"If the choreography locks in particularly well with the funky, soulful band it’s because Tim Jackson is in charge of both."

The Guardian

"The band rocks"

The Telegraph

★★★★

 

"Jackson leads a five piece band to give the tunes such a vibrancy and movement that it’s not too surprising to discover he’s behind the choreography too. A real song-and-dance man."

Manchester Confidential.

 

"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 Stage

 

"An early number, Skid Row, is a bracing, acerbic howl of resentment from the underclass"

The Times

★★★★

 

"Every element of set, lighting, sound, music, choreography, performance and stage management is what it should be, where it should be, when it should be."

The Observer

 

The Sunday Times

★★★★

 

WhatsOnStage

★★★★★

 

"Tim Jackson has double duty, as Musical Director and Choreographer. He discharges both roles with distinction…the staging of Somewhere That’s Green was magical."

British Theatre

 

"Music Director Tim Jackson works wonders with his five-piece band."

The Arts Desk

 

"The skilled band, led by MD Tim Jackson, drive out Menken’s terrific score with a real power."
