“I was fortunate enough to work with Jack when he was Associate Conductor on the 2020 revival of ‘The Boy Friend’ at Menier Chocolate Factory. He has a natural talent and understanding of musical theatre and of storytelling, both through song and dance. His work is of the highest professional standard and I look forward to working with him again.”
