Olivier Nominated for Best Costume Design

"Frankie Bradshaw’s gently revolving design provides a sure sense of place. All aspects of the production are in perfect harmony; this is quite the best evening I have spent at the National in a long time.” ***** iNews
"Frankie Bradshaw’s tenement-block design is busy with multiple lives – several rooms and the street always on show. Bradshaw’s hand is also important in the tremendous clothes... I have rarely seen costumes used so expressively. They are the fabric equivalent of the songs that break out beautifully through the evening. **** Observer

"The set and costume design by Frankie Bradshaw are gorgeous." **** The Stage

"Frankie Bradshaw's immaculate set, mounted on a revolve, becomes almost a character in its own right" ***Times
