Following a critically acclaimed European Premiere in Manchester, The Squad of Company Y transferred into London with this really special show written by the Zellnik brothers.

Associate MD for David Steadman on the BKL National Tour, starring Lucy O'Byrne and Andrew Lancel.
"A cast full of marvellous musical theatre voices ... Is there a stronger score in Broadway history?" (Broadway World)
The London revival of Rupert Holmes' Tony Award winning musical transferred from The Landor straight to the West End, playing at the Arts for four weeks.
Time Out ★★★★ "Excellent", WhatsOnStage "spirited musical direction."
An amazing couple of weeks working with director Mark Bell and writer Mark Ravenhill on an exciting adaptation of this graphic novel. I was also lucky enough to arrange the beautiful music of Jez Lowe for our talented cast.
Among my many gigs with the gorgeous Wendi Peters was this special one-off night at the Crazy Coqs.
We spun our way through an hour of our own arrangements of medleys and songs, all telling the story of Wendi's life and career in theatre, TV and on the UK baking scene!

An intimate tale of love, loss and the struggle to survive, this show was based on the reality of Mussolini’s persecution of gay men.
I MD'd a 16-strong ensemble of actor-musicians, as well as orchestrating the score and writing all the vocal arrangements.
The Stage were impressed: "Talented musicians, great musical direction, ... and the cast are terrific", as were Musical Theatre Review: "★★★★ - The music impresses from the off".
Mountview staged the first performance of this fantastic piece after its run in the West End. My compositions for this production have been licenced by Nick Hern Books, and are now offered to all companies performing the play.
I wrote the songs and score for this gorgeous adaptation of the classic children's tale, staged over Christmas 2021 at the Orange Tree.
Time & Leisure wrote: "The songs work astonishingly well - catchy and memorable for kids and adults alike – a rare feat in fringe musical theatre".
I was commissioned by LAO to write a new piece for their 40-piece orchestra.
Lyricist Mike Stocks and I won the 2018 Iris Theatre Xmas Factor competition with our song Heroes of Christmas, Celebrated Panto Dames. We are now writing a one-man show inspired by this song, intriguingly titled Oh Yes I Am!
