"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."
"choreographer Tim Jackson has made this into a much bigger-feeling show than the space would suggest…highlights include ‘Nonesuch’ – surely the most entertaining way of giving directions possible – and ‘Beating the Knave,’ in which the score and slapstick choreography work together to hilarious effect."
"The production is very lively, and Tim Jackson’s choreography is engaging."
"The choreography by Tim Jackson and the minimalist set (designed by Samal Blak) work well together and the tiny Jermyn Street Theatre has never looked so capacious."
