The Fourth Wall  by A.R. Gurney

"Kennedy Center awardee Howard, a music man in his own right, has his Thespians hitting all the high notes in this production and then some."

                       Manchester Journal

Big River

"A funny, daring musical show, BIG RIVER is a winner in its current incarnation"

"There's an opportunity here to be entertained and enlightened and even challenged a bit in two or so hours of musical magic as brilliantly directed by Tim Howard."

                         Berkshire Bright Focus
 


"Thanks to the directorial vision of director/choreographer Tim Howard and his very talented cast, I finally see and accept this story for the ground-breaking piece of anarchy that it is."

HAIR

“It’s astounding what Howard did with this production of HAIR.  I find the production mysteriously satisfying.”


Gerome Ragni, Book and Lyricist of HAIR

Bill Marx - The Boston Phoenix


 

“In a world premier, revised form at Act I Arena Theatre, Tim Howard staged a strong revival of Hair. Polished and timely, the production explodes off the stage with life, song, and dance, as well as synchronized film clippings of events drawing one back 20 years-to Kent State, the Kennedy’s, and Vietnam."

“As usual, Tim Howard's musical direction is intelligent and finds a few new things to do with songs that have become standards. I particularly liked the notes of anger in his fully enjoyable take on "Mein Herr".
