THE SEASON​

Royal & Derngate, Northampton | New Wolsey, Ipswich

“A miniature Christmas miracle”

THE TIMES - Sam Marlowe

 

“Electrifying performances light up a glittering New York Christmas story in this warm-hearted, tuneful two-hander...Tim Jackson’s sprightly direction, culminating in a great sight gag in a Chinese restaurant, keeps the relationship with romcom sentimentality always more curt than Curtis.”

THE GUARDIAN - Mark Lawson

"It is rare to see a brand-new piece whereby the story, music and staging work completely harmoniously...Tim Jackson's direction is fast-moving and detailed...'Tis the season for a knockout new musical - joyful and refreshing"

BROADWAY WORLD​ - Jenny Ell

“Jim Barne and Kit Buchan have written a classic Christmas romance enhanced by a confident production...Tim Jackson’s direction is sure-footed “

THE OBSERVER - Clare Brennan

“warmth, wit and a sense of wonder...Tim Jackson's well-judged production”

WHATSONSTAGE - Michael Davies

“Director Tim Jackson gives each character plenty of time to dwell on their feelings, with slow, tender moments emerging organically from the comedic rush"
THE STAGE - Dave Fargnoli

"This production arrives fully formed and confident in its very strong story and musical arcs. Under Jackson’s masterly direction, by the end of the show the audience is totally invested in this couple’s tale."

MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW​ - Tina Foote

as CHOREOGRAPHER

 

"Tim Jackson’s effortlessly integrated choreography."

NEW YORK TIMES – Ben Brantley on Merrily We Roll Along

"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."

THE SPECTATOR - Kate Maltby on The Kissing Dance

"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"

THE STAGE - Tim Bano on Dusty

"choreographed with cheeky wit by Tim Jackson" 

THE INDEPENDENT - Paul Taylor on The Secret Diary Of Adiran Mole Aged 13¾

"Tim Jackson's inventive staging of the numbers, particularly the football matches, are a highlight."

Whatsonstage - David Phipps-Davis on The Beautiful Game

“the show builds neatly to its can-do, feelgood, tap-dancing finale…when they do finally dance, you want to dance too.”

THE GUARDIAN - Lyn Gardner - on Stepping Out

"Tim Jackson’s high-energy choreography whizzes pleasurably through the decades"

THE TIMES - Sam Marlowe on Dusty

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

THE TIMES - Sam Marlowe on Little Shop Of Horrors

"Superbly choreographed Pierrots, adds to the fairy tale unworldliness"

THE STAGE - Scott Matthewman on The Roar Of The Greasepaint The Smell Of The Crowd

"Against the fizz of Tim Jackson’s high-octane choreography, Kingsley’s Springfield stands still, cutting poses with the utmost of presence and poise."

VARIETY - Matt Truman on Dusty

“Flying high about the storyline, Tim Jackson’s choreography is a welcomed addition of brilliance”

GAY TIMES - Jordan Priestley on Stepping Out

 

“the Chorus Line-style finale cannot fail to leave you with a smile on your face”

RADIO TIMES on Stepping Out

as MUSICAL DIRECTOR

"The band rocks"

THE TELEGRAPH - Jane Shilling on Little Shop Of Horrors

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

THE GUARDIAN - Alfred Hickling on Little Shop Of Horrors

"MD Tim Jackson’s excellent octet" 

THE INDEPENDENT - Edward Seckerson on Floyd Collins

 

"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 - Mark Shenton on Little Shop of Horrors

"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."

THE STAGE - Mark Shenton on Floyd Collins
