The Real Thing Reviews: 

“Rebecca Johnson is also formidable as his betrayed wife.” – The Stage

“Johnson adds weight and authority to the underwritten role of Charlotte” – The Express

 

All Our Children Reviews:

“Meanwhile Rebecca Johnson possesses the canny ability of underplaying Martha, blending her into the background as the all-seeing eye, then bringing her to the fore with magnificent force, appropriately. Her beautifully emotive performance in the final scene moved me to tears.” – Break A Leg

“There is strong support from Rebecca Johnson as Victor’s devout housemaid…” – The Guardian

“Rebecca Johnson as the maid, Martha, ticks along nicely but then in her final monologue speaks so softly and passionately that it is totally engrossing to watch.” – Theatre Weekly

“A powerful work with powerful performances the real shame is that the Jermyn Street Theatre isn’t a bigger venue for more people to see this.” View From The Cheap Seat

 

Present Laughter Reviews:

“… But there are incidental pleasures everywhere, from Rebecca Johnson’s sensible ex-wife…” – What’s On Stage

“…They all connected perfectly with their characters, Johnson was a superb match for West, bringing the right mixture of assertiveness and heart to Liz…” – Break A Leg

“… Rebecca Johnson is appropriately pragmatic as Garry’s ever-loving ex-wife Liz…” – A Younger Theatre

 

The Dog in the Manger Reviews:

“At times, Diana, played with a superb, highly erotic hauteur by Rebecca Johnson, can seem cruelly cold and calculating. At others she is devastated by the conflict between her desire and her duty.” – The Telegraph

“Rebecca Johnson’s Diana is a superbly contradictory mix of iron propriety and bubbling passion.” – The Guardian

“Johnson’s stiff, brocaded dress gives her the stern profile of a chess piece. She articulates beautifully the contemporary language of David Johnston’s translation and combines a sharp and caustic wit with vulnerability when her guard is down.” – The Stage

“Rebecca Johnson is excellent as Diana, ruthless when she wants her own way, callous towards anyone who might affect her happiness, yet vulnerable when she realises her true feelings for secretary Teodoro.” – British Theatre Guide

“Rebecca Johnson is delightful as the beautiful, hot-cold Diana, with her confusion of mixed messages.”  – A Curtain Up

 

Zindabad Reviews: 

“Richard Digby Day, as director, has assembled a first-rate cast that includes Frank Barrie as the worldly Wheeler, Justin Butcher and Rebecca Johnson as the tormented lovers.” – The Guardian

 

The Vortex Reviews: 

“Especially fine work from Rebecca Johnson as Florence’s truth-telling friend.” – The Telegraph

 

“Kerry Fox valuably stresses her formidable will-power and the determined blindness to the needs of other people as when, in this version, she soaks up a full kiss on the lips from her tartly penetrating confidante (pitch-perfect Rebecca Johnson) while serenely disregarding the possibly lesbian devotion it betokens.” – The Independent

“Rebecca Johnson […] brings exceptional candour and sensibility (plus a surprise touch of Sapphic desire) to her role as Florence’s confidante.” – The Reviews Hub
