Directed/Choreographed NEWSIES/Red Mountain Theater 2017
"Robin Lewis pulls double duty in "Newsies" as director and choreographer for the play.  He brilliantly encapsulates characters explosive emotions and molds them into amazing dance sequences.  I haven't seen dance numbers this expressive and energetic since Jerome Robbin's choreography in the 1961 film West Side Story.'"

"This production is of a high quality, it is fast paced, visually stunning and appealing to children." "The musical number "Step In Time" is one of the most outstanding I have seen on any stage in years"
"Not only do you continue to raise the rafters – including maybe the best single production number ever on a Birmingham stage" "It begins as your standard musical number, adds some "Newsies"-style leaps and bounds using brooms as props, builds to a wonderful, stop-the-show tap-dancing moment, and then ... well, we won't spoil the surprise"
