Pinsent Masons sponsored theatre receives critical acclaim for latest production

16 Dec 2014 | 10:02 am |

The Menier Chocolate Factory theatre’s new production of Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins has received rave reviews by theatre critics.

The show, directed by Jamie Lloyd and supported by principal sponsor Pinsent Masons, opened last week at the 200 seat theatre just around the corner from London Bridge station and stars Catherine Tate and Mike McShane amongst a top ensemble cast.

First staged in 1990 and written by the man who gave us Sweeney Todd , A Little Night Music and Into the Woods, Assasins is based around the various odd balls who have attempted, some successfully, to assassinate US presidents.

The Menier’s revival has garnered glowing reviews across the board and is currently one of the hottest tickets in town. The show has proved so popular that regular tickets and tickets through the Pinsent Masons Golden Tickets Scheme, a subsidised theatre ticket scheme targeting young theatregoers aged 16-21, have completely sold out. 

“The Menier has a worldwide reputation for staging Sondheim’s musicals supremely well” says Pinsent Masons’, Head of London Office, Martin Roberts. “Its productions of ‘Merrily We Roll Along’ and ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ both transferred to the West End and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Assasins were to follow them.”

Pinsent Masons, a longstanding patron of the Arts, became the principal sponsor of Menier Chocolate Factory earlier this year.
