeky laughs, Ben gives it a cocky sexiness. With Ben Richards doing such a great job, it'll be staying alive for at least another year."
GUYS AND DOLLS "The real ace in the hole was Ben Richards. Mr Richards is actually sickeningly talented - a wonderful actor and singer who absolutely drips with charisma and is totally on the money as Masterson."
