New York, New York, it’s a helluva town!

The Open Air Theatre's biggest dance musical yet.

Due to injury, Fred Haig has now been replaced by Jacob Maynard.
 

“McOnie's sexily hilarious and thrillingly danced revival of a Broadway classic makes the perfect summer treat.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, Express)

“Connolly plays a blinder... comic timing that allows her to leap from kitten to full-on tiger in the blink of an eye.”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“Played out with charm, character and class... All about the ladies... all three are superb dancers... So much fun.”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“A freshly minted zing of its own that captures the youthful, glad-to-be-alive exuberance of its protagonists... Breezy, joyful.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“McOnie's choreography is thrillingly alive to the matchless blend of raunch and wit in Bernstein's gloriously brassy music.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Rarely pauses for breath and McOnie and his terrific cast maintain a superb momentum. The songs are dynamite... A helluva show.”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“Lavish and imaginative rendering of the 1944 Leonard Bernstein musical.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“It is dance that drives this musical: balletic, acrobatic and on at least two occasions truly expressive, truly thrilling.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“McOnie’s exuberant work here is irresistible... A smart, brash, infectious production.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“Best appreciated by the head rather than the heart... The real star of the evening is the supple and sinuous choreography.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Ballet scenes are McOnie’s strong suit, and they’re a dream-like celebration of being young, American and free... Breezy charm.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Captures splendidly the adventurous fluidity of the piece; the way skittish incidents bleed into full-on dance numbers. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)
