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." The Public Review (read full review)
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." Stuart Robinson Yorkshire Evening Post
"Ben Richards sets many female hearts fluttering as the show's leading character Sky Masterson. Richards has one of those voices that brings you out in goosepimples and his duet with Louise Dearman is one of those duets you wish could go on forever." Rick Bowen Manchester Community News.
"Ben Richards' performance as Sky Masterson was like a masterclass on 'how to' for an all singing/dancing musical male lead." Lorna Doran icWales
"One man who does have it all is the delightful Ben Richards as Sky Masterson. Once you see past his chiseled exterior you appreciate that despite appearances in the biog classic Holby City and the not quite RSC Footballers' Wives, Richrds shows signs of musical theatre training and natural talent. " Amy Stackhouse Theatre in Wales
