"Tim Jackson’s effortlessly integrated choreography."
Ben Brantley – New York Times
"Tim Jackson’s simple choreography (especially his brilliant use of the party crowds.)"
"The Choreography by Tim Jackson is fantastic. Watching the company moving about the stage during “The Blob” set in 1962 is both very funny and brilliantly done."
Boxing Over Broadway
"Choreographer Tim Jackson creates several dance routines that the audience savors and appreciates…A definite show stopper is the upbeat number “Bobby and Jackie and Jack”…The Irish jig section of this number is hilarious."
The Theater Mirror
"The lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg is as seamless as Tim Jackson’s choreography"
The Arts Fuse
"Choreographer Tim Jackson puts the dancers through the right paces in every decade, and provides some tongue-in-cheek amusement when the ensemble moves across the stage Fosse-style as a unit in “The Blob”."
"Friedman is aided by choreographer Tim Jackson, who swiftly commands a 21-member ensemble."
"Chipper, almost goofy numbers like “It’s a Hit” and “Bobby and Jackie and Jack” are lighthearted and delightfully fun."
