“For sheer exuberant ribaldry, it would be hard to find something to top the Protean Theatre Company’s production of The London Cuckolds. Strikingly modern and

wildly funny, the cast of thirteen, under Owen Thompsons direction, brings

enormous energy and infectious joy to this subversive tale.”

-The New York Times (D.J.R. Bruckner) – The London Cuckolds


The Doctor in Spite of Himself has a wise friend in director-adapter Owen Thompson. This production is laugh-aloud funny and more. It’s a clever postmodern burlesque.If Moliere’s ghost is standing in the back of this

theatre, he’s probably applauding.”

 -BackStage (Glenda Frank)  - The Doctor in Spite of Himself

                     “Great serendipitous pleasure! Very, very funny! This is farce,

and Owen Thompson resourcefully stages it as such.”

-The New York Post (Clive Barnes) - The London Cuckolds

"A storm of a show, like none you've ever seen! This Tempest is a totally immersive

      experience and a thrilling one at that! Director Owen Thompson has pulled

                               out all the stops in an effort to provide a memorable experience                                                        and he succeeds in spades! Action is everywhere and

                                                                 one is filled with wonder from start to finish!"

"This show is  farce in the extreme: humor tumbles like an avalanche and expert director Owen Thompson points the cast in the right direction to keep all the snowflakes falling!" (Warren Gerds) -The Nerd

“Skillful direction by Owen Thompson and first-rate comic acting make George

Bernard Shaw's Fictitious History an intelligent and witty evening of theatre.”

-TimeOut New York (Matt Stewart) - George Bernard Shaw’s Fictitious History

“Masterful!” “Great Staging!” “Super acting. Super play. Super directing.”

“This is the best production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof I've ever seen!"

"For all its production value & big name, The Rose Tattoo (also

now playing) doesn't come close!” “Mesmerizing!”

“Exquisite!” “We loved every minute of it!...

Highest recommendations!” “Riveting!”

-Show-Score Members -Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

“Extraordinary drama…starkly directed by Owen Thompson.”

-New York Newsday (Steve Parks)  - How I Learned to Drive


"Lunt & Fontanne is a solid win! Director Owen Thompson                      leverages the natural chemistry of his actors, and the                               result of this creative collaboration is lovely to behold!"

 -New York Theatre Guide (Mariana Howard) - Lunt & Fontanne

"When it is done properly, Charles Ludlam's takeoff on Victorian melodrama

is an absolute gas. Happily, the Seven Angels production offers deft

direction by Owen Thompson and top-drawer performances.

Bolstered by first class sets, sounds, lighting, and costumes, 

this version (and I've seen a few) is about as good as it gets!"

-The Newtown Bee (Julie Stern) -The Mystery of Irma Vep

        “For my taste, Owen Thompson has done more than expected. He’s taken a

         summer stock standard of days gone by and made it fresh without

         propping it up with cosmetics and nostalgia. Van Druten deserves 

         such care and clarity, and he magically receives it here.”

                 Outstanding Director of a Musical

           "Timeless! First-rate! A memorable attraction, as relevant today as 400 years               ago, exemplified by the intergenerational and multi- ethnic 

cast under the tight direction of Owen Thompson!"

-Queens Chronicle (Mark Lord) -Measure for Measure

"A rich and satisfying surprise for theatre-goers! Owen Thompson and

his company are to be commended for mounting a rare GBS gem!"
