“The choreography in this show is second to none. We see incredible feats of large ensemble numbers executed to perfection, compliments of Choreographer Matthew Bourne and Dance Captain Elizabeth Earley. The ensemble is the most lively ensemble to take the stage all season at The Hippodrome by truly showing the audience just how much fun they are having in these numbers…” - DC Metro Theatre Arts
Thayne's positive outlook, sincere encouragement to each dancer and his obvious talent all packaged together made for an inspirational morning. He had so much knowledge to share and all the dancers came out motivated to work hard and be better. And I loved the fact that he had so much varied experience -- stage, tv, film, etc!” - S. Ferree
