    "Lightbody has always been a disarming worker of wonders; his manner is as masterful as his magic. In UNIQUE WONDERS, he excels himself. Whether he is working with cards or coins, he is captivating from start to finish, the meticulous eye of director Tara Notcutt an active and valuable collaborator in his work."

    "I knew it would be all right when I heard one 14-year-old gasp "What?!" and the other hiss "No way!" There's nothing more splendid than sitting wide-eyed in the presence of the obviously impossible: it makes an adult feel like a kid. Even better, it makes a teenager feel like a kid too."

  • Tue 15th Aug 2017 Weekend Special

    "[Stuart Lightbody] is warm and self-deprecating in just the right amounts. And he is so, so neat and precise that he makes every single move a dance. His cards flow from his hands. His glances are so precise and intended we never look in the wrong place, and he has an absolute gift when handling each member of the audience; especially those he brings onto stage. He is also very, very funny in a totally old fashioned and delicious way."
