On The Town Reviews 01
Jun

By Open Air Theatre

Lizzy

The first reviews for On The Town are in and it’s official…this “stylish, sultry Manhattan musical is ONE HELLUVA SHOW” (The Times)

★★★★ “Director and choreographer Drew McOnie explores the work’s full balletic possibilities, and in Peter McKintosh the production has a set and costume designer who has a true artist’s way with colour.” (Radio Times)

★★★★ “The cast lunge, leap and pirouette as if their lives depended on it. In McOnie’s thrilling reinvention of Gabey’s dream ballet en route to Coney Island…the choreography is at its most passionate and it is fiercely ignited, punctuated and presented by Howard Hudson’s superbly imaginative lighting” (The Arts Desk)

★★★★ “McOnie’s choreography…has a freshly minted zing that captures the youthful, glad-to-be-alive exuberance of its protagonists.” (Guardian)

★★★★ ““McOnie’s exuberant work here is irresistible. A SMART, INFECTIOUS PRODUCTION” (Financial Times)
