Théâtre: Union Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 3 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Wednesday 16 January 2008Première : Friday 18 January 2008Dernière : Saturday 09 February 2008Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Georgina O'Brien • Producteur : Avec : Vanessa Barmby (Annie Oakley), Matthew Eames (Frank Butler), William Ludwig, Anna McAuley, Tom Walker, Claire TrussonCommentaires : An extremely cut-down production, this actually used hand-puppets in place of the children in the show, and supplemented the two piano accompaniment with a series of strange sounds including spoons! However, it was warmly received for the great charm of its principal performers..

Call Me Madam (2009-07-Upstairs at the Gatehouse-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Upstairs at the Gatehouse (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 1 mois Nombre : Première Preview : Saturday 11 July 2009Première : Tuesday 14 July 2009Dernière : Sunday 16 August 2009Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Drew McOnie • Producteur : Avec : Beverley Klein (Sally Adams) , Gido Schimanski (Cosmo), Chris Love (Ken Gibson), Kate Nelson (Princess Maria ), Matthew Trevannion, Rob Wilshaw, Chris NeumannPresse : 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. "

Full Monty (The) (2009-12-New Players Theatre-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Charing Cross Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 1 mois Nombre : Première Preview : Wednesday 02 December 2009Première : Thursday 03 December 2009Dernière : Saturday 02 January 2010Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Chadd Garvie • Producteur : Avec : Adam Bayjou (Lukowski), Peter St James (Dave), Tegwan Tucker (Pam), Gareth Nash (Malcolm), Nick Fawcett (Harold), Charlene Qwaye (Vicki), Adam Colbourne (Ethan), Anthony Wise (Jeanette), Herve Goffings (Horse)Commentaires : Very often a cut-down, small-scale fringe production of a formerly “big” musical would provide a tighter focus, more direct audience involvement, and therefore create a valid and worthwhile re-interpretation of the original work. However, it was felt this was not true of “The Full Monty”. With its reduced cast and smaller settings this was felt to be a disappointment.
Grey Gardens (2016-01-Southwark Playhouse-London)Type de série: Original London

Me and Juliet (2010-10-Finborough Theatre-London)Type de série: Original Europe
Théâtre: Finborough Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 3 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Tuesday 05 October 2010Première : Thursday 07 October 2010Dernière : Saturday 30 October 2010Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Sally Brooks • Producteur : Avec : Laura Main (Jeanie), John Addison (Bob), Robert Hands (Larry), Dafydd Gwyn Howells (Mac), Jodie Jacobs (Betty), Peter Kenworthy (Ruby), Gemma Atkins, Terry Doe, Daniella Gibb, Reeda Harris, Brendan Matthew, Stephen McGlynn, Tom O’Brien, Olivia O’Shea, Anthony WiseCommentaires : The show opened on Broadway on May 28 th 1953 and closed after 358 performances. It opened to an enormous advance, and had recovered its production costs within six months. When it closed, after ten months, it had made a small profit of $100,000, and later played a six week season in Chicago. For anyone except Rodgers and Hammerstein this would have represented a success, but the show is usually classed as a failure when compared to their other mega-hits. (An unknown Shirley MacLaine was in the chorus on Broadway, and an equally unknown Shirley Jones was in the Chicago chorus.). Subsequent short-run off-Broadway revivals were staged in 1970 and 2002, but the show has never had a major Broadway revival. This fringe theatre version was billed as its European premiere – 47 years after its first performance.
Mikado (The) (2008-07-Union Theatre-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Union Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 3 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Wednesday 23 July 2008Première : Wednesday 23 July 2008Dernière : Saturday 16 August 2008Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Vanessa Fenton • Producteur : Avec : Christopher Howell ( Ko-Ko ), Jacob Chapman (Mikado), Damion Scaecella (Nanki Poo), Stuart Armfield (Pooh-Bah), Martin Milnes ( Yum Yum ), Samuel J. Holmes (Katisha), David Grewcock (Pish-Tush), Patrick Kelliher (Pitti-Sing), Nathan Kiley (Peep-Bo)Commentaires : With piano accompaniment and a 13-strong all-male cast this was regarded as great fun. It was the second production of “Mikado” in 2008.
Pajama Game (The) (2008-04-Union Theatre-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Union Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 3 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Tuesday 15 April 2008Première : Friday 18 April 2008Dernière : Saturday 10 May 2008Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Sally Brooks • Producteur : Avec : Billy Boyle (Hines), Kate Nelson (Babe Williams), Graham Weaver (Sid Sorokin), illiam McCafferty (Gladys) , Susan Travers (Mabel ), Sean Pol McGreevey ( Prez), Anthony Wise (Mr Hasler)Commentaires : This pocket-sized revival with a small band half hidden behind clothes rails was a welcome reminder of this tuneful, joyful show, and although staged in a tiny space, the Fosse-inspired choreography was much praised. For some performances the understudy, Stephanie Nielson, appeared in the leading role of Babe Williams.
