Howard Panter And Rosemary Squire Top The Stage 100 For The Fourth Year Running
ATG’s Howard Panter and Rosemary Squire have topped the The Stage 100 for a fourth consecutive year. The exclusive list, compiled annually by the industry’s leading newspaper, ranks the powerhouses of British theatre. This year, Panter and Squire share the revered accolade with the National Theatre. One of the biggest production highlights of 2012 was the ATG initiated, highly-successful reunion with Royal Court Theatre Productions. This collaboration led to a 2012 Royal Court West End season at the Duke of York’s. Laura Wade’s Posh, April De Angelis’ hit comedy, Jumpy starring Tamsin Greig, and the highly-acclaimed Constellations starring Sally Hawkins and Rafe Spall, all received critical acclaim, garnering rafts of 4 and 5-star reviews. This trio of plays each celebrated and promoted fresh new writing, with Constellations winning this year’s Evening Standard Best New Play Award. The last 12 months also saw the UK premieres of Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5 The Musical and All New People starring Zach Braff; the Australian premiere of Legally Blonde the Musical in Sydney; Pinero’s classic comedy Dandy Dick starring Patricia Hodge and Nicholas Le Prevost; Joe Penhall’s Blue/Orange starring Robert Bathurst; South Pacific in London and on UK Tour; the return of a brand new production of Spamalot to the West End; Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker in London and on UK Tour; Simon Callow starring in Being Shakespeare and The Mystery of Charles Dickens in London; The Mountaintop starring Samuel L Jackson and Angela Bassett in New York and 10 FFE produced regional pantomimes starring Hollywood favourites David Hasselhoff and Priscilla Presley. Howard Panter said: “Rosemary and I are both humbled and delighted that The Stage continues to recognise that ATG is a great British success story, which brings music and creative brilliance to countless audiences around the globe. “We have just celebrated our 20th anniversary, and the diversity, depth and breadth of what ATG does is, in many ways, unparalleled. “2012 was a historic year for the UK, in particular London, and we were delighted to play a small part and make our own contribution. “We would like to congratulate the National Theatre, with whom we are honoured to share this distinction, on their success.” Upcoming highlights for 2013 will include Howard Panter and British director Jamie Lloyd’s first collaboration, Macbeth starring James McAvoy in the reconfigured Trafalgar Studio 1, starting in February. In the West End, Passion Play by Peter Nichols, the inaugural production from Tali Pelman Productions starring Zoë Wanamaker at the Duke of York’s, will open next spring. There will also be a brand new production of The Rocky Horror Show which will celebrate its fortieth anniversary; a UK tour of Priscilla Queen of the Desert starring Jason Donovan, set to open in Manchester in February; and a new UK tour of Maurice’s Jubilee; Press release issued by: Ambassador Theatre Group
