"The most captivating performance was undoubtedly provided by Sheetal Kapoor’s Ariel, whose bewitching grace supplied food for thought as well as a feast for the eyes. The most accurate word to describe Kapoor’s portrayal would be to say ‘chimerical’ – a cosmic clash of sinister, snake-like qualities aroused through her willowy physicality in order to heighten her haunting presence, in contrast with bursts of immaturity and innocence that evokes sympathy for his underlying vulnerability. Kapoor really evokes the questions surrounding power struggles within The Tempest, for although Ariel seems the obvious puppet master that orchestrates the illusion, the simple final gesture of kissing Prospero on the cheek provides a conclusive stab of pathos in terms of wanting to achieve both praise and affection – a sensation that more can relate than they may care to admit."

"As you might expect from Get Over It Productions (in their ninth Camden Fringe appearance), the cast are excellent. Sheetal Kapoor, in particular, gives a mischievous, subtly physical and unearthly performance as Ariel, her long elegant arms always moving and swaying, as insubstantial as air."
