Gerard Logan, Oliver Award Nominee for the RSC, National Theatre.

Ben’s total single-mindedness, outstanding ability and personal charm combine to make a very potent mix. Moreover, these gifts, it appears to me, are guided and tempered by an astute political-intelligence and a rare degree of compassion. His use of language and the degree of presence he brings on to the stage and in front of the camera makes him shine like a beacon. Ben brings the same degree of passionate focus to his teaching as he brings to his theatrical and camera work, and I cannot recommend this man highly enough.
