Presse : "The only reason for this King Kong to exist is its title character." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"The titular creation, designed by Sonny Tilders, is truly impressive: a 20-foot, 2,000-pound animatronic marvel that would be the pride of any amusement-park thrill ride." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Director/choreographer Drew McOnie keeps the action moving well enough, starting with a knockout montage sequence, but after a while, the dancing starts to seem like a "Hamilton" rip-off. But none of that matters if seeing a giant life-like gorilla puppet on the stage is your idea of great theatre, and it is awesome. All others: enter at your own risk." Roma Torre for NY1

"Even if the star puppet might be better suited for an arena spectacle or theme-park attraction, you can't take your eyes off this technological marvel, not least for its incredible facial expressiveness. It's completely appropriate that the animatronic gorilla and its operators get the show's final bow." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"It’s all about the 2,000-pound gorilla in the room, and this visually dazzling production delivers big time despite a mishmash of styles and generic tunes." Frank Rizzo for Variety

Commentaires : In our 2017 production of On The Town, Olivier Award-winner Drew McOnie directed and choreographed our biggest dance musical to date. McOnie's choreography was widely celebrated by critics, expressing how 'no one can fill a show with exhilarating jazz and beautiful balletic movement quite as explosively as Drew McOnie' (The Stage). Alongside the 'stunning dance ensemble' (Musical Theatre Review), Bernstein's score was 'played with pinpoint precision by the 17-piece orchestra' (Musical Theatre Review), making the production 'a glorious reimagining of Broadway rarity' (The Arts Desk). Many of the cast members were also noted for their individual performances including 'stand-out man' Danny Mac, 'whose effortless tenor gives gorgeous voice to one of the show's loveliest, most mellow numbers' (The Stage), and Siena Kelly: the way she 'dances every step is if her life depends on it' (The Guardian). This production was also nominated for Best Musical Revival in the 2018 Olivier Awards.
Presse : Mail on Sunday "Leonard Bernstein’s musical romcom is a glorious Valentine to the Big Apple. It’s a helluva score, pulsating to the JAZZY, BLUESY, SEXY, SLEAZY, EXHILARATING and ROMANTIC rhythms of the city that never sleeps" "'Sex and art don’t mix'...They mix perfectly in this show, the hottest to trot in London Town"
The Times “Stylish, sultry Manhattan musical is ONE HELLUVA SHOW” “LAVISH and IMAGINATIVE…as more performers than you think possible twist and spring and strut and swing in midair, this amphitheatre in Regent’s Park fills with spring fever”
The Guardian “AS DELICIOUS AS ICE-CREAM ON A HOT SUMMER'S DAY” “McOnie’s choreography has a freshly minted zing that captures the youthful, glad-to-be-alive exuberance of its protagonists. As the trio of sailors, Samuel Edwards, Danny Mac and Jacob Maynard, dance athletically and sing tunefully and are immensely likeable…Siena Kelly’s Ivy dances every step is if her life depends on it”
Observer "ON THE TOWN HITS ITS NEW YORK STRIDE in Regent’s Park." "In a dream sequence, night-tinted by Howard Hudson’s wonderful lighting, everyone moves as if they were melting. Peter McKintosh’s set and costume design would have been unimaginable at the Open Air theatre before imaginative Timothy Sheader took over as artistic director."
Financial Times “McOnie’s exuberant work is irresistible. A smart, INFECTIOUS production”
Sunday Times "A SHOW WITH PULLING POWER. On The Town is a high-octane, superslick romp."
Radio Times “A DAZZLING REVIVAL. 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.” “Maggie Steed stands out as the whisky-swigging dragon of a singing teacher Madame Dilly.”
The Arts Desk “Triple threat Danny Mac and co are UNMISSABLE...a glorious reimagining of Broadway rarity” “Crisp-as-Vermouth, towering, scissor-legged Miriam-Teak Lee is so delicious that you wonder where she has been hiding… only to discover that this is, astoundingly, her professional debut.”
WhatsOnStage “Lizzy Connolly, Siena Kelly and Miriam-Teak Lee steal this show. Connolly is hilarious … she is GRACEFUL and HILARIOUS and manages Hildy's comedy with ease and perfect timing”
Daily Telegraph “It looks exquisite, and sounds gorgeous rising to the bravura challenge of the score with it’s clarinet siren wails, clownish shifts of tempo, and thrilling collision of jazz age dreaminess with bombardments of brass.”
Daily Express “VIVACIOUS…the stage erupts in a whirligig of dance and flashing colours; if there is any justice, newcomers Miriam-Teak Lee and Siena Kelly are on their way to stardom, while Lizzy Connolly as a gum-chewing saucebox and veteran Maggie Steed as a Jack Daniel’s-swigging singing teacher are outstanding”
Evening Standard “To the strains of Leonard Bernstein’s beautiful, often haunting, music, the ensemble twirls about the stage in a flurry of colourful costumes.”
The Stage “No one can fill a show with exhilarating jazz and beautiful balletic movement quite as explosively as Drew McOnie” “The stand-out man is Danny Mac whose effortless tenor gives gorgeous voice to one of the show's loveliest, most mellow numbers, Lonely Town; Jacob Maynard brings an IRRESISTIBLE sweetness to the character of Chip; Lizzy Connolly is SCANDALOUSLY SENSATIONAL” “Drew McOnie's sexily hilarious and thrillingly danced revival of a Broadway classic makes THE PERFECT SUMMER TREAT”

Presse : MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Implausible and unnecessary musical...I wouldn't have minded a few tuneful Mediterranean ditties here in place of the instantly forgettable two dozen numbers by John Robinson that fatally clog the action."
DOMINIC MAXWELL for THE TIMES says, "Too Close to the Sun is pretty dire. But it’s such a muted, muddled experience, such a waste of time and talent, that there’s not really much to snigger about...It’s not good; it’s not so bad it’s good. It’s just bewilderingly drab."
RHODA KOEING for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Stilted production...Robinson's trite music pootles about aimlessly and tunelessly, and the lyrics (a Robinson-Trippini collaboration) eschew rhyme as well as reason."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Of more than 20 musical numbers, there isn’t one that either delights or lodges itself in the memory...Pat Garrett’s production plods through this rubbish heap of a show with leaden tedium."
FIONA MOUNTFORD for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "The dialogue is flat and the music peculiar, with song after identical song coming over all difficult and resolutely tune-free. "
