Lean Two Productions

Lean Two's varied producing credits include DANCE FOR LIFE at Her Majesty's Theatre, a unique evening in celebration of dance for the charity Crusaid, which was also a Royal Gala held in the presence of Diana, Princess of Wales: a showcase for THE LOOK OF LOVE based on the music of Burt Bacharach, which became a BBC TV production and also a musical at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego: THE CRAFT OF COMEDY starring Patricia Routledge and Peter Land at Chichester Festival Theatre: and the theatre, video and CD productions of THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR both in New York and London, starring Peter Land and Robert Meadmore, accompanied by Marvin Laird and Robert Scott.

NIJINSKY DEATH OF A FAUN, a compelling one man play which starred Nicholas Johnson, was performed in New York and in London at the Royal Opera House Linbury Studio Theatre, produced in association with Lean Two. This added a classical dimension to the company's expanding repertoire. 2000 also saw Lean Two produce Sheridan Morley's innovative JERMYN STREET REVIEW for the Jermyn Street Theatre, having previously established its producing association with Sheridan on the well-received NOEL & GERTIE.

Lean Two returned to the Jermyn Street Theatre with Sheridan Morley presenting NOEL COWARD TONIGHT, which comprised two of the Master's short plays - SHADOWS OF THE EVENING and RED PEPPERS. Later the same year, Lean Two joined the King's Head, Islington in producing the highly acclaimed ONE TOUCH OF VENUS, which brought Kurt Weill alive for a new generation of theatregoers.

Lean Two presented a very well received workshop of THE DANCING YEARS, but unfortunately were unable to move on to full production for reasons beyond their control.

Lean Two, Opus Arte and Threefold Music released a DVD of Gillian Lynne's ballet A SIMPLE MAN. The BAFTA award winning television production was commissioned by the BBC to make 'something' (their words) to celebrate the work of L.S. Lowry, Gillian decided to make a dance-drama. Carl Davis wrote the music, Northern Ballet Theatre performed it with Christopher Gable and Moira Shearer playing Lowry and his Mother, and Albert Finney set the piece off with an introduction to Lowry and his world. Also that year Lean Two were involved with another Workshop production based on the songbook of Leslie Bricusse.
