REVIEWS

A wonderfully crafted score by Grant Olding, who presents a musical landscape in which the reassuring blitz-spirit certainties of orchestral swing are being challenged by the rawer, sexier attack of rock’n’roll.

The Guardian (Jekyll & Hyde)


Grant Olding's music delights, wittily incorporated into the action.

The Observer (Don Quixote)

 

Nicholas Hytner's masterstroke is the music by Grant Olding, which wraps all this lunacy into an irresistible package.

The Hollywood Reporter (One Man, Two Guvnors)


The best British musical I've seen in years.  There is a vitality and bounce to these songs that's as fresh and idiosyncratic as those in Avenue Q.

The Stage (Tracy Beaker Gets Real)

 

Driving, joyous interludes help turn a well-made play into an entertainment with the lift of an exhilarating musical.

The New York Times (One Man, Two Guvnors)

 

The production is punctuated by an onstage cellist, playing a score by Grant Olding reminiscent of Elgar’s turbulent, grief-filled cello concerto. It greatly adds to the power of the production.

The Telegraph (Broken Glass)


Grant Olding's music is notably spry, his dance-band pastiche The Champagne Slip is an infectious winner, and it is a pleasure to hear such felicitous lyrics.

Variety (Simply Cinderella)

 

Grant Olding's infectiously sunny skiffle songs lift the audience from mere happiness to eye-watering, comic hysteria.

Variety (One Man, Two Guvnors)

 

Grant Olding's Simply Cinderella christens Leicester's imposing theatre with a champagne sparkle.

The Guardian (Simply Cinderella)

 

Infectious music by Grant Olding, bubbles over with humour. A surefire hit.

The Evening Standard (One Man, Two Guvnors)

 

The infectious charm of Grant Olding's original musical numbers keep toes tapping along.

Film Intuition (Saving Santa)


Catchy music of contrasting eras coupled with snappy lyrics by the hot young composer Grant Olding.

The Independent (Simply Cinderella)
