THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY

Music and Lyrics: Neil Bartram
Book: Brian Hill

2015 Nominee for Best Production of a New Musical (Fringe/Regions)– BroadwayWorld UK/West End

 An elegant and inventive production of a tender, witty and moving piece. – Jonathan Kent  

Under the sure, subtle and trusting direction of Christopher Lane, the actors all became real people on stage, uncommon in a musical, and a real achievement. - Richard Maltby Jr.   

If you’re looking for fringe theatre with no frills or complications just great storytelling, this show is the right equation. - West End Wilma

BRIGHT LIGHTS BIG CITY

By: Paul Scott Goodman

... a wonderfully slick, raw and honest production which favours a stripped back style and achieves that rare musical hat trick of great singing, great dancing and great acting. - What's on Stage (Four out of Five stars)

It’s taken 11 years for Paul Scott Goodman’s Off-Broadway rock musical to surface in London, and it’s hard to imagine a better case being made for it than Christopher Lane’s energetic, strongly cast production .…  A thoroughly welcome example of how to produce contemporary musical theatre to a high standard on the fringe.                   - Fourth Wall Magazine

A raw and exciting production, comparable with Rent; Tick, Tick Boom and Songs for a New World. - So So Gay

JOHN & JEN

Music by: Andrew Lippa
Lyrics by Tom Greenwald
Book by: Tom Greenwald and Andrew Lippa

FOUR out of FIVE Stars    The Sunday Express

Chris’ production of john & jen was illuminating for both Andrew (Lippa) and myself: warm, witty and wise.  I’ve seen many incarnations of the show and this was, without a doubt, one of the most imaginative and provocative to date.  - Tom Greenwald (Book writer and Lyricist, john & jen)

 …an emotionally complex piece with searing, resonant songs that are both gorgeously melodic in their own right and full of wit and feeling.  Those qualities are expertly brought out in Christopher Lane’s intense and moving production…  - Mark Shenton (The Stage)
