Heaven in Berlin:
"James Meunier brings a spine-tingling supporting performance as the government official"
(Natasha Fonzeka, The Upcoming)
"James Meunier's genial but vicious Stasi official subtly menaces"
(Vicky Ellis, What's Onstage)
" James Meunier also proves his versatility throughout, not least with a marvellous appearance as a particular icon in the show’s most surreal moment: a hilarious, imaginative interlude that briefly transforms the evening into supper-club cabaret."
(Alex Ramon, British Theatre Guide)
"Clifford Anderson, a young writer aspiring to Sidney’s heady heights is played by James Meunier; and very well played it was. The fresh faced actor has an obvious hunger for his craft which translates into a great stage performance. "
The Ghost Train:
" Teddie Deakin, a foppish young man-about-town who bounces about like an untrained Labrador (played faultlessly by James Meunier) "
(Holly Willis, South London Press)
