“Thrilling, energetic and electrifying”

“Trevor Nunn's direction is secure and delicate. Susan Stroman's choreography is similarly impressive - thrilling, energetic and electrifying, but above all, expressive, without ever impeding the dramatic flow. Such is her reputation (she has also choreographed Show Boat and Crazy for You in recent years), that the normally cagey Rodgers and Hammerstein estate have given her the freedom to change the original Agnes de Mille choreography (a permission they have never previously granted).”
