Press night for the UK Tour of Barnum 10.09.2014

Yesterday saw the press night of the new production of Barnum at the Curve Theatre, Leicester and this morning the show enjoyed firstclass reviews due in no small part to the sterling work of director Jean Pierre Van Der Spuy, a name you will undoubtedly see again and again.

Jean Pierre is no stranger to first-class production. Formerly an actor, heworked on various West End shows before joining the touring production of MissSaigon for which he was appointed resident director. Since then, he hasbeen a creative for several major productions including a hugely successfulcareer alongside international director Laurence Connor as his associate on MissSaigon (London), Oliver! (UK Tour) and The Phantom of the Opera(London).

Barnum tours the UK until May2015
