REVIEW – Angels in America Part Two: Perestroika. National Theatre (Lyttelton), London. April 2017.

The wait is over! Part two of our Angels in American review is here.

The piece is epic and we thought part one was a sensation. So did the concluding part live up to expectations?

There were angels, death, fights, ghosts, laughs and more. We even bumped into playwright Tony Kushner who agreed to sign our script.

With over 7 hours of performance time we certainly needed a lay down by the end.

REVIEW – Angels in America Part One: Millennium Approaches. National Theatre (Lyttelton), London. April 2017.

Whoa, what a cast. Andrew Garfield, Russell Tovey, Denise Gough, Nathan Lane.

Tony Kushner’s piece is an epic, and we mean EPIC, story of love, AIDS, city life, fate, religion and being gay in 1980s America.

We couldn’t wait to see this and have been counting down the days since we booked. Well, it’s finally here and you can see what we thought in our video review.

Part 2 – Perestroika, coming soon!

 

REVIEW – Travesties, Apollo Theatre London. April 2017.

Second part of a Tom Stoppard double bill day!

Tom can be rather hard work as a playwright so would we cope with the potential intellectual OVERLOAD from seeing this second show?

The whole weekend also seemed to be sponsored by Patrick Marber who directed here and Don Juan in Soho (also writer). As I said before – just as well we like him!

There was a real “star is born” performance in this show. Give the video a watch to find out who.

REVIEW – Rozencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Old Vic Theatre London. April 2017.

Star casting is OUT IN FORCE in London at the moment, and what better way to guarantee “bums on seats” than to cast HARRY POTTER in your lead role?

Problem is – can he actually act? We share our opinion with you.

We had a Tom Stoppard double bill with this matinee and Travesties in the evening. It’s a good job we’re intelligent people as it was potentially enough to make your brain drip out of your ear.
