Festival of Americas: A rare feast of imaginative theatre a marvel of stage invention... At last, director Jack Langedijk has hit on a truly distinctive style...

Langedijk's work is very visual, very intense and always exciting.

A Midsummer Night's Dream kept audiences captivated with wonderful performances, an intriguing story and gruesome costumes and set... The show, directed by Jack Langedijk, was touching and funny.

What Langedijk and his team finally present is very satisfying in a number of ways. It is, first, bumptious, noisy, farcical and has all the elements the groundlings adore. It also has a savvy blend of very sophisticated elements...

But for sheer scene-stealing perfection Jack Langedijk's demented dentist - he also plays three other parts - is the highlight of the show.

 

Director Jack Langedijk directed Pericles for his own company, the Association of Producing Artists, then took it to Edmonton where it won raves at the Citadel Theater...

Jack Langedijk’s production is a beautiful, imaginative show that’s endlessly theatrical and inventive, while never pretentious.

Jack Langedijk's MacHeath is one of the aces in Mercury Theatre's Threepenny Opera... Langedijk captures the reptilian nature of the character, his smile instantly becoming fury, his charm curdling to frenzy...

Langedijk's direction brings an overriding sense of order to what, in less capable hands might otherwise have been a chaotic maelstrom of disparate elements and invests the production with a driving sense of raw and relentless vitality that never lets down throughout the evening.
