Rip It Up - The 60s review

Featuring the most 'schoolgirl-crush-worthy' Strictly winners, Rip It Up - The 60s is an unabashed, swinging good time. The set-up is simple: one set, a small band and a whistle stop tour through the biggest hits and trends of the Sixties. Cavin Cornwall as our capable MC (with a delicious honeyed...

Austentatious: The Improvised Jane Austen Novel review

Prithee, reader. Let not your Mondays pass in dreary needlework. Make haste to Fortune Theatre, where an as yet unknown Jane Austen novel shall be performed for your pleasure. Like a line of eligible bachelors, no two shows are ever the same, thanks to the formidable talents of the improv group...

Come From Away review

The West End is in need of a new musical which breaks the mould. The current landscape sees an abundance of jukebox shows (Mamma Mia!), musicals based on movies (Waitress, 9 to 5) and theatres under refurbishment (Drury Lane, Dominion). Of course, there’s nothing wrong with these shows – many...

All About Eve review

The original, 1950s All About Eve is a film that pays homage to the theatre; Ivo van Hove's stage adaptation of All About Eve is a play that pays homage to film.

Home, I'm Darling review

Sitting down to watch Home, I’m Darling at the Duke of York’s Theatre, you could almost make the mistake that you’re stepping into a repurposed Mad Men set. The stage is transformed into a perfectly suburban mid-century modern home, and Katherine Parkinson spins around in beautiful frocks. In...

Tina is the epic biopic show about Tina Turner, charting the highs and lows of her rise to fame and her battle to stay in the spotlight featuring Tina Turner’s biggest hits. Unlike many shows of its kind it doesn’t shy away from hard-hitting issues and the audience learn about Tina’s absent...
