Tim Jackson is Choreographer on MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG at Huntington Theatre
Maria Friedman’s Olivier Award winning London production of Sondheim’s musical is recreated in Boston, running until the 15th October.
The New York Times
“Tim Jackson’s effortlessly integrated choreography”
“this portrait of the slippery road to success in mid-20th-century Manhattan has never seemed more emotionally resonant, or more gratifyingly fulfilled.”
“authentic enough to keep its audience bathed in tears”
“Friedman is aided by choreographer Tim Jackson, who swiftly commands a 21-member ensemble.”
“this production projects the traumas and the joys of growing up and attaining wisdom — no matter the cost— and elevates it into the rarefied circle of Sondheim's most memorable works.”
“brings urgency to the universal questions this musical, with its exceptionally complicated history, asks about ambition, loyalty, and what gets left behind on our journeys through life and career.”
“The lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg is as seamless as Tim Jackson’s choreography.”
“this outstanding production proves that this show is very much Sondheim being Sondheim — and that is pretty damn good.”
“unfolds with a charisma that disarms, and then utterly delights.”
“Everything in this production comes together, from Soutra Gilmour’s crisp scenic and costume design, Tim Jackson’s simple choreography (especially his brilliant use of the party crowds) and Matthew Stern’s high-energy, 10-piece orchestra.”
Tim Jackson is Choreographer on STEPPING OUT in the West End
Maria Friedman directs Richard Harris’ 1908s musical, starring Amanda Holden and playing at the Vaudeville Theatre until 17th June.
London Theatre 1 ★★★★★
“a truly delicious slice of comedy writing.”
“keeping us engaged and hooked from the modest church hall beginnings to the toe-tapping, sparkling finale.”
“brilliant, feel-good choreography from Tim Jackson. Stepping Out is really not to be missed – step on up to the Vaudeville to catch this sparkling gem of a show.”
Broadway World ★★★★
“spot-on, witty choreography from Tim Jackson”
“this Calendar Girls-meets-Chorus Line piece is inarguably successful as toe-tapping, big-hearted entertainment, and should join Strictly in getting Britain's dance classes packed out.”

“a great night’s entertainment.”
“lovely, lively production, staged with a charismatic group of actor-musicians on a sensibly spare set, bubbles with ebullient good humour”
The Stage ★★★★
“powerful British musical”
“heartfelt and sincere”
“a far grittier integrity as Hayley Grindle's deliberately dowdy designs whisk us, with little change of setting, from factory floor to union meetings and domestic scenes.”
The Reviews Hub ★★★★
“It’s all stripped back and simple: props are handed on, the breakfast teapot is popped back in the factory locker, one scene is overlaid on another.”
“so much fun”