Parade (2011-08-Southwark Playhouse-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Southwark Playhouse (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 1 mois Nombre : Première Preview : Wednesday 10 August 2011Première : Tuesday 16 August 2011Dernière : Saturday 17 September 2011Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Tim Jackson • Producteur : Avec : Alastair Brookshaw (Leo Frank), Laura Pitt-Pulford (Lucille Frank, Leo's wife), Simon Bailey (Tom Watson), Mark Inscoe (Hugh Dorsey) , Kelly Agbowu, Jessica Bastick-Vines, Michael Cotton, Terry Doe, Natalie Green, David Haydn, Abiona Omonua, Philip Rham, Samantha Seager, Victoria Serra, Samuel J Weir.Commentaires : Played with a seven-strong band, it suffered from comparison with the much-praised Donmar production of five years earlier.Presse : “Just occasionally the pace plods, and the play’s liberal values seem a touch preachy, but this is a show of tremendous heart and vocal power” (D. Telegraph).
Ragtime (2016-10-Charing Cross Theatre-London)Type de série: Revival

State Fair (Scène) (2009-08-Finborough Theatre-London)Type de série: Original London
Théâtre: Finborough Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 1 mois 1 semaine Nombre : Première Preview : Tuesday 04 August 2009Première : Tuesday 04 August 2009Dernière : Saturday 12 September 2009Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Sally Brooks • Producteur : Avec : Philip Rham (Abel), Susan Travers (Melissa), Laura Main (Margy), Gareth Nash (Harry), Sion Lloyd (Wayne), Kellie Shirley (Emily), David Botham (Pat), Sarah Waddell, Anthony Wise, Robert ReesCommentaires : “State Fair” was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s only film musical, first made in 1945 and then re-made in 1962 with Pat Boone and Ann-Margret. It was first adapted into a stage musical in 1969, and premiered in St Louis, but it was not very well received. Twenty-three years later a completely new stage version was created, using a different combination of songs, and was staged at the 1995 Iowa State Fair. This version opened on Broadway in March 1996, the last show to be produced by the legendary David Merrick. It ran for just 110 performances, and was generally regarded as a piece of old-fashioned nostalgia . This fringe-theatre version was its European premiere and opened to generally positive reviews. Due to popular demand its original closing date of 22 August was extended three weeks to September 12th.Commentaires longs: Les chansons:
(From the film versions): It Might as Well be Spring, Our State Fair, That’s For Me, Isn’t it Kinda Fun?, All I Owe Iowa, It’s a Grand Night For Singing, More Than Just a Friend.
(Re-cycled or cut from other shows ): So Far, Driving by Night (Allegro ), The Man I Used to Be, Next Time it Happens (Pipe Dream ), You Never Had it So Good (Me & Juliet ), When I Go Out Walking with my Baby, Boys and Girls Like You and Me (Oklahoma)Presse : “This is nothing short of a miniature musical miracle.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“The Finborough is a wonderfully resourceful fringe theatre and somehow creates the feel of what a rather tautological lyric calls “the best state fair in our state”. A dozen cast members even manage to dance energetically in a space designed for a dozen Iowan piglets.” Benedict Nightingale, The Times
“The triumph of Thom Southerland’s production is to telescope this panoramic portrait of a rural family leaving the farm behind for a few days to visit the Iowa State Fair into the smallest, tightest...theatrical space imaginable, yet filling it with teaming life and bursting with irrepressible choreography and lovely, lilting songs, that are...beautifully rendered.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“Thom Southerland's bouncy and ebullient production, which marks the work's European premiere, it turns out to be akin to a lightweight but equally tuneful Oklahoma!.” Michael Billington, The Guardian
“Anyone wanting the breadth of repertory a national theatre might be expected to provide should travel the West London axis between Richmond and its Orange Tree theatre and the Finborough near Earl’s Court. Both mix eclectic new plays with neglected British and foreign works. And neither lets its miniscule stage space limit ambition.” Timothy Ramsden, Reviewsgate
“There's a plentiful supply of memorable tunes.” Theo Bosanquet, WhatsOnStage
“Whilst State Fair doesn't have a You'll Never Walk Alone or a Shall we Dance, it does have Academy Award-winning It Might As Well Be Spring and more besides, most particularly It's a Grand Night for Singing and All I Owe Ioway which joyously bookend the interval.” Sandra Giorgetti, British Theatre Guide
“Some super tunes. So Far and It’s a Grand Night for Singing are among those that wouldn’t disgrace Oklahoma!.” Benedict Nightingale, The Times
“On the minuscule Finborough stage, with an eye wateringly large cast, the musical’s charms are proudly displayed like the back teeth of a prize hog.” Lucy Powell, Time Out
“Musically it’s meltingly good: comic barbershop numbers, wildly catchy show tunes and ballads that soar.” Lucy Powell, Time Out
“Much heart warming, toe-tapping fun is on offer.” Lucy Powell, Time Out
