Kirk is a northern theatre director based in Manchester, whose recent credits include the 10th Anniversary Concert Production of Howard Goodall’s Love Story (Cadogan Hall) and The Distance You Have Come (Apollo Theatre). Other recent credits include Kirk’s reimagining of JM Barrie’s Peter Pan at the Barn Theatre, and the new family musical Magical Merlin, which opened at London’s Fortune Theatre this Autumn. This Christmas Kirk will present the UK premiere of Matthew Lombardo’s play Who’s Holiday starring star of RuPauls Drag Race, Miss Cracker. Kirk’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me A Little in 2020 won critical acclaim:
★★★★ The Telegraph “This smartly staged collage of off-cuts from the Sondheim canon is highly recommended and deserves a further life”
★★★★ The Guardian “Jameson succeeds in presenting the pair as being alone together… if you’re missing live theatre it’s a tonic”
★★★★ The Stage “Director Kirk Jameson… lets the songs speak to our time, and it’s all the more resonant for it”
In 2018 Kirk helmed the new stage adaptation of Dreamwork’s Madagascar starring X-Factor winner Matt Terry, which having toured the UK and Asia now prepares for tours of both Australia and North America.
