Standout reviews for Jonathan Tafler in The Crucible

Winterson’s actor, Jonathan Tafler, has received a number of standout reviews for his performance as Judge Danforth in The Crucible. The play, which is currently being shown at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch, has received strong reviews across the board.

“This is an actors’ play, and Eoin Slattery’s John Proctor presents the thrilling charge of a man being true to himself even if it will cost him his life. Jonathan Tafler’s Judge Danforth is no less fully-charged with ill-placed righteousness.”
Mark Shenton, The Stage

“There are occasional problems with audibility among the cast, but none from Jonathan Tafler, who creates a ruthless, roaring vigilante in Judge Danforth.”
Jane Kemp, WhatsOnStage

“I found the performance of Jonathan Tafler, who played Judge Danforth, frustrating, but only because he was so convincing that I found myself wanting to get up on the stage and argue against his witch fearing point of view.”
Andy Wilkin, Hornchurch Life

The Crucible is currently on tour with the Sell a Door Theatre company, and will play at the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch, until Saturday 11th March.
