ABOUT ME

Great actors are great storytellers.

 

I believe the art of storytelling is expressed from a personal view and that an actor doesn't become someone else but brings the extremities of themselves to a role. I choose to act because it allows me to explore the parameters of myself.

 

'Acting is not about being someone different. It's finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.'
~ Meryl Streep

HAIR  50th Anniversary Production

 

 -Robert Metson in the show’s central story of Claude,  gives a nuanced and beautifully pitched performance - Tony Peters - Radio Times ****

- 'Robert Metson brings depth to Claude, torn between conformity and revolt' - Lynn Gardner - The Guardian ****

- Robert Metson’s Claude presents a far more complex character (albeit one who can give a gor- geous Mancunian twang to Manchester, England!) While we may not understand Claude’s motive for enlisting, Metson ensures that at all times his character demands our sympathy. - Jonathan Baz ****

Robert Metson is an effectively conflicted Claude. - Time Out - Tom Wicker ****

- The slightly ragged book, by James Rado and Gerome Ragni is always rather at the mercy of the great tunes, but Robert Metson gives a strong sense of Claude’s fatal trajectory from activist to soldier. - Ben Lawrence - The Telegraph ***

- The standouts in a cast of fourteen are Andy Coxon, charismatic as the lustful and rebellious Berger, Robert Metson as his reflective buddy Claude, and Laura Johnson’s wounded and intelligent Sheila. - Henry Hitchings - Evening Standard ****

- A youthful, uninhibitedly talented cast more than do theirs; it is led by Robert Metson as Claude, Andy Coxon as Berger and Laura Johnson as Sheila who bring an unfettered innocence and charm to these glorious songs. - Mark Shenton -  London Theatre ****

 

The Caucasian Chalk Circle

 

- 'The cast of 10, each of whom plays multiple characters, is led by Robert Metson who does an excellent job as the narrator and love interest' - Grace Ward - Everything Theatre ***

I'll Be Seeing you

 

- 'Robert Metson delivers a powerful and thoughtful performance as Jonah in writer Natasha Berger's first produced play' - Sandra Giorgetti - British Theatre Guide
