Darren Benedict in the critically acclaimed Top Hat

Darren Benedict shined as Horace Hardwick opposite Strictly’s Joanne Clifton in the 2017/18 production of Top Hat, Upstairs At The Gatehouse.

The show was a sell out, receiving nine ★★★★★ reviews. It was also nominated for 4 ‘Offie, 2018’ awards and won ‘Best Choreography’.

“Darren Benedict, in the Edward Everett-Horton part of Horace Hardwick, is chirpy and neurotic, with gleefully apt timing, letting his innumerable unwitting one-liners fall exactly where they will cause most mirth.”
