"At the forefront of the revival in impro, Grand Theft recalls the exuberant forays of Not Only But Also or Beyond The Fringe."
William Cook, The Guardian
"A rumbustious night out"
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
"A unique brand of extreme theatre - Grand Theft are always entertaining!"
"These guys are great, enthusiastic, musical and most importantly funny."
