"...Tamara Saringer's soaring musical direction delivered scale and scope...trusted favourites are revived with fresh dynamism. "

The Wizard of Oz, Leeds Playhouse 

- Samuel Payne,  ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS(4 *)

"...if anything, musically the show works even better. We all know and love Arlen and Harburg's great songs and they are extremely well sung,  but in the hands of Tamara Saringer's smart 11-piece band Stothart's underscoring and interludes are equally telling."
The Wizard of Oz, Leeds Playhouse 

-Ron Simpson,  WHATS ON STAGE (5*)

"...the orchestra led by Tamara Saringer are simply sublime..."

The Wizard of Oz, Leeds Playhouse 

- Sophie Joelle,  ONE PLAY MORE 


"Sending thrills, chills and shudders down one's spine, (the band does) magnificent justice to the way it pits sheer musical exhilaration against the sordid circumstances"

            - Paul Taylor,  THE INDEPENDENT (5*)

"(adorned) with one of his most scintillating jazz-based scores, stunningly played by a very generous 11-piece band under Tamara Saringer."

            -Mark  Shenton, THE STAGE (4*)

"Tamara Saringer conducts the first 11 piece band to play Southwark coaxing an exquisite treatment of Coleman's soaring score."

     - Jonathan Baz (5*)

"And what a score it is. In the hands of masterful MD Tamara Saringer, we get to hear the whole of the original Broadway score... Her  orchestra is the very finest"

-Julian Eaves, BRITISH THEATRE (5*)

 "Perhaps (Blakemore's) cleverest decision in bringing this production to fruition involved his choice of Musical Director... for in Tamara Saringer he has hit gold."
