Kelly Robinson press reviews

"Robinson staged "The Mikado" on an adrenaline rush.  The action was Ko-Ko's wooing of Katisha, which provided some of the biggest laughs."
Arisona Daily Star - Cathalena E. Burch

  “Perhaps the single largest credit for the production must go to Kelly Robinson, who co-directed and choreographed it.  His choreography is an  unusual blend of a kind of klutzy company-ness and the  polished art of dancing.”  ( Canadian Stage Company – COMPANY) The Globe & Mail – Ray Conologue  
“…a  theatrically dazzling production with some breathtaking moments…”

(Canadian Stage Company – THE THREE PENNY OPERA) Toronto Star – Robert Crew  
“Director and choreographer, Kelly Robinson has given the work an enjoyably sharp-edged jazzy  style that strongly recalls the Bob Fosse film .”

(Citadel Shoctor Theatre – HAPPY END) The Globe and Mail – Vancouver  
“…and Kelly Robinson’s production of  the show is beautifully crafted…The various effects of  magic have been selected  with  theatrical  taste and simplicity.  His skill is much in evidence.”

(Young People’s Theatre – A CHRISTMAS CAROL) The Globe and Mail – Ray Conologue  
“It’s…remarkable  what director Kelly Robinson and  his talented cast  have done.  He has an eye for detail.  He enriches each  scene  with telling  nuances so  that  the stage is always bustling  with activity.”

(Stage West, Calgary – BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN  TEXAS) Calgary Sun – Louis B. Hobson  
“One of  the evening’s chief delights is the expert comedy  director Kelly Robinson generates in moving his forces around the stage.”

(Edmonton Opera – H.M.S. PINAFORE) Edmonton Journal – Liz Nicholls  
“Director Kelly Robinson’s creative staging is delightfully witty.  Every  movement, throughout  the show is a treat.”

(Edmonton Opera – The MIKADO) The Edmonton Sun – Donna Marie Artuso  
“Stage director Kelly Robinson has devised a wry, colorful  production busy  with  snapping Japanese fans and  twirling  parasols.  His chorus work is right on the money.”

Edmonton Journal – Mairi MacLean  
“single set served effectively as the context for Kelly Robinson’s imaginative staging, which moved seamlessly between the principal singers and individual members of the chorus, the story unfolding with the taut pace of music theatre.” (Calgary Opera, SWEENEY TODD)
