“Andrew Keates’ production of our musical “Dessa Rose” was a stunning coup de theatre. Even in a tiny space, and with minimal props and scenery, he managed to bring vivid life and immediacy to the story. The audiences were over the moon every night and the reviews for this British premiere of our piece were sensational. We could not be more pleased to recommend Mr. Keates to anyone looking for a smart, sensitive, savvy and passionate director.” Lynn Ahrens (Librettist and Lyricist) and Stephen Flaherty (Composer) (A Man of No Importance, Ragtime, Dessa Rose)