“In its melodic paean to middle America, I found this infinitely more enjoyable than some of Rodgers and Hammerstein's later, tendentious excursions into east-west politics.” Michael Billington, The Guardian
“As often happens in musicals, pleasure increases in inverse proportion to the size of the space.” Michael Billington, The Guardian
“Director, choreographer, pianist and cast ensure that…this State Fair is far more than a village fete.” Timothy Ramsden, Reviewsgate
“Beautifully handled by actors who are believably wholesome.” Rhoda Koening, The Independent
“The stand-outs being Siôn Lloyd as sheltered farmer's boy Wayne, Laura Main's equally-innocent Margy and Philip Rham as hog-serenading Abel.” Theo Bosanquet, WhatsOnStage
“There is particularly appealing work from the genial Siôn Lloyd and dulcet Laura Main.” Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard
“There’s also seriously good singing from principals that include Laura Main as Margy.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“Main’s renditions of It Might As Well Be Spring and Next Time It Happens are simply ravishing.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“Laura Main is sympathetic as Margy, suitably frail and dreamy.” Michael Darvell, Classical Source
“Laura Main is a beautifully yearning Margy Frake.” Lucy Powell, Time Out
“Laura Main, pure and simple as the truth never is, fresh-faced and smiling.” Timothy Ramsden, Reviewsgate
“Laura Main and Siôn Lloyd as the love-smitten Frake siblings, and Sarah Waddell and David Botham as the objects of their desire, perform with great elan.” Michael Billington, The Guardian
“Laura Main is outstanding as Margy Frake.” Robert Shore, Metro
“Robert Rees and Martin McCarthy were particularly engaging.” Johnny Fox, Londonist.com
“There’s particularly eye-catching work from ensemble member Martin McCarthy, who brings a free-wheeling virtuosity to every movement, but particularly a stand-out tap routine.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“Played engagingly by Gareth Nash.” Sandra Giorgetti, British Theatre Guide
“Philip Rham and Susan Travers, as Ma and Pa, hold the show together with optimism and serenity.” Rhoda Koening, The Independent
“Superbly delivered by Phillip Rham.” Lucy Powell, Time Out
“Philip Rham’s Abel is the evening’s comic mainstay.” Robert Shore, Metro
“Anthony Wise contributes some nice cameos.” Michael Darvell, Classical Source
“Anthony Wise, as the curmudgeon in the apple barrel, provides a touch of tartness.” Rhoda Koening, The Independent
“Thom Southerland has not only mounted a heartfelt, touching revival, he has done so on the handkerchief-size playing area of the Finborough, where he stages a mini-hoedown that raises the roof.” Rhoda Koening, The Independent
“Choreographer Sally Brooks works wonders to ensure that the company execute nifty steps.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“Some nifty footwork from choreographer Sally Brooks.” Michael Darvell, Classical Source
“Sally Brooks achieves choreographic miracles on a tiny stage, and Magnus Gilljam, as musical director and pianist, allows us to savour the texture of the songs.” Michael Billington, The Guardian
“Sally Brooks performs miracles with group choreography.” Timothy Ramsden, Reviewsgate
“This is the fringe at its best - talent and commitment replace budget, yet nothing feels stinted in Wai Yin Kwok’s clever design, or Magnus Gilljam’s strong musical direction.” Mark Shenton, The Stage
“Musical director Gilljam gets some terrific sounds from the cast and - corny though it may be to say it - it's a grand night for singing!” Sandra Giorgetti, British Theatre Guide
State Fair (Scène) (2010-08-Trafalgar Studios 2-London)Type de série: Revival
Théâtre: Trafalgar Studios (Londres - Angleterre) Salle : Studio 2Durée : 3 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Tuesday 03 August 2010Première : Thursday 05 August 2010Dernière : Saturday 28 August 2010Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Sally Brooks • Producteur : Avec : Philip Rham (Abel), Susan Travers (Melissa), Laura Main (Margy), Gareth Nash (Harry), Karl Clarkson (Wayne), Jodie Jacobs (Emily), Stephen McGlynn (Pat), Gemma Boaden , Anthony Wise, Lewis GrantCommentaires : This was the same production that had played the Finborough in 2009, though with several changes of cast, but again with piano-only accompaniment.
Unsinkable Molly Brown (The) (2009-05-Landor Theatre-London)Type de série: Original London
Théâtre: Landor Theatre (Londres - Angleterre) Durée : 3 semaines Nombre : Première Preview : Wednesday 27 May 2009Première : Friday 29 May 2009Dernière : Saturday 20 June 2009Mise en scène : Thom Southerland • Chorégraphie : Sally Brooks • Producteur : Avec : Abi Finlay (Molly Brown), Sean Pol McGreevy (Johnny Brown), Susan Travers (Grand Duchess), James Bartholomew (Prince DeLong), Tony Wise (Shamus Tobin), Julie Ross (Buttercup Grogan), Richard Woolnough (Christmas Morgan), Claire Everson (Mrs McGlone)Commentaires : The show had waited almost fifty years for this London premiere. The Landor is a larger space than many other fringe venues, so the decision to use actor-musicians rather than a separate band was considered to be a money-saving device rather than an artistic decision – and it was generally felt to have handicapped an already dated and clunky musical.
