"The crackle of the piece comes from Ratcliffe’s snappy and charismatic delivery. The fact he’s so inherently likeable makes the deception feel all the worse."
- The Stage on VELVET

"Honest and painfully real in its portrayal... the play comes alive with the actor's impressive body language, tackling narcissism and the trappings of wanting an acting career."

- Broadway World on VELVET

"Of the men, Tom Ratcliffe’s volatile JC is genuinely frightening, switching from persuasive charmer to psychopath in a flash."

- The Stage on Sket

"The whole cast is outstanding, particularly Tessie Orange-Turner as Tamika and Tom Ratcliffe as JC, who are not only utterly believable but deliver the most touching moments of the evening."

- A Younger Theatre on Sket

"This made some of the stories they told almost heartbreaking to hear. This was particularly true with the young ‘twink’ of the group ‘R’ played extremely well by Tom Ratcliffe, and there were times when his tales almost reduced me to tears."

- LondonTheatre1 on 5 Guys Chillin'
