Kirk Jameson | Theatre Director

Kirk is a northern theatre director based near Manchester. He is currently associate director on the revival of Stockroom’s The Glee Club, opening at Oldham Coliseum and touring the UK.

Praise for Kirk’s recent Barn Theatre production of Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me A Little :

☆☆☆☆ The Guardian: “Jameson succeeds in presenting the pair as being alone together… if you’re missing live theatre it’s a tonic”

 

☆☆☆☆ The Telegraph: “This smartly staged collage of off-cuts from the Sondheim canon is highly recommended and deserves a further life”.

 

☆☆☆☆ The Stage: “Jameson never forces the point that this is a show about two people feeling isolated in their tiny apartments… it lets the songs speak to our time, and is all the more resonant for it.”

Kirk co-created and directed a reimagining of Peter Pan at the Barn Theatre for socially distanced and online audiences – watch the EPK here.
