Circles Tricycle Theatre
The Tricycle Theatre has had a lot of good press recently, including the success of West End transfer, Hangbagged, which seems a testimony to the venues programming skills.

Molly Wobbly at the Phoenix Arts Club
A new musical called Molly Wobbly…the title doesn’t exactly give much away, but I was lead to believe it was something to do with boobs. So, who doesn’t love a good show about breasts?
Young Vic Happy Days
An honest review of Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days starring Juliet Stevenson.
Theatro Technis I Love You Because
It feels pretty apt that as I sit and reflect on Pinot Productions latest musical offering, I Love You Because, I am sipping a sweet, warm milky coffee. The show maintains quirky references to coffee throughout, thus encapsulating the perils of the New York dating scene through the modern drink of choice (rather like a […]
American Psycho at the Almeida Theatre
Official Theatre checked out the sell out production of new musical American Psycho at the Almeida Theatre in Islington, starring Matt Smith in the lead role of Patrick Bateman.
The Scottsboro Boys at the Young Vic Theatre
