ANDREW LIPPA IN CONCERT - ST JAMES THEATRE, LONDON

Helping him out on stage are pianist Simon Beck, who takes over when Lippa chooses not to accompany himself, and cellist Hannah Ashenden. Both do a faultless job with the musical support. Lippa also wisely brings in guests in the shape of the wonderful Jenna Russel, Tam Mutu, Willemijn Verkaik, Ashleigh Grey and, best of all, the revelation that is Carrie Hope Fletcher, all of who give winning performances.
19th November 2013 - Musical Theatre Review, Craig Glenday

A duet of Lippa and Tam Mutu in 'This River Between Us' proved to be a masterclass in calm professionalism in retrieving a song when both performers dry.

CHESS THE MUSICAL - PRINCESS OF WALES THEATRE, TORONTO

When all is said and done, it's the emotional solidity of the four leads (Shona White, Tam Mutu, James Fox and Rebecca Lock) that make you feel by the end of the second act that you've had a satisfying evening. Mutu in particular is a real winner, with a clarion call of a voice, the right kind of rumpled good looks and the intensity that could lead revolutions.
2nd October 2011 - Variety, Richard Ouzounian

Mutu is absolutely sensational as Anatoly, belting his final solo and overall exuding a calmness at the centre of an overly busy production.
29th September 2011 - The Globe and Mail, J. Kelly Nestruck

Mutu's voice and the beautiful mane of hair made his presence felt from no matter where he was on stage. During Mutu's rendition of "Anthem", you could hear a pin drop during the long pause when the band stops. I think I even saw a few people stand to applaud after "Anthem".
The Beat Magazine, Lisa DesGroseilliers

Mutu has a rich, strong baritone that makes 'Anthem' into a truly stirring conclusion to Act 1. He possesses the most natural acting style of the cast that insures our empathy with his character.
29th September 2011 - Stage Door, Christopher Hoile

Tam Mutu's Russian defector has the kind of voice that soars superbly in those power ballads like the Act 1 closer, 'Anthem'.

CITY OF ANGELS - DONMAR WAREHOUSE, LONDON

As the brilliantly cast Fraser and Mutu sing for their lives...Mutu gives a sexy, worldly-wise, tough-talking air to Stone and is truly convincing as the flawed detective.
22nd December 2014 - Musical Theatre Review, Lisa Martland

Tam Mutu is a suitably strong-jawed, snarling detective. The Act 1 finale 'You're Nothing Without Me' is a fantastic moment which makes the most of the sleek video design and the vocal talents of Mutu and Fraser, and this alone is enough to make the show worth seeing.
23rd December 2014 - A Younger Theatre, Nancy Netherwood

Fraser and Mutu, both giants of their generation in musical theatre, are flawless as the protagonists inhabiting their parallel worlds.
21st December 2014 - Jonathan Baz

Tam Mutu embodies Stine's dream version of himself as Stone, a bit taller and broader, with matinee idol cleft chin and wavy hair. Masculine actor Mutu is highly believable as the hard-bitten, fast-loving private eye.
18 January 2015 - Simon Parris: Man in Chair

Tam Mutu, an actor born to look bruised and ruggedly handsome.
18th December 2014 - Daily Mail, Quentin Letts

Tam Mutu is so good as noble screw-up Stone that you wanna give him his own detective show
17th December 2014 - Time Out, Andrezej Lukowski

Stone (Tam Mutu, managing miraculously to resemble both Burt Lancaster and Humphrey Bogart), inhabits the black and white 1940's film Stine's writing.
17th December 2014 - Whats On Stage, Michael Coveney

Vamps, ingenues and two-bit broads fawn over Mutu's rugged Hitchcockian hero
17th December 2014 - Variety, Matt Trueman

"Only the floor kept her legs from going on forever" quips Mutu's hearthrob provate eye, with his Burt Lancaster grin.
17th December 2014 - The Independent, Paul Taylor

Stine's fictional alter ego is Stone )the suitably wry and rugged Tam Mutu)
17th December 2014 - London Evening Standard, Henry Hitchings

The performances are also excellent. Hadley Fraser's harassed Stine is ideally matched by the Bogartesque assurances of Tam Mutu's Stone.
17th December 2014 - The Guardian, Michael Billington

Stine has invented a fictional alter ego, a private eye called Stone, played by Tam Mutu, and, sure, he makes a convincing and charismatic tough guy, rumpled and battered, cynical and weary, but still with a heart there somewhere. Mutu even looks a bit like Burt Lancaster, seen through a Scotch mist with your specs off.
28th December 2014 - The Sunday Times, Christopher Hart

 

EAST - LEICESTER HAYMARKET

Craig Conway and Tam Mutu both give starring performances as the scum-of-the earth lads, Les and Mike.

FAUSTUS - NATIONAL TOUR

Here the real life event involves contemporary artists Jake (Rocky Marshall) and Dinos (Tam Mutu) Chapman preparing to recify a collection of valuable Goya etchings, The Disasters of War, by replacing the faces of war victims with those of clowns and puppies. Some loose ends are tied up by the famous mysterious fire at a London art warehouse, but, overall, the pretentiousness of todays art practitioners is put into very sharp focus.
The Northern Echo, Viv Hardwick

Rocky Marshall and Tam Mutu as the brothers give powerful performances and are totally credible in their disdain for our great heritage of fine art.
Exclusive Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Reviews, Ann St.Clair-Stannard

There is something slightly laughable and reductive about the idea that the nearest modern equivalent to Mephistophelean evil and hubris lies in the world of Britart and its controversies. But Goold and Power make a tremendously convincing job of their modern morality play, helped by a trio of terrific performances from Rocky Marshall and Tam Mutu as the brothers, and Claire Lams as a young Afghan film-maker who challenges their world-view.
16th November 2007 - The Scotsman, Joyce McMillan

 

ROMEO AND JULIET - ROYAL SHAKESPEAR THEATRE, STRATFORD-UPON-AVON

It's an extraordinary achievement by any stretch of the imagination, but for Peter Gill, a man in his sixties, not just to reinvigorate, but to reinaugurate Shakespeare's most youthful and hormonally perturbed tragedy is the kind of experience that in England does not lead to awards, but shoul. The casting in itself is a wonder.
9th April 2004 - Independent, Paul Taylor

Tam Mutu's Tybalt is commanding and full of danger.
29th April 2004 - Reviews Gate, Rod Dungate
