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...

Bakersfield Mist review

KATHLEEN TURNER! The actual Kathleen Turner, live on stage in London! I could not have been more excited! For me the Duchess Theatre has been host to quite a mixed bag, but it was very hopeful that Stephen Sachs' new work would quench my thirst for fresh theatre. Now for me, Seeing Kathleen...

Miss Saigon review

The heat was certainly on when I ventured to the Prince Edward Theatre to see the much anticipated Miss Saigon. I LOVE the location of this theatre, nestled within the inner belly of kitsch Soho. On this particular evening it was lovely to have an alfresco pre show cider at one of the adjacent bars...

1984 OT

1984 review

I absolutely love theatre that has the ability to make me feel something, especially terror! That may sound odd but psychological thrillers are harder to pull off on stage and when a show manages to strike some real element of fear in me, I am impressed! What could be more terrifying than the...

The Pajama Game review

For me I find seeing Chichester Festival Theatre transfers a pretty safe bet (Sweeney Todd, Singin’ In The Rain, Kiss Me Kate etc.) Everything has been tried and tested and usually comes onto the West End wrapped in a nice neat little bow. The Pajama Game is no exception. This fun, frothy classic...

Matilda the Musical review

I do not know how I have made it this long without seeing Matilda the Musical. I love Roald Dahl, I love theatre, I find Tim Minchin (musician and lyricist) pretty hilarious and I have a huge respect for the Royal Shakespeare Company, so on paper this sounds like the perfect musical for me. After...
