Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games review

My My! Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games is an extravaganza! The only real way I feel I can respond to such a feast of the eye is via the medium of dance (see video.) However as they pay me to write, I suppose I ought to pen (tap?) a little something too. Lord of the Dance kind of goes like this:...

Forbidden Broadway review

Being a regular week night theatregoer, It is a very rare opportunity for me to see a show on a Saturday Matinee! “What genuine luscious joy,” I thought to myself whilst arranging a pre-theatre lunch at Bills with my friend (time to EAT before a show is also a novelty!) And I have to say, I had...

Dessa Rose, Traf Studios 2014 bigger

Dessa Rose review

So rare is it that I feel totally enveloped in the midst of a piece of theatre, but during last night’s production of Dessa Rose at Trafalgar Studios 2 it was hard not to be! In a tiny black box studio with around 100 seats, Stephen Flatherty’s musical about the unlikely bond between a black...

Let It Be review

Whilst I wouldn’t proclaim to be the Beatles biggest and best fan in the entire world, I am certainly pretty down with their music. I love a cheeky bit of “Hard Days Night,” “She Loves You,” and “Back In The USSR” amongst many others and who doesn’t really! As an open minded...

The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess review

I bloomin love Gershwin! I really do! Plus I have literally (YES literally) been singing “Summertime” since the first hint of light and warmth on my skin back in April. Coincidentally I also love (lovelovelove) the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, the epitome of Summer time in cultural London....

Shakespeare in Love Noel Coward Theatre London

Shakespeare In Love review

I was not the only one who was pretty excited about Shakespeare in Love, I mean the film was a hoot AND written by an actual playwright (Tom Stoppard) so already potentially lent itself to a stage transfer. When I heard the production was to be directed by Declan Donnellan and designed by Nick...

The Importance Of Being Earnest review

“The Importance of Being Earnest; a great Summer play” I thought, “heck, despite the fact that it is a touch over performed, it is pretty amusing and there is a lovely garden scene. I wouldn’t mind spending some time tittering amid some theatrical shrubbery!” Oh how wrong I was. Writer...

Daytona review

I was pretty excited to get my teeth stuck into this, dare I say ‘gritty’, drama, especially with stars such as Maureen Lipman, Harry Shearer (none other than the voice of Mr Burns and Ned Flanders from the Simpsons) and the play’s writer Oliver Cotton in the three roles. The plot of Oliver...

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time review

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is finally back where it belongs on the West End following its untimely departure in December last year. I was thrilled to be invited back to see the show a second time as it has been over a year since my first viewing of the stage spectacular (and...

The Book of Mormon review

There is no denying that brand Mormon is an unstoppable force and has quickly established itself as the coolest “must see” musical in town (I mean even flipping Prince Harry has graced the Elders with his presence!) Around 14 months have passed since I saw the performance on it’s electric...

One of the beauties of the film Amélie is that very little happens. There’s no drama, no test of faith and no real obstacles to be overcome. And yet it’s mesmerising, whimsical and charming. So how could a musical adaptation live up to its following, especially when Yann Tiersen already created a fantastic score? Amélie […]
