“Christopher Marney is a one-off.  As Saint-Saens did pastiche, so has Marney. Hysterically funny…I was with Alexander Grant that evening -He laughed himself silly. It’s almost up there with Jerome Robbins’ ‘The Concert’. Mr. Marney is multi-talented: a brilliant producer, a good, quirky choreographer and he also dances. He is going to be the first Christopher Marney. ”
Craig Dodd – Dancing Times (2010)
