Recent reviews for Lees work.
Mack And Mabel - Southwark Playhouse London 2012
**** The Independent
The electric drop-dead wit of Lee Prouds choreography...a laugh out loud joy!
**** Time Out
Lee Proud's choreography is Broadway worthy - at the performance I saw, the show's two intricate set pieces brought whoops from the stalls.
**** London Evening Standard
Delightful set piece choreography from Lee Proud, high octane routines featuring Sennetts trademark Bathing Beauties and Keystone cops. The dancing in Tap your Troubles Away is equally exquisite.
**** 1/2 (four and a half stars) THE PUBLIC REVIEWS
The show is complemented perfectly with the choreography of Lee Proud. His precise joyful work lifts the mood exactly when it's needed, and receives great applause after every number, especially after the showstoppingly slick "Hit Em On The Head" and brilliantly staged "Tap Your Troubles Away" which need to be seen to be believed just how good they are.
Guys and Dolls - Upstairs At The Gatehouse
Sunday Express Jan 29th 2012
"... the show has so much swagger and style......... with Lee Proud's choreography providing effervescent delight in this resourceful staging"
The Stage Dec 2011
"...Lee Proud’s choreography complements the story and colours the narrative in darker tones than might be expected, culminating in the breathtaking Sit Down, You’re Rocking The Boat"
Fringe Review Dec 2011 - Guys and Dolls
"The true star of this show is the choreography by Lee Proud. The dance numbers are innovative and use the space and minimal cast in a way which lights up the stage, in particular in the show stopping “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat...”
The Public Review Dec 2011 - Guys and Dolls
"But the main beneficiary of the staging is Lee Proud’s choreography which is outrageously daring (people in the front row are safe, but may flinch!) and breathtakingly executed with style and accuracy by the 12-strong ensemble..."
Playstosee.com Jan 2012 Guys and Dolls
"Disappointingly often, Fringe productions of musicals fall down on the dance front – but from the first moment the cast floods the stage, the inch-perfect discipline and boundless energy of Lee Proud's choreography lifts this production into a class of its own. The dancing in this show is integral and important to the overall flavour of the piece, from the Cuban café to the crapshoot, and it's refreshing to see this element given the time and attention it deserves. It's even more impressive that every member of the cast, whether dance-trained or not, gets stuck in and shows their mettle as a triple-threat performer; able to act, sing, and hoof."
Northern Odyssey - Live Theatre
British Theatre Guide 2010
