STEPHEN CHOREOGRAPHED SUNSET BOULEVARD AT THE ENO FOR THE LIMITED RUN IN 2016. THE SHOW RECEIVED MANY 5 STAR REVIEWS AND A WONDERFUL SIX STAR REVIEW AND OPENED ON BROADWAY IN 2017.

Review Highlight; Another exceptional aspect of this production is the clever and utterly appropriate choreography from Stephen Mear. It buzzes and bristles and bounces and bops, infectiously enlivening the set pieces and adding characterful nuance to the unfolding narrative. As ever, Mear makes the dancing look effortless and natural; it’s the key to his genius.

STEPHEN DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED

42ND STREET AT THE THEATRE DU CHATELET IN PARIS.

NOVEMBER 2016 - JANUARY 2017

Review Highlights; The Chatelet’s producers have lavishly and tastefully invested a fortune in their cast and creatives and it shows. If you can beg, borrow or steal a ticket to Paris, go. This production of 42nd Street is quite simply musical theatre perfection - there's no better show to be seen this side of the Atlantic. 


STEPHEN DIRECTED AND CHOREOGRAPHED THE WONDERFUL PRODUCTION OF THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE AT THE KILWORTH HOUSE THEATRE IN LEICESTERSHIRE IN 2016.
Review Highlights; The thing about Mear which elevates him into the stratosphere is his grasp of character within every physical direction. His choreography, of course, retains the hallmarks of the decade, but each number is laced with something unusual to hook onto.
Review Highlights; Mear sews musicality into every moment. Ensemble routines are slick, sublime and perfectly executed. The leads are permitted to bring the idiosyncrasies of their characters to the movement and each takes great pleasure in this freedom. Character and dance blend perfectly whether it is a delightful tap sequence in an elevator, a show-stopping bespectacled typing pool/office clerk danceathon or the frenetic hoofing of a gaggle of women disappointed by their menfolk. Mear keeps everything bubbling nicely, ecstatically. Even the quieter, more introspective moments twinkle and have their own measure. It is pure joy to experience.
