In The Press:
"Tim Jackson’s effortlessly integrated choreography."
Ben Brantley – New York Times
"Much of the credit also belongs to Tim Jackson’s deliciously comic choreography. Jackson performs feats of ingenious creativity…making physically manifest the most obscure jokes in the score, but never losing their subtlety."
"If the choreography locks in particularly well with the funky, soulful band it’s because Tim Jackson is in charge of both."
"There’s really strong choreography from Tim Jackson, culminating in a fantastic routine for Pet Shop Boys’ What Have I Done to Deserve This. It’s one of the best moments of the show"
"choreographed with cheeky wit by Tim Jackson"
"A full-bodied onstage band of eight, under the expert musical direction of Tim Jackson, bring out all the thrilling textures of Guettel’s score…It’s still only February, but we’ll be lucky if we see a better production of a better musical all year in London."
"Tim Jackson’s high-energy choreography whizzes pleasurably through the decades"
"Superbly choreographed Pierrots, adds to the fairy tale unworldliness"
"Tim Jackson’s choreography embodies the superficial, brightly-coloured surfaces of Sixties pop culture in ways that somehow only emphasise the poignant incongruity of Dusty’s success, with her high-necked clothing, enormous soul voice and tortured sense of self."
"Against the fizz of Tim Jackson’s high-octane choreography, Kingsley’s Springfield stands still, cutting poses with the utmost of presence and poise."
"An early number, Skid Row, is a bracing, acerbic howl of resentment from the underclass"
“Flying high about the storyline, Tim Jackson’s choreography is a welcomed addition of brilliance”
"Under the musical direction of Tim Jackson, Alan Menken’s ravishing pastiche music and Howard Ashman’s witty lyrics are heard at their most effervescent."
“the show builds neatly to its can-do, feelgood, tap-dancing finale…when they do finally dance, you want to dance too.”
"MD Tim Jackson’s excellent octet"
"the company neatly executes Tim Jackson's economical choreography"
"The band rocks"
"Luke Sheppard’s modestly scaled production fields just 10 actors…to populate the entire show, but with choreographer Tim Jackson he manages to make it seem busy and full."
“the Chorus Line-style finale cannot fail to leave you with a smile on your face”
“There are moments of genial excess: Graham Kent’s Spitting Image-style Harold Wilson steps out in a daft morris dance with his aides, miniskirted dollybirds gyrate manically in a tacky Ford advertisement, and when the villainous big boss arrives from the US…the scene is an absurd salute to Americana, with a jigging Ronald McDonald, Marilyn and Elvis.”
"Sheppard and his colleagues – choreographer Tim Jackson, designer Tom Rogers and lighting designer Howard Hudson – create the perfect atmosphere, completely immersing the audience in compelling drama and song."
