Fatal Attraction bigger

Fatal Attraction review

With the film having coined the now notorious notion of the Bunny Boiler, I was very excited to see an onstage adaptation of James Dearden’s Fatal Attraction; who doesn’t love a bit of psycho b*ch of an evening! I was especially eager to see this production for three varying reasons, one, I was...

Blithe Spirit Angela Lansbury

Blithe Spirit review

Hoping along to the Gielgud Theatre is always a rather glamorous affair; the architecture is beautiful and it has one of my favourite theatre bars in the West End (I am a sucker for a good mezzanine and a sparkly chandelier!) Therefore not only was I rather excited to be sitting in the lush Stalls...

Urinetown Ot Size

Urinetown review

  The St James Theatre in Victoria is quickly becoming one of my favourite new venues. After a long week, I was ready to be entertained, so off I went to take in the UK premiere of Urinetown. Other than being intrigued by the title, I knew little about the show and was unsure what to expect...

The Weir review

  Conor McPherson's 1997 Olivier Award-Winning play, The Weir, has made a triumphant West End transfer from the Donmar Warehouse to the Wyndhams Theatre. And what better time of year to welcome a dark, chilling story than the gloomy months of winter. I would say that The Weir, directed by...

Mamma Mia! review

Mamma Mia! Here we go again… That’s right, another day another ABBA hit blasting out from the stages of 8+ countries. Mamma Mia! took to the London stage 15 years ago and has since played to over 50 million people across the world. However on my second visit to the show, now running at the...

Stephen Ward 430x300

Stephen Ward review

As a big Andrew Lloyd Webber fan, I was thrilled to hear a new show by the man himself was coming my way! Further to that, on learning that the hotly anticipated musical was to be based on the biggest sex scandal of the 1960’s, I was frankly gleeful; sex, drugs and 60’s swinging sounds like my...

Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake review

Whilst I will freely admit that I am a terrible dancer (I tried ballet as a child but was always the badly timed tyke seen at the back of the stage dropping her crown or falling over her feet…cute at 5 years old, not so much now!) I am always in great awe whilst watching dance pieces, and nobody...

The Duck House review

The Duck House is the latest resident at the ever changing Vaudeville Theatre. I have to say I was looking forward to the show as I am a big fan of Mock the Week and Have I Got News For you and it just so happens the show has been penned by Dan Patterson and Colin Swash (respective writers of the...

HenryV

Henry V review

The final production in the inaugural season by the Michael Grandage Company may well prove to be the most popular, thanks in the main to the casting of Hollywood favourite Jude Law as  Henry V. In many ways Grandage has left the heaviest text of his season to the very end, although some careful...

Twelve Angry Men

Twelve Angry Men review

There has been a flurry of new plays opening in the West End in the past few weeks, presumably to establish themselves in time for the festive holidays. I would say that Twelve Angry Men is the best of the bunch. It is a true hard hitting drama that will achieve what many productions fail to...

“Both beautiful and hard to look at” It’s always hard to tell what’s impressive circus. I can’t even do a forward roll so seeing someone do a handstand is impressive to me. Even if tricks are good it can be hard to immerse yourself as you become immune to the spectacle. Gravity & Other Myths’ […]
