Drew McOnie's unassumingly intelligent choreography is as radiant and precise as the neon displays around Times Square.

Undoubtedly one of Britain's most versatile choreographers.

Once Drew McOnie’s brilliant choreography starts taking centre-stage, you surrender to this strange but marvellous evening.

Drew is set to direct and choreograph Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Christmas 2016. 

The real spark behind this production is Drew McOnie’s blistering choreography. Even though the cast is probably the youngest around, this is the best devised and performed choreography I have seen all year (the only other contender, In the Heights, is another McOnie production)....McOnie is one of the best around and his talent is brought to the fore by a highly talented ensemble.
