And the two leads are outstanding...Fra Fee, of Northern Irish origin, also brings to Candide a fresh face, a strong voice and the right reckless faith in the world’s goodness.
— Michael Billington (The Guardian)
Fee….is a star in the making, seen recently in the film version of Les Miserables, so it’s good to see him returning to the theatre so quickly (in a Man of No Importance). He also proves equally adept on accordion, piano and flute, among the company of actor-musicians.
— Mark Shenton (The Stage)
Fra Fee as Philip Ashley does most of the heavy lifting in My Cousin Rachel. Rarely offstage during the entire two-plus-hour performance, Fee’s stamina is incredible. Without melodrama, he convincingly portrays his character’s appropriately gothic emotional swings and perfectly captures Philip’s tragic flaw of youthful impulsiveness.
— Elizabeth Pandolfi (Charleston City Paper)
Playing the protagonist of this taut drama, Fra Fee portrays Philip’s tormented journey through desire, guilt and suspicion with keen sensitivity and detail. His tour de force performance demonstrates immense emotional range and admirable control
